Bill Gates

The Best (or Worst)

Secret Santa Ever

One incredibly lucky Redditor landed muliti-billionaire Bill Gates as her secret Santa -- and his gift was amazing--ly horrible ... at least by super-rich standards.

It's the thought that counts ... doesn't count with billionaires.

If he have a physical gift, someone would just sell it on Ebay. That charity is a great organization, and he's setting an example by making a donation, which is far more in the spirit of the holiday than 24 hour shopping at Macys. Go Bill!

i beleive secret santa has rules, in the larger world of reddit or ?? website would do a gift exchange amongst members there will probably be a maximum amount to spend on any one individual regardless of the givers income and if theyre arent specific rules then the tradition is not to be outlandish which is also why it was so funny when michael bought the ipod for the party one year on the office.

I can't stand Bill Gates. He is so far up Obama's ass that you can only see his feet.

Yeah, TMZ, it really is horrible that he is helping out people in poverty in third-world countries.

Ummm, the gifts were given with great thought...a book about travels because she enjoys traveling, and hundreds of dollars to buy a cow through Heifer Intl.... In her name. That's what Reddit is about. You guys are as shallow as they come.

Truly appropriate Secret Santa response.
The $ response was fully within/beyond the limits of her purse, and is a re minder to all of us what is truly important is the recognition that there are people who need help.
