A mysterious Santa Claus in Canada: a 250$ gift card and a poem distributed to hundreds of people

An envelope containing a poem and a gift card of 250 Canadian dollars: several hundred residents of Edmonton (western Canada) had a nice surprise from a mysterious Santa Claus, media say on Saturday Canadian.

 

On December 24, when I woke up, I found a very nice gift card outside my door, Edmonton resident Leigh-Ann MacNaughton told Facebook.

 

In this envelope, a voucher in the amount of 250 Canadian dollars in Walmart stores and a poem extolling the hope and the necessary solidarity in times of the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Elisha Tennant, a resident of the North Glenora neighborhood who lost her job during the pandemic, says she also cried as she opened the envelope.

 

It's so heartwarming, it's so touching that someone is doing this, she said on Friday, according to the public broadcaster CBC. Something like that, well that's a month of racing for us.

 

According to CBC, which contacted the mysterious anonymous benefactor by email, similar envelopes were sent to 400 people in the same neighborhood of this town in Alberta, a province in Western Canada.

 

I decided to do it because I know that lots of people have had a very difficult year and that I have the means to help them, explained the person behind the donations. I hope that these gifts have made people feel that the world is full of goodness and that a better future is not far away.
