Bill Gates' Reddit Secret Santa Gifts Include a Loki Helmet

Bill Gates played Secret Santa on Reddit for a second year and gave one user, Calid 7, a once in a lifetime thrill that only the man on top of the Forbes 400 list can give.

Microsoft's co-founder also took care of a couple of items on Calid 7's Christmas list, sending her the giant helmet worn by Tom Hiddleston's Loki in "Thor" and "Marvel's The Avengers," along with a photobook of Africa, according to E! News. Calid 7 said she received her gifts from Gates in the mail, which sent her into freak out mode.

"I cannot believe it. I am literally shaking right now I AM IN SHOCK (someone get me a blanket!)," Calid 7 posted on RedditGifts.com with a photo of the gifts and a note sent to her by Gates.

"The amazing human being Bill Gates sent me a Loki Helmet which I have been dying to own ever since the first 'Thor' movie came out!! He read my 'pie in the sky wish' that I filled out in my questionnaire and fulfilled it! I also got an amazing coffee table book of gorgeous pictures of Africa (somewhere I desperately want to go, it's on my bucket list!) with an inscription and a Giant microbes polio virus stuffed animal!"

Calid 7 wrote that Gates also made a donation in her name to Shot@Life, which gives free vaccinations for children in underdeveloped countries around the world.

"I always donate what I can for charities, which is never much 'cause money is always extremely tight, it really makes me glow," Calid 7 wrote on RedditGifts.com. "I will have to post pictures tomorrow I'm too shaky right now to take any good pictures."

E! News reported that Gates sent a stuffed cow and made a donation in the name of a Reddit user to Heifer International last year as his Secret Santa gift. Heifer provides animals to families in poor countries as a source of food and reliable income, which can be traded and sold at market, according to its website.
