Parents 4 Pot Holiday Fundraiser
It’s that time of the year again when Parents 4 Pot is raising funds for the little victims of the war on us, the kids. For the past six years, Parents 4 Pot has helped make Christmas a little more Christmas miracle like for those facing hardships during some of the hardest times in their life. The fundraiser doesn’t start until November 30, but you can never be too early to early to start thinking about the kids and ways you can help fight prohibition. I reached out to Anna Diaz, on the board of directors, and received the pitch that will be published once they’re ready to release the list of recipients. Please consider this group while your enjoying freedom, Turkey, and cannabis during this Thanksgiving.
We Need Your Support for the Sixth Annual Parents 4 Pot POW and Cannabis Community Holiday Drive.
Help Us Help Those Affected by Cannabis Prohibition.
We are incredibly excited to announce our sixth annual Parents 4 Pot POW and Cannabis Community Holiday Drive. Our Holiday Drive is an amazing opportunity to bring joy and happiness to those who have suffered greatly at the hands of cannabis prohibition. This year we have expanded our reach and plan to provide a great Christmas for over fifty families in need.
WE NEED YOU TO STEP UP AND HELP US MAKE THIS A REALITY.
Please consider making a substantial donation to this worthy cause.
How Can You Help?
We are glad you asked! On our website, we have created a Holiday Drive page where you will find a list of the many families we are helping this year. For each family, you will find a short summary of their situation, and why we are supporting them. Your donations will go directly to these families. If there is a specific family you would like to support, please list their name with your donation. We will make sure it gets to the family you choose.
Just send your donation to firstname.lastname@example.org through PayPal, and we will make sure it is fairly distributed among the families. Click on “Send Money” and enter our email address, and select “Send Money to Friends and Family.” In the area where it says, “Write a note” just put “Holiday Drive” or specify a family you want to help. Enter the amount you would like to donate and click, “Continue” and then, “Send Money Now.” When we receive your donation, we will add it to the Holiday Drive effort.
If you cannot do PayPal and would like to arrange for a donation by cash, please email us at email@example.com with your contact information and one of our Board members will contact you to make those arrangements. You can mail a check or money order to us at Parents 4 Pot, 12042 SE Sunnyside Rd, #222, Clackamas, OR 97015.
The Families We Serve
The families we have chosen are all families who have suffered greatly from our Nation’s war on cannabis freedom. A number of the families are POWs who are currently serving time for cannabis-related crimes, who do not have the means to give their kids a great holiday. We provide a meaningful Christmas by hooking these kids up with gifts that they have asked for with a note about how their parents are heroes and not criminals. It is an amazing feeling to be able to support a prisoner who has been unjustly convicted by putting a smile on their kids’ faces for the holidays. One of the prisoners we have supported is Luke Scarmazzo who is serving over twenty years for operating a dispensary in California. Last year after making Christmas special for his daughter, Jasmine, we received the following message:
“Thank you. Really, thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything. Jasmine also wants to thank them and she coming up with some pictures and cards she wants to send out. P4P really made this year special for her. I really cannot express what it means to me. Jasmine is my world and for her to be happy and cared for in such a way was truly a blessing. Please let Parents 4 Pot know that I am in their debt and they forever have a friend in me… Regards, Luke”
We also help medical cannabis refugee families who have had to uproot and sometimes split up their families to access medical cannabis in another state. This is often a real financial burden for families, and by providing support to them during the holidays we can help minimize the struggle for them. It is unthinkable that we still live in a society where this happens, but it is all too true for many. We are glad to be able to help families who are in need due to this unfortunate reality.
We also provide support to cannabis activists and advocates who have come upon hard times. Tragedy can strike any of us at any time, and there are a lot of great families who need our support. It is an honor to be able to give back to members of this community.
Parents 4 Pot is dedicated to helping families who are suffering due to the injustices of cannabis prohibition. Through the support of folks like you, we can continue to help those in need. We can continue to provide education to help create a broader understanding about cannabis and families in our society. It is long overdue that we end cannabis prohibition. It is time to quit destroying families by imprisoning people for cannabis. We need to stop treating cannabis users like second-class citizens. We are eternally grateful to those who continue to support our mission and vision. We are asking you to give generously to this year’s holiday drive.. We appreciate your kindness and support. Together we really can make a difference in the lives of those affected by cannabis prohibition. Together we can end this battle once and for all.
