We’re all about a good cause and a great story here at Stoned Girls, and when we heard all about Chris Thompson’s hard work for legalization, we had to get in on the cause.
Chris Thompson is a junior in Biological Engineering at Purdue, as well as the Executive Director of Purdue NORML. As if that’s not enough, he also sits on the Board of Directors of the Indiana NORML branch. We know what you’re thinking – Pretty accomplished for such a young dude, right? Well, you would be correct, but it gets better.
Chris was chosen to intern at the National NORML offices in Denver this summer! The only problem is, this is an unpaid internship. This means, Chris will not be compensated for his time. He will have to also come up with his living expenses on his own.
Like we said, we’re big fans of a great story, and we would hate to see Chris not be able to do some really great things for our community because he couldn’t make the internship.
What You Can Do To Help
Being the smart young man he is, Chris started a GoFundMe page, which you can find here! He is trying to raise $5,000 to fund his move to Denver so he can fight on behalf of all of us! And, anything he raises over his $5,000 goal, he is planning to donate to National NORML. What a guy!
We urge you to donate what you can, as any little bit helps. Also, Chris has let us know that a fellow unnamed NORML member has offered to match all donations from today forward. That means whatever you donate to this smart man will be doubled!
And, if we haven’t done enough to convince you to help out Chris, here he is explaining why this is so important. Check it out. You can also e-mail him directly at chrisisNORML@gmail.com with any questions, concerns, or just some kind words!
Chris, we can’t wait to see what amazing things you do for the cannabis community!
