Happy Thanksgiving – Thank you from Adafruit #thanksgiving @adafruit
Happy Thanksgiving –
“Be present in all things and thankful for all things.” – Maya Angelou
Nothing is more urgent today than giving thanks, thank you Adafruit; employees, team members around the world, the community, the customers, the partners. Thank you for giving us the ability to help our team, and help with what they care about the most. Thank you for supporting what we do here together at Adafruit, sharing, working hard, working smart, being excellent to each other.
We are thankful we can build a better world together.
Thank you everyone who gives us a daily gift, the opportunity to help, to empower, and to elevate each other.
In closing, we sent out an email to our team, to anonymously send in anything they are thankful for, whoever sent this in, thank you:
I’m grateful to be part of a company that is public in its support for a greater diversity of people making things. There are too many gatekeepers in this life, I’m thankful that we are gate openers.
Thank you for inspiring us to be a good company, with good values.

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
