Beautiful "Bayou Blue Family" bespoke pieces available on the day.
The Bayou Blue Foundation was set up in 2015 by musician and record producer, Mo Morris after his daughter Bayou Blue, was born with a rare genetic condition and given a 10% chance in making it to 12 months old. Following Bayou’s time spent in intensive care and the expenses involved in providing full time healthcare, support and therapy for his daughter, Mo decided to create a global foundation to help provide counselling and financial support to parents and children with life-threatening illnesses. By organically raising funds through the arts, creative events, fundraisers and product lines, the foundation also provides a platform for artists and creatives to get involved and promote their works whilst supporting an important cause. The charity’s unique and progressive form of fundraising includes artist-donated works, exclusive vinyl records and unisex apparel which are available to purchase at LN-CC with proceeds going directly to the Bayou Blue Foundation.
Born on 8th December 2014 to parents Mo and Adia, Bayou Blue was diagnosed with a rare condition called Trisomy 18/Mozaic. Having realised the traumatic stress as well as financial strain of health expenses and treatments for parents of children with terminal illnesses, Mo set out to actively help other families in similar situations through the creation of the charity, “it seemed like it could be the perfect vent whilst hopefully offering children and parents some love, support and funding for the difficult road that they’re embarking upon,” said Mo. The foundation aims to put in place the best counselling and support lines available for trauma and grief local to the families and children, “these lines include financial support for medical care, travel and day-to-day funding required for families who have had to leave or take time off from work to care for their children as well as providing help at home to make the child’s daily life more comfortable,” explained Mo.
The global charity not only sets out to support children and families; by fundraising through creative channels artists, musicians and designers will also gain awareness, “the foundation provides a platform for artists involved to promote their work whilst helping a beautiful cause,” explained Mo. The Bayou Blue Foundation hopes to organise creative fundraisers, live music shows and club events that will be fully funded and supported by sponsors and local government which will create streams of revenue and awareness for the Bayou Blue Family, a name coined by Mo for all those involved in supporting the charity.

Rachel House (Yayasan Rumah Rachel) provides specialised medical care (known as palliative care) to children in Indonesia living with serious and life-limiting illnesses. Established in 2006, they have pioneered palliative care in Indonesia.
Driven by the belief that no child should ever have to live or die in pain, their highly-skilled nurses provide home-based palliative care to children from some of the most marginalised communities across greater Jakarta.
They are also helping to build a palliative care ecosystem in Indonesia, by educating medical professionals and local communities with palliative care skills and knowledge, so that even more of those in desperate need can receive the care they deserve.
