Bill Gates was Secret Santa

Written by Nick Farrell



Takes part in Reddit event

Microsoft supremo and sworn enemy of the mosquito, Bill Gates was outted as a secret santa on Reddit. Served up by the folks at Reddit, Redditgifts is an online gift exchange where people become Secret Santas by exchanging presents with friends and strangers around the world.

Rachel unwrapped the gifts from her Secret Santa to discover a stuffed animal that she added to her teddy bear collection and a National Geographic coffee table book entitled "Journeys of a Lifetime." Also in the package was a donation to Heifer International made on Rachel's behalf, a gift that she said nailed it since the organisation tries to offer an education and other benefits to people in need.

She found the true identity of Rachel's Secret Santa when she found a photo of Gates holding the stuffed animal and the signed donation sent to Heifer International.

An inscription in the book with a "really nice message" and note from Gates wishing Rachel a Merry Christmas and a Happy Birthday was the topper. Writing in her post she said that never in her entire life did she ever imagine, ever, ever, ever that Bill would get me.

“I am so so thankful for the time, thought ,and energy he put into my gift, and especially thankful for him over-nighting it."
