By pledging $3 a month you are helping me make more portraits. The price of a single cup of (good) coffee allows me to reach out to more grieving families and help them come together to honor their loved one's memory through a custom memorial word portrait.

About Not Just a Number: Memorial word portraits by Leslie Murphy

Goals
$248.71 of $600 per month
If I can reach $600 per month I can ship original artwork to each participant. Currently, families who participate only receive a high resolution digital image to print and share, but I would love to send them original artwork. It also would be wonderful to be paid for the hours it takes to make each portrait. Black and white portraits take about 10 hours to make. Color portraits take about 20 hours to make. I would love to make these pro-bono portraits more sustainable and to reach more families in return.
