The folks here are Adafruit 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 am thankful for finding Adafruit! It is the biggest wish I could only hope for! I am blessed everyday in being a part of the most giving, honest and thoughtful group of people there is! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

thankful my family is healthy and so thankful to be working for a company that has given incredible care to all of its employees during this pandemic!

I’m thankful for my family and the love of great friends. And delicious food!

I’m thankful for the stability I’ve been able to find this year despite all its changes. For health, happiness and the opportunities I’ve found.

It’s been a very crazy year, filled with so many things. I am thankful to be here, better, at the end of it all. I am thankful for friends and family, both natal and chosen. And, of course, to the wonderful staff at Adafruit, who have been nothing but spectacular through it all.

This year I’m thankful for friends and family, Sesame Street, my Peloton, coffee, coffee, coffee, and NYC holiday season magic.

I recently read the words of a woman who worked on the Space Shuttle program. She said “We’re a family of ordinary people who teamed up and did something extraordinary.” Like her, I’m thankful for my own found family and the extraordinary stuff we’re doing together.

This year I’m thankful for thick socks, long nights of restful sleep, early mornings drinking coffee in bed, and enough free time at home and at work to dabble in creative endeavors as my heart desires.

I am thankful for my lovely partner, my amazing friends, and all of the staff of shipping and gathering at Adafruit who all continue to make my life so great!

I am thankful for my family and friends.
I am thankful for my rights and the people who paved the way. These people fought and lost a lot so I & others that identify as LGBTQIA+ can live as our authentic selves. And because of them I was able to marry the woman I love. Something I honestly never dreamed of growing up.
