and her FlutterBears. We are a vital
part of L.O.V.E. (Loving Others Via

Substance to help humanity, any age,

make this beautiful Planet Earth we
live on, an even better place to live...
in Peace, Joy, Excellence,Harmony,
and Love. We were founded in 1987 in Murfreesboro, Tn. the Heart of Tennessee where I lived,
We were, at that time, named after a
song called "Feed His Children". At
that time Dee Dee Prestige was going
through a transformation to legally be-
come Diana G. Christian. Attorney Jim
Wiseman was the brilliant mind who
created the Charter. Diana had wonder-
ful publicity due to the help and work of
Jimmy Aubuchon, who had the idea for a song to help stop hunger of the children of the world. Woonsocket, R.I. told of this song called "Feed His Children", the
writers, Jimmy Aubuchon, Keith Bradford, Diana Christian had composed and all proceeds were signed over to the new non profit, even the Music Producer, Bob McRoberts signed the gift. Diana was booked, as an entertainer-singer at Attleboro, Mass., LaSallette Shrine to stay for six days and perform eight one hour concerts in four of those days. Father Pat, one of the Priests was her sound person who perfectly operated the equipment as she sang her album cuts to the original tracks.besides her Christmas Classics CD called "Peace On Earth", and of "Just A Closer Walk", now renamed "Spiritual Soul", (Gospel Classics) by Diana Butterfly Rose Christian, the CD.which has always been used to help raise funding to help others.
Diana's Romantic Classics CD, "Love Songs From The Heart" are offered for a gift of $10 plus $3.75 S&H. Above is the original statement of purpose and the original Feed His Children logo...the song is playing on this website because it is the song that inspired the Non Profit Corp. We
hope you love it.....

This guy, Dan Anderson is our chauffer and is always a great help to L.O.V.E. and The FlutterBears and all their Forest Friends. Dan met Diana in Two Harbors, MN. in 2006, they were friends as she volunteered with Community Partners of Two Harbors' Bayview Terrace. Dan had surgical procedures on his foot of highly indepth repair. There was not a volunteer available after four o'clock, so Diana offered her services to Carole and Kirsten, the officials in the office. There the friendship grew steadily and Dan is still helping Diana with her work for the FlutterBear projects.
