Reddit user Rachel was participating in the annual redditgifts Secret Santa gift exchange when she got a major surprise. When she opened her Secret Santa card and package it was from none other than Bill Gates!
“My god,” she writes. “Never in my entire life did I imagine, ever, ever, ever that Bill would get me (as a match). I am SO SO thankful for the time, thought and energy he put into my gift, and especially thankful for him overnighting it.”
Gates purchased Sarah a cow profit Heifer International. The donation dovetailed with Rachel’s own passion for education, because Heifer also provides money to help girls around the world go to school. Gates also gave Rachel a travel book, Journeys of a Lifetime, based on her interest in travel.
Gates has participated in reddit before, doing an AMA a few months back. Many teams at Microsoft are also fond of doing AMAs on Reddit.
Rachel also noted:
“Sorry for the apple ipad on my wishlist, that was really awkward.”
Maybe Gates can send her a Surface too. 🙂
