Canada: Mysterious Santa Claus surprises the city with gifts of money

A mysterious anonymous Santa Claus surprised hundreds of Canadian citizens with generous gifts of money and poems. “When I woke up this morning, I found a very large gift card on my doorstep. Apparently my entire neighborhood got one, too, “Leigh-Ann MacNaughton of Edmonton wrote on her Facebook page about a photo that showed a poem of hope and solidarity:” I cried all morning. “

According to reports in the local media, around 400 residents of the city received envelopes with a shopping voucher worth 250 Canadian dollars (160 euros) on Christmas Eve. Elisha Tennant, who lost her job in the wake of the corona pandemic, told CBC that she too had tears because of the generous gift. “It’s so heartwarming and touching that someone should do something like this,” she said. “For us that means one month’s purchases.”

CBC contacted the sender of the gifts by email. “I did this because I know a lot of people have had a really tough year and because I could afford to help out,” replied the anonymous benefactor. “I hope the gifts made people feel that the world is good and that there is a better future not too far away.”
