You either love or hate the Secret Santa game. It’s a well-known game where you are assigned to give your co-worker (or a random person on social media) a gift for Christmas without them knowing who gave them the present. When Reddit user VietteLLC received the gift of her lifetime, little did she know that her Secret Santa was actually Microsoft founder Bill Gates! The cat enthusiast received a giant plush Pusheen toy and a photo of Bill with it and his card on Wednesday morning, December the 20th. Suffice to say, she was absolutely thrilled!
For those who are not aware, the 62-year-old software mogul Bill Gates is a regular participant in Reddit’s annual Secret Santa exchange. He sends beautiful presents to random people each year and this holiday season, it was VietteLLC’s turn.
“The best part?” VietteLLC, whose real name is Megan Cummins, wrote on Reddit after unboxing the delivery. “Knowing that at some point during my workweek, I was drinking coffee, writing a boring email, and Bill Gates was somewhere having a professional photo taken with a jumbo Pusheen and writing me notes about cats.”
Do you secretly wish for Bill Gates to be your Secret Santa next year? I know I am dying for it!
“I’ve done the Reddit gift exchange for years now. I love all the silly little gifts,” Megan wrote on the social-news aggregator.
The present came with a personalized card and a photo to prove the legitimacy of the gift.
“I always check out the Bill Gates post and laugh… never for a second even considering it a possibility for me.”
The lucky Reddit user continued: “A commissioned, one-of-a-kind cross-stitch of Me and my pal, Bill, and my 4 cats…”
The gift also included “A $250 donation to The FFRC, a $250 donation to The Stray Cat Alliance, a $250 donation to Town Cats…”
There is hardly a better present for a cat-lover who truly cares about animal welfare.
“My life goal is to fully fund a no-kill cat shelter one day and reform the U.S. shelter system to be entirely no-kill,” Megan reveals.
She says that she will probably die holding this cuddly Pusheen at 90
Also, the best part for her was Bill Gates investing the time and effort to do this
He even took a professional photo with the cat!
