    It's simple. Just look for any opportunity to show love to those who serve us!

    Leave a larger-than-usual tip. (You decide how much. Maybe it's 25%, or maybe it's 70%. Something that fits your budget.)

    On the receipt, write:

    "You've been tipped over! Check out"

    When we serve or give just to make someone's life a little better - with no agenda but authentic love - the heart of Jesus is expressed.

    Thanks for helping Share the Love!

Tipped Over Stories


A couple and their kids came in for dinner. The mother ordered pancakes for their boys. The youngest had to have whipped cream for his pancakes, so I brought out the whole bottle for them - why not?! :) Sorry, mom! They were very easy going and great to talk to. When they left, I saw I had been over tipped. It made me smile and warmed my heart that they felt I deserved to be "tipped over." I have never heard of this and definitely will be passing it forward. I hope this family has a wonderful Christmas!


From the moment I woke up this morning I knew today was not going to be my day.. I woke up to my battery dead in my truck, had to take a friend to a court date that didn't end very well, I'm still behind on my bills & to top it off once I got to work, it was dead, and then as soon as everyone left and I was on my own I got slammed.. hard! A total of 10 tables & most were 4 or more people, 3 tables left me absolutely nothing & the others left me $2.. then something amazing happened.. I was cleaning off my tables & 2 of them had left the note "you've been tipped over". Both tables left me over $15! They don't realize how much that meant to me that someone noticed my hard work! Thank you to the two family's who made me feel recognized & appreciated!!!


I work in Bloomington, Ill. I work two jobs to make ends meet since I am a single mom and have 4 kids at home. Well, today I waited on a gentleman named "David Haynes" and he over-tipped me which really made my day. I really was surprised and very thankful. Now my goal is to pay it forward. God is wonderful, and it feels so good when when we can make God happy by doing good for others. Again, I would like this gentleman to know I appreciated his kind generosity. God Bless everyone.
