From the Adafruit family to yours – Ladyada and the entire Adafruit team would like to wish you a happy Thanksgiving.
Like many out there, we will be eating food, spending time with loved ones and reflecting on all the people we are thankful for.
It’s a day to be thankful for the freedom to pursue dreams and share ideas with others. Thanksgiving is an American holiday and we’re thankful to live in such an amazing country. We will try to always make it a better place for our fellow citizens and the world, we are thankful we can take on a goal like this.
We’re thankful that many people today are helping the less fortunate in our area in NYC as we still recover from Hurricane Sandy. The capacity and desire to help others is something we’re truly thankful for. There will always be ups and down in life, we’re thankful that we can solve any problem, even with impossible odds, when we work together.
Thanksgiving is a reminder that we can all come together to do great things and make the future something we’re all proud of.
Thank you everyone out there who has supported Adafruit over the years, we’re thankful you’ve given us these opportunities.
