Tips For Jesus is an anonymous group of diners that are know for leaving generous tips at restaurants across the country. They post pictures of receipts on an Instagram account under the user name tipsforjesus.
The mystery tipper or tippers have reportedly left thousands of dollars in tips at restaurants in San Francisco and Chicago. Tips For Jesus recently left a server at The Hungry Cat in Los Angeles a $1,000 tip on a $266 bill.
Becky Graziano from The Hungry Cat’s restaurant told the station believes it is someone who wants to be generous during the holiday season.
“I think I was more nervous than anybody, because I pay them out at the end of the night. But it went through, so they got their money,” Graziano told the station. “It’s a mystery for sure.”
University of Notre Dame campus restaurant said two of their bartenders would share a $10,000 tip that was left by a group of men. They signed the receipt @tipsforjesus and posted a photo of the bartenders with their tab on Instagram.
One of Legends bartender Ashley Sullivan stated: “I know one bartender is wanting to get a car because, right now, she has no transportation and the other bartender has student loans. We’ve all been to college, so we all have that debt right there.”
A manager at MoonDogs Too in Port Orchard, Washington said a group of men left a $5,000 tip. The men reportedly provided the bartender with their names, phone numbers and places of work.
Ashley Sullivan said,”It makes you feel good. It makes you feel like the job you do is actually noticed by people and How hard you work.”
Servers at downtown Ann Arbor’s Bar Louie and Alley Bar got an unusual surprise one night when they received tips of astronomical proportions.
An anonymous patron left a $3,000 tip for an $87.98 bill at Bar Louie, followed by a $7,000 tip for a $200 bill at Alley Bar.
Rumors are circulating that the generous tips might be from Jack Selby known as: A Managing Director at Clarium Capital Management LLC. Prior to Clarium, Mr. Selby served as a Corporate Officer and Senior Vice President of PayPal, Inc. (NASDAQ: PYPL). Mr. Selby was an original member of the founding PayPal team, and served in a variety of roles during his tenure at the company, including the management of PayPal’s international operations.
Mr. Jack R. Selby is receiving mixed feedback from both sides of the secular and christian base, even though, he has not even admitted to being the “man behind the curtain.” Several views are appreciative ones and of course there are several jealous reactions as well.
The mystery still remains too whom ever it might be that commits these generous acts should not be put up on a chopping block. To discourage or lecture about how one should give is ludicrous, these actions, such as our own actions are between us and God.
