About The 'Tsunami Day website: Mark set-up the 'Tsunami Day' website to promote his song 'Tsunami Day' which was inspired from his own personal experiences while I was living in Patong back in 2004 when the Tsunami hit Patong on boxing day. As with 'I'm Coming Home For Christmas' the song 'Tsunami Day' also brought awareness to local Phuket Charities and children's Orphanages. On the site there is numerous ways to help including a Phuket Hotels and cheap flights to Thailand and Asia booking system. Every penny helps.
