Rachel was a participant in Reddit’s online Secret Santa gift exchange and had a decent list of things she wanted this year: an iPad, “glittery things”, makeup, and nail polish. Of course, the Secret Santa excitement and surprise is built of two phases: 1) What will I actually get? 2) Who is getting it for me? Well, let’s just say Rachel got the gifts of her life along with a hilariously awkward moment. When Rachel received her package from a man named “Bill” and ripped it open, she discovered a stuffed toy cow and the book “Journeys Of A Lifetime.” A little confused, Rachel began piecing together who this “Bill” man was. The charity, the book… This is from her post on Reddit: “I thought Bill sounded like a friendly fellow. In fact, I had this whole image of this poor guy named Bill trying to navigate my wishlist full of makeup, nailpolish, glittery things to buy me. Quite frankly I felt bad for this “Bill” since I’m a self identified pain in the ass to shop for. I finally opened the card and realized that “Bill” (I use quotes, because like I said, I still didn’t realize that this was THE Bill) had donated to a charity on my behalf. The charity was/is Heifner International. I took a break from my present to research the charity a bit, and now the stuffed animal cow made sense. I was so excited, the cause seemed really worthy and amazing, and it is the season of giving. By the way, the charity “gives families in need the right tools- such as animals, seeds, clean water, safe stoves or a chance for girls to go to school.” The last part was/is my favorite, since my master’s degree is in education and I am SO into educational benefits for all. 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!” Yes, Rachel’s Secret Santa was Bill Gates. About that iPad…. CREDITS: Original story found on ABC News.
