Ideas We Love: Reddit Arbitrary Day June 25th

Redditors from all around the world are coming together to celebrate giving. This time of year they send each other gifts for no reason other than it makes them happy! If you're unfamiliar with reddit, this reddit holiday (Arbitrary Day, June 25th) was created as a response to the overwhelming outpour of happiness and joy that was experienced during reddit first Secret Santa in 2009. Since then, Secret Santa has grown to have close to 60,000 participants and setting Guinness World Records. Here's a TEDx video where kickme444 discusses how this all happened, take a few minutes and check it out!

In a nutshell, you sign up below, answer some questions about yourself, on June 10th they'll pull names out of their computer hat and send you an email with details on who you need to send a gift to. You look at the questions they answered, pick out the best gift in the world for them, send it and when they receive it, they post a thank you note with photos and videos here on redditgifts for the whole internet to see what a great gift you sent!

Reddit is asking Arbitrary Day participants that in addition to sending their match something great, to please consider helping with a donation for a life-changing medical treatment on Watsi. Watsi's goal is to fund low-cost, high-impact medical treatments for a million people in need. Fun right? Sign up starts on May 20, ends on June 10 and gits must be shipped by June 21!
