Proceeds of Book to
Aid Tsunami Relief
   Shades of Blue — The Tsunami
Children’s Relief Project is a collection
of drawings by children in Sri Lanka
affected by the tsunami. Musician John
Tesh, his wife, actress Connie Sellecca,
and their children, recently traveled to
Sri Lanka to aid victims of the tsunami
disaster. While in the Ampara district
relief camps, they provided paper and
crayons to the children survivors as art
therapy. Realizing that publishing the
resulting drawings, along with stories
from and about the survivors, would be
a wonderful way to raise money to di-
rectly benefit the people and children in
these distressed villages, the Tesh fam-
ily has created the book, Shades of Blue.
   All of the proceeds from the sale of the
book will be donated back to the tsunami
survivors in the Ampara district of Sri
Lanka. Shades of Blue can be purchased
from The Sellecca-Tesh Foundation at
booth #4142.

medical team, enabling point-of-care solutions and research breakthroughs. Whether you’re selecting information for

research communities or decision support for professionals, Elsevier provides access to the highest quality scientific,

technical and health information in multiple media, including innovative electronic products like

ScienceDirect® and MD Consult. After all, getting the right information into the right hands at the

right time is critical to the outcome of any examination. Building Insights. Breaking Boundaries.™
