international children’s advocacy group dedicated to honoring
exceptional child advocates from around the world. In 2004, she was
granted The Humanitarian Rose Award, presented by The People’s
Princess Charitable Foundation, Inc., which was established to further
Diana’s commitment to help the needy. In addition, she has received
the International Humanitarian Award from the National Association for
the Advancement of Haitians, the National Achievement Award from E-Town
Radio, the Citizen Cool Award from the Ben & Jerry’s Corporation, and
the Gift of Life Award from Rotary International. She is a member of
the Miami Children’s Hospital Hall of Fame, and has been awarded
honorary citizenship in Haiti.
Krabacher spends nearly every waking hour working for the children of
Haiti, either fundraising in the United States, or providing hands-on
help in Haiti for the 3,300 children in the care of Mercy and Sharing.
All U.S. administrative overhead is paid for by the Krabachers and the
Board of Directors so that 100% of every donation goes directly to the
care of the children in Haiti. Donations to Mercy and Sharing are
contributed by private individuals, corporate sponsorships, and by
Krabacher and her husband, Joe Krabacher, an Aspen attorney and real
estate developer. All profits earned by Krabacher from the sale of
ANGELS OF A LOWER FLIGHT will go to aid the children of Haiti.
