Bill Gates participated in redditGifts, an online Secret Santa gift exchange. This year, winner Megan Cummins received a large gift box the size of a refrigerator, reported CNBC.

The billionaire has participated in the exchange for five years.

"I've done the Reddit gift exchange for years now. I love all the silly little gifts. I always check out the Bill Gates post and laugh at how crazy it must have been for that person, never for a second even considering it a possibility for me," Cummins wrote about getting a gift from the second richest person in the world, according to CNBC.

She said she did not understand the gifts at first.

"Then I just caught fragments of the letter all at once—'a donation has been made,' 'Bill Gates,' and my cats' names," Cummins said, according to CNBC. "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. Cats are my thing, my life force, my happiness."

"The best part? Well, second to my donations and gigantic Pusheen, knowing that at some point during my work week, 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," she said in the CNBC report.

Cummins posted a video with the contents of the gift box.

"I admit that I did start to cry," she said in the video.

Gates has been known for his charitable efforts. In August, a Securities and Exchange Commission filing noted that he donated $4.6 billion in shares of Microsoft stock to charity.
