Here are some of the stories we’ve heard from the people who have been Tipped Over by your generosity.



East Peoria

I delivered a floral arrangement to a young lady this morning. After I handed the flowers to her, she handed me what appeared to be an unopen drinking straw. She said there was money there. When I returned to the store, I noticed a note was rubber banded around the straw. I opened the paper wrapping around the straw to see there was a tightly rolled $20 bill inside the straw. The note wrapped around the straw said, “Go to” That was an awesome tip; thank you! Since it is the season of giving, I will match the $20 tip and donate it to the Children’s Hospital of Illinois. Best wishes for a Happy Holiday season!



I am a serve at a chain Italian restaurant. It was a slow night, and I was stressing over how I was going to pay my utility bill. I knew I needed to make at least $45 in order to do so and get food for the night. A gentleman came in and got soup (no salad) and a dessert at the end. He left me about 50%. It wasn’t much, but it was greatly appreciated! I needed it. God works in mysterious ways. Thank you to the kind man who did this! God bless!



A nice, easy family of 4 tipped me $30 dollars and wrote on the receipt “” It was a very nice feeling. I serve to take care of my 2-year-old while I am in nursing school. Thank you!!!



The kindest woman named Tasha was at my drive thru today. It was in the middle of one of the craziest lunch rushes I’ve ever seen, and she was so insistent on me keeping the receipt. Come to find out, she left $100. At first I didn’t believe it; I still don’t. She doesn’t know I just lost my health insurance and really need my thyroid medication. She doesn’t know I can just make enough to cover rent because I am a full-time student. She doesn’t know the last couple of months have been really hard on me. But I hope she now knows I am forever grateful for such a generous act on her behalf. I can’t wait to have her at my window once again. You’re the best, Tasha!



My 13 year old son went to a conference last spring that had a theme of “be generous always”. One of his leaders gave the group the challenge to be generous and gave them each $20. My son didn’t know what to do with it. Last night, my son and I went out to eat at a place we had never been before. The waiter was great! My son left the $20 for the tip, which ended up being a 75% tip!
