Each year, the denizens of Reddit have the opportunity to sign up for a massive round of Secret Santa, a tradition that’s been running on the site for some time now.
Microsoft co-founder and all-round good bloke Bill Gates has also been taking part in the activity for a little while now, spoiling his recipients with all kinds of awesome stuff. This year is no different.
Redditor Aerrix recently posted to the site to let everyone know that she had won Secret Santa, which we’d say is a fair statement given the bounty she received. As per the list of gaming preferences she had signed up with, old mate Bill (or someone that works for him) sent the smorgasbord of sweet loot that was relevant to her interests.
Along with three controllers, she received an Xbox One with a personalised note. Rad.
She also got some adorable Zelda themed mittens for her and her tiny dog.
An array of books and DVD’s, a freaking photo frame in with a picture of Bill photoshopped in with her and her husband, Xbox games and a NES Classic Edition. I am just green with jealous rage right now.
But perhaps the nicest part of the gift was the donation that Billy made to Code.org in her name, an organisation that gives more students a chance to learn how to code.
“Merry Christmas to all yall out there, and to Mr. Gates, who has the biggest heart and REALLY KNOWS HOW TO TREAT A GIRL TO SOME VIDEO GAMES (and video game paraphernalia) I’m just blown away by his generosity, which went even further than all these gifts because he submitted a donation to code.org in my name to give more students the chance to learn computer science, which is AWESOME because it’s something near and dear to my heart as my husband is a programmer and my brother has a degree in computer science!”
Well done Mr Bill, you bloody nailed it.
