Woman Discovers her Secret Santa is Billionaire Bill Gates


A woman has gone viral after working out that her Secret Santa at work is billionaire Bill Gates.

35-year-old Shelby had previously made a joke about Gates being her Secret Santa, on Reddit. She wrote:

“I’m full-force in my getting-ready-for-bed routine. I check my phone one last time and I spy an email alert informing me that my RedditGifts Secret Santa package has shipped!

“I log in and am a bit taken aback that the package is being FedEx overnighted – sounds expensive. I also noticed that it was being shipped from Washington state, and as a seasoned RedditGifter, I remark to my husband, ‘Huh, wouldn’t it be something if my Santa was Bill Gates?'”

When Shelby went to collect her gift, the clerk said:

“OH MY GOD! You’re the BILL GATES package!!!!!! We’ve been waiting for you all day. Is this really from Bill Gates, or is it a hoax? Grab a cart because you’re going to need it.”

The billionaire had even written a note among the 81lbs of presents:

“Wow, I’m impressed that this is your 95th Reddit gift exchange! You seem like a very generous person, and I hope my gift makes you smile this Christmas.

“I’ve included some fun things to enjoy both at home and outdoors – plus a couple of great books I think you’ll like.

“At the same time, I know no gift will ever make up for losing someone so important to you. I was very sorry to hear about your mom, and I’ve made a donation to the American Heart Association in her memory. I hope you and your family find your ‘new normal’ this holiday season.”
