One Midlands woman is doing what she can to hlep people still effected by the tsunami that devastated Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, and Thailand in 2004.  

Barbara Anderson sells quilts made by women in Indonesia at her restaurant, Enchanted Forest Cafe.  All the profits from the quilts go to help the women rebuild their lives after the tsunami.  Now University of South Carolina students are helping now with the project.  Vice President for the American Marketing Association at USC, Brittany Gordon says the group is developing a marketing campaign to help sell the quilts. 

"I think that as college students, we are blessed in so many ways... What this project is going to do is not just provide these women with income but also with a better life that they don't have because of the tsunami," says Gordon. 

Anderson and USC students hope they can truly help the people of Indonesia.
