Bill Gates donated money to Heifer International for a Secret Santa gift

Reddit user Rachel, who goes by the handle NY1227, was surprised to learn that none other than the Bill Gates happened to be her Secret Santa in an online gift exchange.

Bill Gates Is Secret Santa

When Rachel first opened her gift package, she discovered a stuffed cow toy. As she continued to dig through the box, she found a certificate for the non-profit organization Heifer International, stating that a donation had been made on her behalf. The non-profit endeavors to aid families in creating food and income to survive by sending them animals and agricultural tools and seeds.

“I was so excited, the cause seemed really worthy and amazing, and it is the season of giving,” wrote Rachel. “It makes me so happy that he was able to donate to a charity on my behalf that helped people with both needs and educational benefits. Nailed it, Bill!”

In addition to the stuffed animal and philanthropic donation, Gates included a hard covered travel book for Rachel, who admittedly has a fondness for travelling. “This gift was perfect!” said the recipient.

“Bill — you ROCK (can I call you Bill?! I feel like we're friends now!),” Rachel wrote. “I am so very, very grateful for the amazing and thoughtful gift you have picked for me!”

"Ps: Sorry for the apple ipad on my wishlist, that was really awkward," she added.
