"Bill Gates, you are a blessing. This year has been a complete roller coaster of emotions for me; in March, I lost my mother completely unexpectedly only 10 days before my destination wedding ..." she shared in her post.
However, the most thoughtful gift was a donation the billionaire made to the American Heart Association in honor of Shelby's mother.
"Your donation to The American Heart Association in my mom’s memory is the most special gift of all. It means more to me than I can express."
Gates has participated in the RedditGifts’ Secret Santa exchange for many years since 2013.
