Jon, As a reddit employee who runs a division largely focused around Christmas, I just want to thank you for Elf. It helps us through late nights around the holidays. I especially think you nailed the soundtrack on that movie!

You may have even inspired our elf plush!

I just delivered a baby and now my husband is answering questions on reddit instead of taking care of his new baby, AMA.

I live in alameda, California and we are in a really bad crisis regarding our schools. It came out last week that half of our schools might be closing. I have two small children in school and am trying to figure out how I could help the schools in a way bigger than just a personal donation.

I have 2 questions:

  1. Do you have any suggestions for what I could do to help.

  2. I run a big community here on reddit where we do the worlds biggest secret Santa (over 4000 people in 54 countries last year). Could you somehow set something special up that our community of do-gooders could help out a select number of alameda classrooms or something along these lines?

Maybe I'm grasping at straws here but I feel I'm right around the corner from needing to move to a different state.

You were my smoking idol for so long (I quit also). Has quitting helped/hurt your love of food?

I do believe this was a redditor graphing the donations. I will not name names.
