Update: From the customer!
“I love adafruit, and point out to my daughters that I order cool stuff from adafruit because it’s a woman owned business, and Limor demonstrably shows that its OK to be in tech, be yourself (and have cool hair), although I’m partial to mohawks. Lol.
You guys are freakin’ awesome! I purchased items for my tortoise tracker (yes… really… he escaped and managed to scuttle a mile away or so, while I was like 3d printing, LoRa and GPS for the win!). The fact that I happened to be the lucky customer makes it just that much more awesome.
Thank you so much, and thank you for being an amazing company and a true inspiration” – Old dude with a mohawk.
The first order since we started counting orders this way was placed on October 12th, 2005 for a x0xb0x. Thank you everyone in the community for all the support, everyone here at Adafruit is here because of our community, we do not have loans or venture capital, we are a 100% woman owned, open-source hardware company, manufacturing in NYC, Adafruit exists because of all you. Special thanks to Daigo today as well, good timing. It also happens to be #InternationWomensDay today. And it looks like our CFO Stella guessed what day we’d hit the milestone within 24 hours AGAIN.
Thank you! Ladyada and the entire team at Adafruit.
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
