    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 bartender in Delavan! It was a mellow night at the bar on Monday night. A nice guy came in a ordered food to go and left me a 100% tip! It kept me going the rest of the night. Thanks!!!


I was having a super bad night at work and the person I work with is a pain and wants everything her way. I was having a really good conversation with two men who turned out to be preachers, who changed their life around. As they were cashing out, he handed me a 20$ bill and told me I have been blessed and tipped over . He also told me he's going to pray for me and invited me to his service!


I was tipped over and I want to explain what that meant for me on a day like today. I clocked back in from break with two tables on deck. We'll call one the "tipper-overs;" they are why I'm here. Five minutes later, two more tables sit in my section. Ten minutes later, I have a 6-top sit in my section and two more couples. Seven tables is a fair load for a server, but I've been doing this a while so a chill Sunday for me. One table gets mad at me because a corporate rule: I can't serve dad's burger medium rare. I also am not supposed to sing happy birthday and one child wants me to. They rip both my managers and myself apart over rules none of us make. This took 10 minutes. Couple 4 has needed a refill for several minutes. Ice needs refilled. Trash needs emptied. Couple 2 needs another drink. "Tipped-over" needs napkins. The server sharing my dining room has been sitting at her only table for 15 minutes. Couple 5 needs a check. Couple 1 wanted a different kind of taco than the one I rang in "wrong." Birthday-song table is still yelling at my helpless manager. Someone spills a drink. This all happens in a 20 minute period, on top of all my normal server routine. After the dust settles of rush number one, I collect my credit slips. "Tipped-over," the table that only needed napkins outside of whatever typical things I would do for them, have left me a note explaining I had been tipped over with a charge tip of $25 on a $44 check, as well as another $5 in cash. In an overwhelming amount of chaos that ensued for me in a matter of minutes, you recognized my hard work and brightened my day. When a table that normally would have ruined my mood for at least a couple hours gave me a hard time, you completely erased it with your gracious gesture. A bartender at my job had a heart attack Friday night. She has to take several days off, and she's the main income for her household. I will be using your "tipped over" to donate to her GoFundMe, so she can get the rest she needs. You have no idea what your "tipped over" meant to me on a day like today. You inspire me. Thank you.
