Secret Santa is back and this Christmas is bigger than ever!

The EastIdahoNews.com team is busy helping a local man gift more than $500,000 this holiday season. A lot more. Secret Santa is a real person who wants to remain anonymous and hopes to help as many people as he can.

We will be surprising deserving people and families every day from now until Christmas with gifts unique to their circumstances.

Robert and Phoenix Rowley are a special couple with mounting medical bills that keep them from doing minor repairs on their home. Robert is legally blind in one eye and totally blind in the other. Every penny is budgeted and the couple does what they can to get by.

The Rowleys raise turkeys to butcher and sell farm fresh eggs to their neighbors.

Phoenix is in poor health but she is doing what she can to take care of Robert, who wishes he could buy a new suit to wear to church.

Secret Santa asked us to surprise the Rowleys with an early Christmas gift. They had no idea why we were on their porch and were stunned with their present. Watch the video above to see how it played out!
