Donation Day - Supporting the Electronic Frontier Foundation


If there is a local company around these parts that mirrors our culture, it’s Oskar Blues Brewery. They tend to throw their money and efforts into their flavor of interests/hobbies (bicycle culture/advocacy, food, entrepreneurship, etc.). It’s an awesome and inspiring business model. Plus, they make a great brew and helped us host our soldering competition.

One venture Oskar Blues does every so often is “Makin' a Difference Mondays” - where a portion of sales for a day go to a charity/non-profit. We really liked that model of giving back - so we’re doing something similar. Today is the first-ever SparkFun “Donation Day.”

The way it works is like this: Today (5/20/2013), 10% of all SparkFun sales will be donated to a non-profit chosen through a vote by SparkFun employees. The organization we’ve chosen to be the recipient of today’s funds is the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Here’s to you, EFF.

EFF is one of the very few non-profit legal entities out there which actively fights for our rights as consumers, geeks and hackers. So if you’ve been holding off on a SparkFun purchase to wait for just the right moment, and you want to support an outstanding organization - today is the day!

We hope you join us in supporting the EFF!

  • Oskar Blues - Ten Fiddy. So delicious and readily available in New Hampshire!

  • I’m glad I saw the “pre-post” last week! I had a $300 wish list that I ordered Monday to support Sparkfun’s efforts to help EFF. (Though I did have to put in an “emergency order” on Friday to grab the last remaining Beginning Embedded Electronics kits!). Thanks for your hard work and generosity Sparkfun!

  • Just placed my work order, now it’s time to place my play order. Thank you for doing this. Sparkfun continues to rock!

  • Blast, I just ordered yesterday too…

  • Nice kilt/vest/flashes, guy in the kilt!

  • A man in a kilt is a man and a half! I give you props. I always rock mine on 4/6. The folks at work love it. Oh, and good job SparkFun!
