Parallax to Donate 5% of Memorial Day Sales to Veterans Matter

Table of Contents

Dear Parallax Community,

Businesses everywhere use Memorial Day Weekend to run sales, including Parallax. I’m not sure why it’s that way since Memorial Day is for mourning U.S. military personnel who have died while serving in the armed forces. This put my normal marketing-minded efforts on pause, as I thought about how we could make our sale meaningful.

To give context to our efforts, Parallax will donate 5% of all online sales from Friday through Monday to Veterans Matter. Veterans Matter puts homeless veterans into permanent housing. Combine the estimated 38,000 homeless veterans with the rising costs of housing, food, and fuel, and there are plenty of people who need support to get started (or restarted). The documented administrative rate of Veterans Matter is also a low 8%. We will post a copy of our donation on this page for transparency.

We have put over 70 products on sale! Click on the images above to see how we’re discounting major product categories from 10-25%. The entire list of discounted products is shown below (excluding the product bundles, which are also on permanent sale). This kind of sale doesn’t happen very often, and there won’t be another one like it all summer.

Whether you spend the day recognizing armed forces members who have died on duty, planning your summer microcontroller projects, or just enjoying the time with family or away from work, have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
