PRINCETON (WVVA) - Karin Mayr, founder of Sabika, a Pittsburgh-based, national direct sales jewelry company created by women for women, presented ChildLaw Services a check on June 20, 2013 from funds raised by Sabika, its consultants and its party hostesses during a two-month campaign this past spring.

"In my 60+ years I have learned, however great the challenges, the pain, and the fear, we never are and will never be alone," says Sabika Founder Karin Mayr. "Someone will always reach out, often seemingly from nowhere.  ChildLaw Services is representing the very essence of what I am describing. They bring together those in need and those who are lucky enough to be the givers. And many of those who are sharing now were in need before.  We are honored to partner with ChildLaw Services and the incredible work they do every day."

Ms. Mayr also met with ChildLaw Services Executive Director, Cathy Wallace to discuss the future plans in building an ongoing partnership of support.

Cathy Wallace says this support means so much to them.

"The money received from the generosity of the Mayr family along with the consultants and hostesses will allow us to improve the structure of the haven to meet an increasing need in our community.  As the largest donor to date of our Capital Campaign, Sabika's family and employees honor us and the children we serve by making our dream come true for expansion and improvement of our facilities to meet the needs of the increasing numbers of children requiring services in crisis situations."

 Childlaw Services works to advocate for the well-being of children by giving them a stronger voice through legal representation, policy development, and coordinated planning.

 Legal services include: child abuse and neglect representation, child custody, domestic violence and sexual abuse help, juvenile delinquencies and other special programs.
