Day 65: Solidarity sent from Toledo #107days

Day 65 of #107days was adopted by Mark Sherry, an Associate Professor at the University of Toledo in Ohio. This is what Mark had to say about getting involved:

I heard about LB’s death from Hannah Morgan in the UK.

It broke my heart.

I thought of his Mum Sara and I wanted to do something…

This is SO wrong.

I told my students about it, and asked them to take these photos.

They are a great bunch of people.

We may be thousands of miles away, but we are with you in solidarity.

RIP Connor

Mark, his students, their family, friends and community members all got involved to share their solidarity with #JusticeforLB and made the following video

It is humbling to see the ripples of #JusticeforLB and the #107days campaign reach so far, and touch so many people’s lives. We are truly grateful to our friends in Toledo for taking the time to share their support. Thank you.

Day 63: An EP for LB #107days

Day 63 was adopted by Adam, a colleague of Sara’s. This is what he had to say about getting involved and supporting #107days and #JusticeforLB.

We decided to dust off our instruments and create these versions of some of Connor’s favourite songs to raise some money and awareness for the campaign, but also to celebrate the life (and good musical taste!), of one cool dude.

When I first met Connor it was at a wedding. He immediately made it very clear that he wanted two things from the day… to chat up girls

And to get some Ice cream.

A cool dude indeed.

EP for LB

Adam got together with his friend Marc, to produce something we think you’ll agree is rather special in LB’s memory. Adam and Marc recorded a covers EP featuring four of LB’s favourite tracks: National Express by Divine Comedy (of course), Dexy’s midnight runners by Geno, Here comes the sun by The Beetles, and Feel good inc by Gorillaz. Also included on the EP is the See Me! track recorded by First Note on Day 26 of #107days.

If you click on the tracks above you can go listen to the track and watch the awesome accompanying videos that Adam put together on YouTube – they are well worth a watch having been compiled with more photos of LB and also of some of the activity of the #107days campaign so far. Even more excitingly the EP is live on iTunes and available to purchase for the paltry sum of 79p per track or £3.95 for the entire thing, all profits to LB’s Fighting Fund, so please do get downloading and sharing.
