Donnie Wahlberg Left a $2020 Tip for His IHOP Server

If you, like me, have spend any time in your life waiting tables, you know what a rollercoaster trying to estimate your monthly income can be – mostly because, no matter how good you are at your job or how many shifts you work, you can never predict what sort of tips folks are going to end up leaving you.

And (in America, at least) servers live off their tips, not the $2 and change they get paid per hour otherwise.

So, I imagine that this woman’s day was significantly improved on New Year’s Day, when Donnie Wahlberg and his wife, Jenny McCarthy, sat down in her section.

Jenny posted a picture of the receipt, with this caption:

“…starting 2020 off like the amazing man he is.”

People are loving the gesture – ad rightfully so. We all know that a little kindness goes a long way!

On the receipt, Wahlberg wrote “Happy New Year” and “2020 Tip Challenge.”

I hope you’re having a great start to the year yourself, and that if your income depends on other people, there are more with the means out there who want to rise to this challenge themselves.

Spread the love when you’ve got plenty to go around, my friends!
