Aside from celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, a lot of people take Christmas as an opportunity to become a blessing to people who are in need.

In East Idaho, there is a “Secret Santa” who donates hundreds of thousands of dollars to local residents in need every year since 2015.

The loving parents work multiple jobs and multiple shifts so they can provide for their family. Ben wakes up at 4:00 AM and works until 10:00 PM while Misty works a later shift until 1:00 AM.

Nate handed a gift box to the couple, and when they opened it, they found a store credit voucher for $10,000 at a furniture store.

Nate then told Misty and Ben that they have another surprise, so they took the couple and all 12 of their kids outside to see the 15-seater white van that was given to them by Secret Santa.

Secret Santa has already paid off the taxes and fees of the vehicle. The registration fee is the only part that hasn’t been paid yet but Secret Santa provided them with the registration money too, and the whole Ashley family was immensely grateful for the generous Christmas gift they received from Secret Santa.
