SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The family of the Salt Lake City girl who was killed in the tsunami in Thailand are returning to south Asia next week.

Kali Breisch's family says they're making the trip to figure out how the 40-thousand dollars contributed to the For Kali-dot-org Foundation will best help the Thai people.

Kali's father Stuart Breish and his wife Sally Nelson will make the trip.

Stuart said although the trip will be sad, going back is a way of giving back.

15-year-old Kali was swept away by a gigantic wave on December 26th.

Her 16-year-old brother Jai (Jay) was also caught in the tsunami but survived. Her father, his wife, and Kali's 18-year-old sister Shonti also survived the disaster.

The family was vacationing in Thailand when the disaster hit a day after Christmas.
