California Representative Eric Swalwell successfully found the rightful recipients of a Christmas gift card that was mistakenly sent to his Washington, D.C. address after asking his Twitter followers for help.
Swalwell tweeted that what he called #OperationGrandma had been a success on Friday afternoon after he played a somewhat belated Santa by personally delivering the card. Hours earlier, Swalwell had appealed to his followers to help him find two people named “Erick and Emma.”
“Does anyone know an Emma and Erick living in a basement apartment in DC?” Swalwell wrote in his initial tweet. “A gift card was sent to them but arrived in my DC mail. Only return info I have is ‘Grandma.’ I’d like to get it to them!”
