In 2013, Krickett Jones Halpern founded m.a.r.y. foundation in praise of her mother, Mary Jones, who grew up facing struggles, pain, and sorrow. Mary never had the emotional or physical support as a child to express herself or be creative. This void impacted her into her adulthood. Krickett’s hope and desire is for the m.a.r.y. foundation to present a path to the arts to build brains and positive selfhood while honoring her mom and all mothers.
The m.a.r.y. foundation is Mary’s legacy.
