San Diego (January 7th, 2005) – Reef and Californian surf artist Robb Havassy have teamed up to offer Robb’s poster “Olas in an effort to raise funds for Surf Aid, a grassroots organization actively helping the victims of the recent Tsunami. The poster is available on www.reef.com.
The Surf Aid organization specializes in treating diseases in remote regions of the world, which prompted them to get involved in the Tsunami relief effort.
The Surf Aid team has been sent out to the island of Nias, in Western Sumatra, which was one of the hardest hit areas. Regarded as a great surf spot, in an area enriched by warm and generous people, Nias is now in dire need of aid.
A team of Surf Aid doctors, surgeons and nurses will be operating in a mobile medical relief station providing treatment and prevention of diseases like Malaria, Typhoid and Cholera to the people of Nias effected by the Tsunami.
Donations are needed to sustain the effort, and to supply medical equipment, food and water. To help raise money, the “olas poster will be available on www.reef.com for $20, and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to Surf Aid. A limited amount of signed posters will be offered at $100.
A sincere thanks to Moore- Wallace Printing for helping to make this poster happen!
