Molly's Purpose

Who Is Molly?

Molly did not like injustice, and it showed in how she cared for others. 

Like….

  • That time she wanted to give her Easter Basket to a refugee student who didn’t get one, so she bought her one.
  • Or how she used her school performance points to buy a scooter for another student whose life circumstances prevented him from earning enough on his own.
  • When she chose a project partner in class who was always teased by others.
  • How she started a reading club on the playground so a classmate would not be alone at recess.

Taken shortly before her death at her final middle school concert, Molly loved playing the violin and participating in orchestra. Her pink violin was a signature statement of Molly’s creativity and fun loving nature.

Molly two weeks before she died. She played Gloria Rasputen in the play Bye Bye Birdie. It was her first significant role and she was so excited to finally feel like she was moving up in the theater world.

Molly’s empathy and deep connection to others was also demonstrated in her love of the arts.

She had fallen in love with theater/dance and music because she found community there. She felt safe being herself.

In her words she said “Mom, I have found my people.” She felt accepted. She felt genuinely at peace.

Molly was happy and she knew she was loved. She always wanted everyone else to feel happiness and joy as she had in her own life.

After Molly died, we started this foundation to help other children live and thrive through the arts.

We know that Molly would be so happy to see her foundation help more children have a safe place to find their voice, support each other, and build community.
