Our Story

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.
