Losing a loved one is the most challenging thing that can happen in life. But for this family, it was so unexpected. Dakota and Ream Nelson were working in the garage when the mother of 7 collapsed suddenly. They were able to get her to the hospital, but because her brain was devoid of oxygen, there was little chance of her survival.

Three months passed, and through all this, Dakota and the kids didn’t lose hope. However, one evening the 38-year-old left this world. Moreover, this left Dakota all alone to raise his children from ages 1 to 16. And even though he was working three part-time jobs, money was running time. Not to mention that the first Christmas without his wife was right around the corner. Luckily, a Secret Santa from Idaho was aware of Dakota’s story. And the anonymous philanthropist sent out a gift to the East Idaho man through a local news team.

But then, the presenter gives his the kids a gift box that has $1000 gift cards to Walmart and a local store each. Furthermore, the host then hands Dakota and check of $8000, and he cannot hold back tears. Overwhelmed by generosity, the father even asks who he can thank. But the kind patron wants to remain anonymous, and he hugs the host instead. Watch the touching video below:
