We would like to wish each and every one of you a Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you for your support this year and thank you for being a part of our community – Adafruit exists because of all of you!

To celebrate Thanksgiving this year we wanted to focus on all that we’re thankful for, so we asked our team to share! You can see their responses below.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Adafruit!

I’m thankful for all my loved ones being healthy.
I’m thankful for my soon to be wife, she keeps me going every day and
inspires me to be better today than I was yesterday.
I’m thankful for Adafruit and being part of a work community that
cares about each other.

I am thankful for my beautiful home where I can stay safe, and for my friends, co-workers and family members who have supported me through this crazy year.

After a pipe burst in my apartment, suddenly depriving me of all plumbing for two days, I’m newly and profoundly thankful for access to the clean, running water of the Hudson valley.

I am thankful for the beauty of our children, the strength of our democratic institutions, our commitment to the rule of law, and the proliferation of modern medicine.

I’m grateful to have a wonderful partner at my side through this difficult year. I’m grateful to everyone who shows through their words and actions that we can strive for a better future.

I am thankful to be getting through another crazy year (crazier than usual) with great health, this company and my best friends and family. I am thankful for the amazing support and loyalty that I have received from the main people at my side when things got rough.

I’m thankful for sweater weather, Billy Wilder movies, my family, my health, coffee of all sorts, and hot showers after long days.

I am thankful for the love and support of my children, friends and family. And the unwavering support of my partner.

i’m grateful for the folks on my team, a roof over my head, and a refrigerator with food in it.

I’m grateful during the time of a pandemic where many lost their jobs. I was blessed to keep mine and help provide for family members who lost theirs
