A new CD raising money for some of the areas of Indonesia still recovering from the Boxing Day Tsunami tragedy went on sale exclusively in New Zealand last week.

SurfAid – The Music has been produced by SurfAid International, an organization that aims to improve the health and self-reliance of communities in remote geographical locations regularly visited by traveling surfers.

The new CD features songs specially donated by acts such as John Butler, Bob Marley, Liam Finn, Neil Finn, The Black Seeds, and a special duet between Crowded House and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder.

The organization was set up in New Zealand in 2000 by Dr Dave Jenkins, and now has bases in California, Indonesia, and Sydney. The new CD – which is being endorsed by Kelly Slater – is hoped to raise awareness of the situation in Nias and the Mentawai Islands, off Sumatra, Indonesia, where SurfAid runs a community development program for health, disaster preparedness, as well as water and sanitation programs. 100% of the proceeds from the CD will go towards these programs.

The CD is currently available in music stores and Quicksilver outlets in New Zealand, as well as online through The Loop.
