Wanting every girl at his high school to feel loved on Valentine’s Day, one big-hearted Oklahoma teen decided to surprise all of them with cards and candy this year -- a total of 1,076 girls.

According to KFOR, Dan Williams, a student at Edmond High School in Edmond, Oklahoma, had to work all summer to raise enough money for the surprise gifts. “To know that someone cares about them, that's the best feeling in the world I think,” he told the news outlet.

Though Williams intended the gifts to be anonymous, he was reportedly unable to keep his identity a secret for long.

He’s since won the praise of his classmates -- and the school itself.

On Valentine’s Day, Edmond High School, whose mascot is a bulldog, honored the young man with this tweet:

Dan Williams: You're a champ.
