We are proud to announce that our third annual Parents 4 Pot Cannabis Community Holiday
Drive is going to be bigger and better than ever! Last year, we helped twenty-five families by
providing them with their holiday wishes through the generosity of the community. We raised
over $15,000 that all went directly to families for holiday lists on Amazon and in-kind donations.
This year we are hoping to help even more families and raise twice even more funding. We are
counting on the community to come through big for families who have been challenged by the
restraints and punishments created from the war on cannabis. We focus primarily on three types
of families to help with our Holiday Drive.
The first are POW children whose parents are serving time for cannabis related offenses. We
have been honored to be able to help the families left behind by our nation's archaic drug laws. It
is sad enough that these families do not get to see their moms or dads on a daily basis, but it is
paralyzing to not be able to be a part of the holidays because you are serving time for pot. Our
objectives of filling some of the gaps with gifts in the name of their parents go a long way to
making a bad situation a little better.
The second type of families we focus on are refugee families who have had to move to a
different state to receive cannabis treatments for children and family members. In some cases,
half of the family is forced to live in one state, while the rest of the family is forced to live in
states where cannabis is legal and available. Helping them with holiday gifts goes a long way to
them being able to make ends meet. It is crazy that we still live in a society that forces people to
move to different states to find safe and effective treatments.
The other types of families we look to help are members of the cannabis community who have
simply fallen upon hard times. There are people in this community who have dedicated their
lives to making the world a better place for cannabis users who have come upon difficult days.
We want to make sure to lift up and help the people who have helped the community and need a
little help to make their holidays special.
If you or your organization would like to commit funds to the drive, please email us at
email@example.com with the subject line "P4P HOLIDAY DONATION" and we will
follow-up to make arrangements. People can also PayPal money at any time to that email with
your request for it to be used for the Holiday Drive in the message area.
Once again, we thank you and are proud to be a part of such a vivacious and generous
community. We are truly humbled.
