鈥楾is the season of聽giving, and one New Jersey resident聽just went above and beyond to do just that with a Secret Santa gesture rivaling that of Bill Gates, who signs up to make someone smile each year through Reddit鈥檚 annual gift-swapping event.

A man identified only as 鈥淐harlie K.鈥澛爉arched into a local聽Toys 鈥楻鈥 Us over the weekend聽to pay for聽more than $10,000 worth of layaway orders. He also shelled out an additional $2,000 on toys as picked out by customers in the store to be donated to Toys for Tots. WOW!

As a spokesperson for the Cherry Hill, NJ store confirmed聽in an email to NJ.com, the Secret Santa requested to foot the bill for more than 62 layaway orders of 8,000 items, which added up to a whopping $10,780.

Speaking with聽KCBD, the inspirational individual explained that he was聽鈥渏ust trying to bring some happiness to people. That鈥檚 really it.聽Help bring back to the community that brought so much happiness to me and my family.鈥

He聽also spoke to CBS Philly, adding,聽鈥淚聽love聽this community and I am trying to provide back to it,鈥 while also speaking out about his chosen charity of Toys for Tots. 鈥淭he Marines and Toys for Tots are one of the best organizations, and I don鈥檛 want to forget them.鈥

Although聽Charlie K. said he strives to give back regularly, this was the first time he had ever done anything this big.聽He had initially planned to pay for ALL聽of the layaway orders, but the sum聽proved to be too much. Even so, those who were treated to聽his surprise generosity were over the moon.

Stephanie Dawson, who discovered that the聽secret Santa had paid $200 for seven presents she had picked out for her grandchildren, issued a thank you to the generous man, saying, 鈥淚 want to say thank you very much, and I appreciate it, and thank God for you.鈥 Meanwhile, shopper Jessica Key called the unexpected gesture 鈥渁n early Christmas,鈥 adding, 鈥淚 want to say thank you to the gentleman that came in and donated. It鈥檚 like the best feeling, thank you.鈥

Our hats go off to you, Mr. K!
