During the last week we have been thinking about ways we can support the Black community. Individually, we have made donations to organizations that spoke to us. As a company, we would like to ask you to consider supporting two great organizations: Black Girls Code and The Conscious Kid.
At Chibitronics, we believe in the power of both technology and storytelling and the mission of each of these organizations appealed directly to us and our values.
Black Girls Code works with young women of color between the ages of 7 and 17 to empower them in the STEM fields with the goal of increasing the number of women of color in the digital space. Donate here.
The Conscious Kid is an education, research and policy organization dedicated to reducing bias and promoting positive identity development in youth. The organization works with partners to promote access to children’s books centering underrepresented and oppressed groups. Donate here.
For the first 10 people to donate over $40, to either organization, we will send you (or someone of your choice) a STEM Starter Kit.
For the first 5 people to donate over $100, to either organization, we will send you (or someone of your choice) a Love to Code Creative Coding kit.
Forward the confirmation of your donation to ayinka at chibitronics dot com and we will contact you for your shipping information. Unfortunately we have to limit these kits to US addresses only because of shipping limitations.
