Parents 4 Pot Holiday Fundraiser – Do You Have $5 On It?
The holiday season is upon us. Danksgiving is just around the corner now and before you know it, it’ll be time to leave out the infused cookies for Santa so he can be elevated the whole night through. The holiday season however isn’t the happiest of times for many individuals and for some the reason is because their family has been torn apart due to the draconian war on cannabis that is still happening in many places across the country. There are thousands of parents from states across the U.S. that are spending their holidays in a prison because of cannabis.
Many of these individuals were productive, hardworking, and valued members of society and were utilizing cannabis for medicinal purposes or growing it to help others. Now they are torn from their families unable to make memories, unable to help put presents under the tree, and unable to make the holiday season all that it should be. Luckily there are cannabis angels looking out for these families in hopes of brightening their holidays as much as they possibly can. Cannabis angels such as the ones at Parents 4 Pot.
A Hempsational Fundraiser by Parents 4 Pot
Parents 4 Pot is holding their annual holiday fundraiser to help make the holidays a little more special for children and families throughout the cannabis culture including those who have parents incarcerated for cannabis charges. Whether it be helping to provide a Christmas tree and presents for the family at home or helping incarcerated parents have the ability to make a phone call to their kids on Christmas day, P4P is there to help.
Parents for Pot is a not for profit organization founded in 2013 by Mickey Martin whom unfortunately passed away this year. Mickey was a passionate activist and a respected member of the cannabis culture, community, and industry for many years before his passing. His passion and dedication to helping others within the community was unparalleled and today this same passion and dedication can be seen in the leading members of P4P that are pushing hard every day to continue his legacy and help as many families as they can, not just during the holidays but all year long.
A Voice of Change and Help When Its Needed Most
The organization is a voice for not just families who have loved ones incarcerated for cannabis but also the families that support cannabis legalization and those with children or parents who are medical cannabis patients and/or cannabis refugees. Last year the organization was able to help dozens of families during the holiday seasons thanks to donations from people just like yourself. Whether you can spare $5 or $500 every dollar helps get P4P that much closer to their goal of helping 50 families this year and they are striving for even more!
A Vision Worth Supporting
Part of the P4P vision reads as follows “We raise awareness and demand change in policy to create a new world. We hope to create a world where people are no longer treated as lesser citizens and criminals for their decision to use cannabis. Parents 4 Pot believes that cannabis is a positive choice for many families. It is no longer acceptable to use our resources to prosecute, imprison, and limit access. Cannabis is clearly a safer alternative for many.” Now this is a vision that I can support!
$5 On It
By donating just $5 this holiday season you could forever change the life of a child affected by the war on cannabis. Not just by helping them have a better holiday season but by showing them that there are people out there that care. For the price of one Starbucks coffee or a value lunch meal you could turn a frown upside down during this holiday season. Help Parents 4 Pot continue their work and pay respect to the wonderful tradition several years ago by the late founder Mickey Martin by donating to the P4P Holiday Fundraiser today. I’ve got $5 on it, do you?
