They come in $100, $50, $20 and $1 amounts. Send one now, give the gift of electronics this holiday season!
If you’re looking to give to a good cause, please consider the EFF. They’re defending our digital 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!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
