Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Adafruit!
I’m thankful for our community. All of the wonderful people who share their projects and enthusiasm and knowledge, and the terrific forum and Discord moderators who help make it all tick!
This year I undertook a leap, unlike any I have ever encountered. In person, online, and at Adafruit, I have found love, support, caring, and friendship. I am so thankful for these blessings this year, along with my loving family and dark chocolate, my old friend.
I am thankful for my home and my husband, for the family I was born into and the family I have chosen, and so grateful that every day I have the opportunity to create things and touch people all over the world.
im thankful for food and shelter.
Big ups to yoga, breathing, old friends, new friends, listening, coworkers, soldering, challenges, poetry, music, art, my body, my family, food, fruit, Adafruit, the internet, podcasts, Bandcamp, the right to vote, and having my basic needs met so I can focus on enjoying my life and my time here on Earth.
I am thankful to be able to drop into an amazing place like New York City where it always feels easy to reconnect with family and friends.
I’m thankful for the freedom to be creative.
I am overwhelmingly thankful for the indescribable beauty of the natural world.
I am thankful for Adafruit
I’m thankful for family and closest friends. I’m thankful for income, a place to live, living in nyc and health!
I am thankful to finally be back home, where me and my son are surrounded by family, friends and a whole lotta love!
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
