Storytellers Unite for Tsunami Relief

Atlanta Journal-Constitution (Atlanta, GA) , January 27, 2005

Summary:

As stories of despair spill from southeast Asia, storytellers around the world are offering their gifts in an effort to help victims of the Dec. 26 tsunami that killed an estimated 225,000 people, many of them children swept from their parents' arms by the giant wave.

Last weekend, local entertainers gathered at a DeKalb County church for a "Story and Song Tsunami" that featured music, dance and storytelling. It was one of many events planned in coming months to benefit tsunami victims. Donations from audience members raised more than $4,000 for the Atlanta-based international relief agency CARE.

Similar events in Canada, Japan, Singapore and throughout the United States will benefit the Mercy Corps, Oxfam, Save the Children and the American Red Cross.
