We’re filled with holiday spirit and want everyone to find the perfect gift this season, even if it’s not from us. If you can’t find what you’re looking for at Adafruit or if you need something that is out of stock, check out some of these fine folks – some are also friends and/or resellers, or folks we just admire:
And lastly, if you’re looking to give to a good cause, please consider the EFF. They’re defending digital our rights, everyday. Because of the EFF, Adafruit and companies like ours will continue to thrive. We also think Creative Commons is a good one to consider, their framework has fueled a lot of innovation and sharing. We use it, we love it, more value is happening because of it. If you give to either one, let us know on your next order, we’ll toss in a fun treat!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
