As you more than likely know, Colorado was hit hard by some intense flooding about a week and a half ago. The final toll is still being calculated, but several lives were lost and many, many millions of dollars in damage occurred. Around 2,000 homes were either completely lost or severely damaged and thousands of people have been displaced.
Boulder County, where SparkFun is located, was one of the hardest hit counties so this event certainly hit close to home, both literally and figuratively. SparkFun would like to do our part to help move the recovery forward.
So today, September 23rd, 10% of all sales will be donated to the United Way Foothills Flood Relief Fund. Additionally, friends of SparkFun and local business Elevations Credit Union will match whatever we can raise, dollar for dollar.
So if you’ve been holding off on a SparkFun purchase for just the right time - pull the trigger today. Thank you!
