I love this story SO much! It's my dream to do something like this too....on New Years DAY, Donnie Walhberg and his wife Jenny McCarthy stopped in at IHOP in St. Charles, Illinois, where they live. The bill was $75.45- and Donnie left a $2K TIP! It was actually a tip of $2020, aka "2020 in 2020." Their server was a woman named Bethany Provencher- a single mom who's been a server for over 25 years. Needless to say, she was COMPLETELY in shock when she realized what Donnie did.
She said, "I just started crying. I couldn't believe it. I mean, who does that? It was a blessing. I just moved into an apartment, I'm a single mother- by myself with my son. So I struggle every day to make ends meet. And now I can buy furniture and put some money in the bank, and make sure my son is good. God put him there for a reason, and I know this. It's the greatest thing to ever happen in my life."
That is so amazing! I remember one time, I left a waiter $100 on $32, cause I felt so bad for how busy he was and how his hard work wasn't being acknowledged. Granted, it wasn't $2K, but it still felt really good. May we all have that ability to surprise someone like that, someday. More on the story here!
