    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 this summer!

Tipped Over Stories


I am a daytime busser at a local restraunt and have regular guests come in every week. These two ladies are some of my regular crowd and order all the time for carry out, as well as dine in. I heard about this tipped over thing on WCIC and never thought it would happen to me. But these two ladies came up to me and handed me their receipt and told me to read it. So I read it and they tipped me above and beyond what they usually do. I was so surprised!! This extra tip will go towards my vacation this year.


I have been a hair stylist for 12 years. Until I had two out of four special needs children, I had absolutely no clue how difficult it is for these children to get their hair cut. Being a part of a network, I have and will continue to service these beautiful children. I was given a 100% tip ($10.00 tip on a $10.00 service), because I sat through a 64 minute melt down. I do it for my own children everyday, what makes this child of God different? Nothing! I have received bigger tips in my career, this I felt was the biggest blessing and the most worth it! I knew, at that point, I was doing what I was meant to do. Lastly, I am also a full time college student (stressful), I am delving into the social worker field, and want to work with special needs (also continue to do hair!).


I've been a server for less than a week now. I still get a little overwhelmed and don't always know the answers to all of the questions my guests will ask; however, I still try to provide the people I waitress with the best possible experience so they will be glad to return as I get better at what I am doing. This past Sunday, my first table on what I knew was going to be a long day working a double shift, tipped me $40 on a $39 tab. I had never heard of tipped over before, but was so grateful to have had such generosity sent my way. Though I figured this was a once in a blue moon thing, I still felt so lucky to have had this happen to me in my first week of waiting tables. It totally changed my entire day and made me so happy to be there. I worked at my other job on Monday and came back to this one on Tuesday of this week for a dinner shift, and unbelievably so, my first table of the night left me an $81 tip on their $81 tab. I cannot express enough how big of an impact these two families made on me through their kindness. I often pay for the person behind me in the drive thru as I know how it brightens my day on the rare occasions that it happens to me.  I hear of waitresses getting extensive tips through the holiday season here and there as well, but to have my guests be so selfless with no occasion at all is truly such a blessing. If either of you are out there reading this, thank you so much, again. You've not only helped me out more than enough in hard times, but you've touched my life with your kindness. It is so good to have a reassurance that there are still sweet people with beautiful hearts out there in this world.
