This time of year is full of secret santas at holiday parties, but what if your secret santa was a billionaire?

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates decided to share the wealth, literally, this holiday season by participating in Reddit’s Secret Santa Exchange, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Gates was matched up with user NY1227, known as Rachel, who was not expecting the memorable gift.

Gates reportedly shipped Rachel a seven-pound box with a travel book, stuffed cow, a card noting a donation to Heifer International in Rachel’s name and a signed holiday card of him holding the gifts.

Rachel says she didn’t recognize Gates at first, as reported by the LA Times, but is now sending a huge ‘thank you’ out to him.

The note did not indicate how much Gates donated to the charity, which works to end hunger and poverty, but Rachel was sure to give him a 10 out of 10 for his gift-giving skills.
