Buy One, Give One with Digi-Key, Girls Who Code and Adafruit @GirlsWhoCode @digikey

Digi-Key is running a fantastic promotion alongside Adafruit and Girls Who Code.

We at Digi-Key are very excited to partner with our good friends at Adafruit and Girls Who Code… For every Adafruit Circuit Playground Digi-Key sells, we will share the love and donate a custom Digi-Key edition to Girls Who Code for their programs.

All three companies share the same passion – teaching girls about STEM and technology. “We didn’t have the term Maker in 1972, but if we had it would have described our founder and how we got started. We want to see the next generation of innovators get started.” Dave Doherty, President of Digi-Key Electronics.

“Digi-Key’s and Adafruit’s support will provide hundreds of Girls Who Code participants extended learning platforms and allow them to deepen their understanding of computational thinking and coding,” said Reshma Saujani, Founder and CEO of Girls Who Code. “We’re thrilled to be able to provide this technology to our participants and we’re excited to see what they create using it.”

One of our chief goals at Adafruit is to get more women, especially young women, more involved in engineering. To this end, we couldn’t have asked for better partners to work with for this initiative. We are so thankful for Digi-Key’s support and excited that Girls Who Code will be the recipient of these learning tools.

If you want a Circuit Playground, want to support an amazing organization like Girls Who Code, or do both, visit Digi-Key’s website and buy some Circuit Playgrounds!

 


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
