Shelby / Bill Gates
Every year, the social news portal Reddit follows a sweet New Year's tradition – holds the "Secret Santa" campaign, the essence of which is to give gifts to each other anonymously. Both ordinary users of the site take part in it (last year, by the way, there were more than 200 thousand of them), as well as large brands, as well as many celebrities.
This year, a 33-year-old American named Shelby was especially lucky – she received a gift from one of the richest people on the planet, entrepreneur Bill Gates. The former largest shareholder of Microsoft made a real surprise for a resident of Detroit – he sent her a gift weighing 36 kilograms. The package turned out to be so large that it couldn’t get into the girl’s car – all in all was 41 surprise with the attached note from Bill Gates and his photo.
The girl was so impressed with the gift from the billionaire that she shot a series of videos in which she shared her joy with other users of the site, thanked her secret Santa, and also showed the contents of the holiday package.
Previously, Gates thoroughly studied the girl's social networks to find out exactly what she likes. Thus, Shelby received several books, Lego designers, toys for her cat, clothes and souvenirs for fans as a giftStar wars"(Star Wars),"Harry potter"(Harry Potter) and TV series"Twin peaks"(Twin Peaks), lots of sweets and other sweets.
At the same time, the most expensive gift for Shelby was the donation of a billionaire to the non-profit organization American Heart Association. Gates found out that in March of this year, just ten days before Shelby’s wedding, she lost her mother — the woman died suddenly after a heart attack. The billionaire not only contributed an impressive amount to the fund, but also expressed his sincere condolences to the Detroit resident.
