I have asked readers on multiple occasions to support Students for Sensible Drug Policy’s (SSDP) crowd funding campaign. Students for Sensible Drug Policy lost some of their funding recently, and has been pursuing the crowd funding campaign in order to make up the difference. In the last couple of days some businesses from Colorado announced that they were willing to match up to a $10,000 donation if the crowd funding campaign got up to $90,000.
I just looked at the funding page, and it looks like the crowd funding campaign reached $90,915! Add the $10,000 match and Students for Sensible Drug Policy has reached it’s funding goal! I can’t say enough that this is one of the greatest organizations on the planet, and SSDP has been (and will continue to!) fighting for reform on a level that many other organizations could only dream of. There were times when things dire for SSDP’s future, but thanks to generous people, SSDP will be around to fight hard in 2014!
Below is more information about SSDP from their crowdfunding page. SSDP still needs any and all donations it can get, and I can assure you, any money that they receive will be put to great use. They have always done more with less:
Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) mobilizes and empowers young people to participate in the political process, pushing for sensible policies to achieve a safer and more just future, while fighting back against counterproductive Drug War policies, particularly those that harm students and youth.
The funds we raise in this campaign will be used to support students on campuses across the United States and around the globe. Our full-time staff in Washington, DC works every day to provide students with the resources they need to develop and maintain quality chapters of student activists on their campuses. We want to maintain and grow our movement, and we want you to be a part of our success.
When you give to us, we will give tools to you or to students that assist in speaking truth to power and fighting back against the Drug War. Check out our unique perks on the right of the screen and select whichever giving level you are most comfortable with. Plus, we’ll list your name in our massive end of campaign shout out (unless you prefer to remain anonymous). There is no amount too small to make a difference.
