Rachel (NY1227) joined in reddit's annual Secret Santa exchange, and received a really nice box in the mail. As she opened it and looked through the gifts, she saw it was from a redditor named Bill. The box contained several items, and it wasn't until she reached the very last item that she figured out who "Bill" was.
Once again, To me, From Bill. I opened this and it's a man holding a sign. Oh....
and then it finally hit me. All the presents I just tore open, the charity, then everything-- was from Bill GATES. I quickly went back to the book to see a really nice message and note from Bill wishing me a Merry Christmas and a Happy Birthday (not pictured, because I really want to keep one part of this gift to myself) my jaw hit the EVER LOVING FLOOR. I went back to all the other gifts completely shocked. Then I paused for a minute and thought, what if this is someone screwing with me. Well of course Mr. Bill Gates already thought of this and took a picture of himself with my stuffed animal and a sign and then sent me the stuffed animal and sign.
My god. Never in my entire life did I imagine, ever, ever, ever that Bill would get me. I am SO SO thankful for the time, thought and energy he put into my gift, and especially thankful for him over nighting it :)
So what else did he send? You should read that story as Rachel tells it. It's a nice story. Especially the part where she had asked for an iPad.
