Every year, an anonymous business man disguised as a “Secret Santa”, hands out $100 bills to random people. This incredible man spends around $100,000 of his own money each year doing such charity works. He doesn’t know how his donation is going to be spent, but he does not judge. That is how he came across 30-year-old Thomas Coates.
Thomas is a heroin addict from Reading, Pennsylvania who even sold off his son’s toys for drugs. He struggles with addiction and he says that he hasn’t worked in over a year because he spent all of his time getting in and out of treatment facilities. But when he met this “Secret Santa”, things didn’t look so glum. A little kindness can indeed go a long way!
This Secret Santa travels the country every holiday season passing out one hundred dollar bills to random people. Their reactions are priceless, but what he did for Coates was extra meaningful to him. Just the night before, when Coates and his girlfriend were arguing about money, she suggested he shoot a prayer up to God to ask him for help.
Coates was an atheist, but he did as she asked. The next night, he met his Secret Santa and was able to buy his son what he wanted for Christmas. Now he’s a believer and determined to get better.
