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

The 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.

Amanda is a newly single mom who has worked really hard to provide for her two children. She is a hard worker and is always willing to go above and beyond.

She recently saved up to buy her first home – a broken down single wide trailer that she has been working to make livable for the past few months. She goes to work from 4 a.m. – 1 p.m. then goes home to work on that house.

She has run out of money to complete her home and just walled off the bathroom. She and her kids are showering at their old apartment but the lease will be up at the end of the month. She has put all her money into the children’s rooms and living space. If you ask her, she will say she has sufficient for her needs.

Secret Santa wanted to help Amanda as she works on her new home. He sent the Secret Santa elves over with an early Christmas gift. Watch the video above to see the surprise!

If Secret Santa has inspired you to do something anonymous for someone else this holiday season, we want to hear about it! Email and tell us about your Secret Santa project.
