When I finished the original I Am More portraits in January of 2018, they were so well-received that I decided to keep going, and expand the project to the rest of the state. I’m finishing up the last of 20 new portraits called I Am More: Massachusetts, which includes subjects from Cape Ann, to Boston, to Cape Cod, to Amherst and everywhere in between, talking about opioid addiction, cancer, postpartum depression, surviving the Holocaust, learning disorders, bullying, suicide, sexual abuse and more. Brave individuals who are sharing their voices to help others – you may recognize someone:
It’s been 19 months of drawing, traveling, meetings, fundraising, editing, and outreach.
So far I’ve raised $24,200 of my goal of $40K to pay for these portraits and exhibits, so I have $15,800 left to raise to make it to my goal and bring these to the public.
Here’s where you can help!
I’ve written a blog post explaining I Am More: Massachusetts with links to all of the portraits and the amount I need to raise. Ocean Alliance (our fiscal sponsor) has added I Am More to their donation page so that people can easily make a tax-deductible donation to the project. If you would consider sharing the link on Facebook that would be incredibly helpful: https://amykerrdraws.org/2019/09/04/help-bring-i-am-more-massachusetts-to-the-public/
All of the info and instructions are in the blog so all you would need to do is share the link, and if you’d like to add a few words about what the project has meant to you, feel free.
Thank you so much for helping get these faces and voices out there!!
