- Before they came to the IHOP restaurant, they all planned to come with $100 (N36,250) each as a tip
- After their meal, the group gathered all the money and gave it to the waitress who attended, she almost cried out of joy
A group of people has been a source of blessing to a waitress, Angelica, at an IHOP restaurant in New Jersey, giving her a $1,200 (N435,000) tip.
One of the people who showed the rare act of kindness, Zellie Thomas, shared the pictures they took with the waitress on Saturday, December 14.
Thomas explained how he and 11 other friends of his brought $100 (N36,250) each to the restaurant with the plan that they would gather and give them to the waitress.
He said after they had paid their food bill, they gave the money they brought which was $1200 in all to the lady.
“We paid the bill and gave our waitress a $1,200 tip. It really is a privilege to be someone else's blessing,” Thomas said.
The lady reacted in a very emotional way as she covered her face in amazement, saying they are “going to make” her “cry”.
Angelica was more surprised when she counted the money and could not believe how much it really was, thinking perhaps they made a mistake.
Thomas, in speaking with NJ, emphasized the power in a community, saying all it takes sometimes is for people to come together and change a person’s life.
“I really hope this shows people that there’s power in community and all it takes is a group of friends to come together and change someone else’s life.
“If you and your friends have the capacity and heart to pool your money to give a large tip to a waitress this holiday season that you know deserves it. I encourage it. You’ll be surprised how many of your friends would be supportive of the idea!,” he said.

Ozil’s act of charity was heavily influenced by his mum and what she told him in a letter. The letter which has since been framed and hung on the star player’s wall without mincing words told him to always share his wealth with people in need.
