NBC 4 (Los Angeles):
"Tips for Jesus" Doles Out More Than $50K to Bartenders, Servers
"Tips for Jesus" is their name, leaving massive tips at restaurants is their game. From a $1,500 tip at a restaurant in San Francisco to a $10,000 tip left at a bar in Indiana, a mysterious person -- or people -- have been extra generous. And it’s all being chronicled on Instagram under the username @tipsforjesus.
The account launched in September, and has more than 16,000 followers as of Tuesday -- which happens to be Giving Tuesday, a national initiative to encourage charity at the start of the holiday shopping season.
The few dozen photos that have been posted thus far capture snapshots of receipts, with signatures simply signed “@tipsforjesus," in reference to their Instagram account.
I hope the recipients know enough to save some of that cash for when tax time rolls around.
