“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.”
Really cool story about the power of coordinated kindness. In New Jersey, a woman who works as a waitress was surprised by a $1,200 cash tip left as an early holiday gift by a man and a group of his friends.
NJ.com reports that Zellie Thomas and his friends left the tip for her at the IHOP restaurant in Paterson on Saturday. Each friend brought $100, and it added up to $1,200.
The waitress figured it was a mistake and tried to return the money at first, Thomas told the paper.
“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,” Thomas told a reporter.
“You’d be really surprised, if you put that call out to your friends, how many people would be supportive of that idea.”
Very cool story. “Shock and Claus.”
PS: I would like to put the call out to my friends, including you, to vote for lawmakers who support a living wage for everyone who works in low-paying service industry jobs, how many people would be supportive of that idea?

Unless you’re a regular cannabis user, you might be surprised to learn that the plant itself is basically just that — a plant. It’s not until you put cannabis under high heat that the process of decarboxylation breaks down that raw form into the psychoactive compounds that can actually benefit the body. This unlocking process […]
With our smartphones serving as the vital tether that links us to the rest of our lives, it’s no wonder how low batteries and power emergencies can occasionally feel like a life-and-death situation. I mean, it’s usually not, of course…but darned if it doesn’t feel that way when your indicator is showing only 5 percent […]
