25-Year-Old Scores eBay CEO As Her Reddit Secret Santa—This Is What She Got
By Cody Briana on December 18, 2018
This is dope! If you don’t know a thing or 2 about Reddit’s annual Secret Santa, let me fill you in. The website pairs up participants from around the world to exchange gifts. Since its start in 2009, the exchange resulted in over a million presents shipped among 900,000 people in 225 countries.
It’s popularity rose when Bill Gates participated, sending thoughtful gifts and making large donations in his match’s honor. Other celebrities began joining in, including Snoop Dogg and Jimmy Fallon. This year, eBay CEO Devin Wenig entered and matched with 25-year-old Kaila Amador from Fort Drum, New York. Go figure he didn’t disappoint.
Amador received a whopping 33 packages this week, which included rare and sold out collectibles of Disney products (found on eBay), Disney swag, Disney trading pins, toys for her cats, the Monopoly for Millennials game and much more.
“I found it to be an authentic gesture,” Amador told CNBC. “I can tell he read what I put in the notes to my Santa. Most of it was me gushing over my love for Disney, and I think the gifts definitely reflected that!”
Wenig also gave Amador eBay and Stubhub gift cards and made a donation on her behalf to Kitten Rescue, a charity close to her heart. Just when you thought it couldn’t get better! She thanked him for his generosity yesterday on Twitter. “Happy holiday,” he replied. “So glad you liked it!” I’m jealous.
