We’d like to thank each and every one of our customers, they fuel us, inspire us and help us.
Without you there isn’t an Adafruit.
We’re thankful that we have the best employees and staff in the world helping us on this journey. Our team at Adafruit is simply amazing, we’re thankful for having such a grew crew.
We’d like to thank our readers of this site, forums and everywhere else – your contributions and comments makes this fun every single day.
We’d like to thank our weekly participants on “Ask an Engineer” – we’re glad this experiment turned out to be a useful resource for so many people. We’d like to thank everyone who shares their projects with us, and the world on our new “Show-and-Tell” live video chat.
We’d like to thank the open source software community, without them – none of us would be here. We’re thankful for the open source hardware community for showing that it’s possible to not only give everything away, but to also create cool companies and products.
We’re thankful for our friends and families that understand we’ve picked an odd thing to do for a living, it takes all of our time and passion, we’re thankful they are patient with us. We’re thankful for the opportunity we all have, right now, to make the world a better place through science and engineering. We’re thankful for our partners, suppliers and resellers for upholding the values and standards we try to celebrate.
We’re thankful for being able to do what we love every day and never needing to call it “work”.

I think many of us are grateful for the community you have engendered and the shining example of generosity and of what is possible in the maker culture. We’re all the better for it. Thank you.
Thanks for a nice post and you’re welcome.
I am thankful that I at least have my health and found adafruit.com.
I’m an unemployed Electrical Engineer and can not get job interviews so I started to write-off electronic work altogether. The electronic job market here in Cleveland is rather bleak for me. This is more of a blue collar town.
But then I came across adafruit.com and I have renewed faith in the possibility to find work in what I love to do, which is learn, design, and build new things in electronics.
The electronic kits and open source community seems promising and I hope that I can contribute at any level, as an employee for someone or with my own small business and offer cool new gadgets.
Many many many thanks to you ladyada!

When did you get your first staff member? That must have been a huge milestone for you.
hi @frank – we’ve had staff, either part-time or working with us since 2005 in some way 🙂
