Dimes for Down syndrome by Judy Adams

Our mission is to collect one million dimes to use towards making a change in the lives of those remarkable individuals living with Down Syndrome

Dimes for Downs started ten years ago when Judy was just twelve years old. When Judy's mother Kim found herself upset and unable to grant a wish due to short funds, Judy wanted to help. She brainstormed that day and Dimes for Downs was born. Now, at the age of 22, Judy has continued to dedicate her life to collecting dimes and helping others. With a goal of one million dimes Judy is working to grant more wishes and needs for individuals living with down syndrome.


The Johnson Family & Everyone at Toms Repair Shop were so excited to present Judy, founder of Dimes for Down syndrome by Judy Adams a check for our “Count Down To World Down syndrome Day Fundrasier” in March!!! Thank you to everyone who stopped in and donated!! All donations were matched as well as our tire portion!! We are so happy to watch all that Judy has been able to achieve! We love you Judy! You can do anything💛💙

We are excited to announce, that Keila Dawson, Author is publishing a book of poems, telling the stories about 14 young contemporary American activists and included will be Judy Molly about her mission to collect ONE MILLION dimes, to help others with Down syndrome! We are very excited about the book and are looking forward to seeing it in print in the fall of 2020. :) Thank you Keila Dawson for featuring and sharing Judy's story!


So, Judy shared last week that she would love to be the Vice President of her choir.....there are about 80 kids if I had to guess in the group! I told her that it was a lot of responsibility and that maybe she should try and share the position with someone else and be a Co Vice President. I have to say.....Judy Molly you amaze me each and every day!
Judy got in the car this afternoon and shares, that they had the election and she was elected Vice President #2 and has a Co chair role with another student! Can I tell you.....that she is so excited she can hardly contain it.....she came down from her room with a small computer bag as her new brief case! :) We are in for a really fun and busy next year! So proud of you Judy!

Judy has always wanted to have a solo in choir.....but the choir director found a spot that she would be able to shine and I am so grateful that I was able to video it correctly this evening as they repeated the song at the 5th grade concert this evening....Thank you Nicole Foti for allowing Judy the chance to have the experience of speaking on stage and finding a place that she could succeed! It was a great song and so very well done!


Yesterday at noon I went to the post office to find a card inviting me to a student recognition program, stating that Judy was being recognized by one of the high school staff members for an achievement. You could have blown me over......so off we went with excitement :) Only to come home and have my sister ask what she wore......showing her the pictures she shares with me that I sent her in a swim suite cover up! LOL....I think I am the only one that would do something like that LOL! Thank you Marianne Wilson for the recognition and to Nancy Waddell and the staff at New Paltz High School for your support in helping Judy to achieve her dreams.

Last week while in Brooklyn attending a photo shoot with Marisel Rod....for your project "Women in the City" a gentleman ran up to Judy Molly as if he knew her and was so excited to meet her! Upon speaking with him we learned that he is the author of a book called "Just Read It" and is here from Dubai promoting it. What an honor it was to meet you Omar! The book is the best! You can purchase it on Amazon! I read it in just a few hours....and had downloaded it but am going to purchase it in hard copy...it was so good! Safe travels Omar!
