As part of Reddit’s annual Secret Santa, which 120,650 users of the website signed up for this year, Bill Gates got his Kris Kringle on, giving one lucky Reddit user the gift of getting a gift from Gates himself. But the cherry on top was something less tangible: a  donation to the charity Malaria No More, which works toward eradicating the disease. Last year I had the opportunity to visit a friend finishing up her Peace Corps service in Zambia. Gates has been fighting Malaria through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for years so it’s not a surprise that he would be privy to how important the issue is.
Gates has participated in Reddit’s Secret Santa for the last few years, so sign up next year and, who knows, he may just grant your wish. Jenny from New Jersey won some signature pieces from Uncle Snoop including embroidered slippers, Happy Socks, Snoop Dogg herbal vaporizer, and a usb containing a personalized holiday greeting from the rapper.

For more than five years years, thousands of Redditors have participated in a Reddit Secret Santa gift exchange.
Both previous years that Gates participated, he bestowed his partners with a book and a donation to charity in their name (along with some other goodies), tailoring each selection based on information he could glean from each person’s Reddit account.


Although she writes that she loves the hiking gear Gates sent her, she loves the contribution to Malaria No More even more. I can’t wait to start seeing the other gifts that will be arriving in mailboxes around the country this month. My Secret Santa sent me Payoff Pitch Baseball with the FACs and the 1889 season set, along with a great tabletop baseball book. This was a great idea, I hope everyone benefits from it and hope we’ll see more of this in the future!
I spent a few days in her rural village with her and then we traveled around for a few weeks. While most of us received gifts from loving family members, friends and significant others, one lucky Reddit user was graced with a special present from none other than west coast rap veteran Snoop Dogg.
This year, he followed the same general format, and his gift to user NayaTheNinja ended up being incredible thoughtful. I received the 2015 English Pro League and the new International Football Legends sets for Soccer Blast. Because I prefer to talk to locals rather than spend all my time traveling with other tourists, we did a lot of chatting with people.
During Reddit‘s sixth annual Secret Santa, people from all over the country signed up to take part in the fun.


A topic that came up more frequently than one might like if they were looking to keep the conversation light and cheerful is the prevalence of malaria. Last year, Reddit broke the Guinness World Record for the largest Secret Santa gift exchange. A man I talked to in Zambia told me that it had been years since he’d had it and he was pretty stoked about that.
Someone I talked to on Zanzibar thought the USA as a whole is the best thing ever because some program (an NGO? I’m not sure) helped facilitate insecticide spraying, which brought down the malaria rates (and therefore deaths) considerably. PC volunteers I talked to shared the experiences they had with malaria when they stopped taking their anti-malarial meds and said it was really miserable even with readily available and top of the line medical care.
