Parents 4 Pot Holiday Drive...That’s a Wrap - With a Bow!

By, Jill Hitchman-Osborne

Submissions for the Parents 4 Pot holiday drive kept rolling in from all aspects of the cannabis

world. Board members all started wringing our hands. Can we really double the number of families

that we helped last year?

The answer was a resounding, “YES!” We cried out, and the community stepped up big time! Thank

you to everyone that donated! Every single donation mattered. And, we couldn't be more grateful as

an organization to be able to facilitate this.

We would like to share some of the "thank yous" we received, because the gratitude really belongs

to you.

From the Lamphier family:

"Just before Christmas, I dug through my closet, pulling out the few things that I had been able to

get for my boys. As I laid them out on my bed, I felt compelled to put faith in your people. I wrapped

up every thing I had gotten for my two boys, and I called a friend who had just told me that she was

not going to be able to do anything for her kids for Christmas. I told her that I was dropping off

some presents for her kids. She broke down on the phone with me. The compassion I gave to my

friend was returned to me tenfold by P4P, and by many giving strangers.

The boxes started arriving from Amazon. The tears were turned to happy tears. What P4P gave to

my children this year was so much more than you can even understand. I was able to feel secure in

knowing that this would be a year they would remember in a positive way. Not a Christmas they

would remember when their Mama was sad.

I sat in my parent's living room on Christmas morning, after they had opened their gifts and I felt

humbled. I can truly say that by giving to another from nothing but pure love, I was given even

bigger love back from the Universe, through YOU!!!! My friend's children had a Christmas they

would have never gotten, and my boys had an incredible Christmas thanks to P4P.”

From the Holt family:

“I just wanted to send a thank you to all of you. This year you did more than sponsor my family. You

gave us a Christmas we will never forget. I can't express what it means to me to be able to give my

kids an amazing Christmas. The love and compassion you organization showed us boost our spirits

and helped restore some of our hope in humanity. I am in awe of the generosity we received. I

included a few pictures of our Christmas. Thank you for surrounding our family with love and

helping us create beautiful memories. Every day with Maddie is precious. Every day we know she is

defying the odds and continuing to do what no one ever thought she would. Live. Cannabis brought

Maddie back to life, and the cannafamily we have gained is bringing me back to life.
