Actor Donnie Wahlberg is known for a lot of things. He's a New Kid On The Block Singer, Blue Blood Actor, part owner of Burger chain Wahlbugers and he does a ton of nice things for other people. This New Year's Day was no exception!
On Jan. 1, Donnie and his wife Jenny McCarthy were eating at an IHOP location near their home in Illinois—their bill was 75.45 - He left their server a $2,020 tip. He signed it: “Thanks Bethany,” “2020 Tip Challenge” and “Happy new year” notes.
The “2020 Tip Challenge” is a tipping trend that started in Michigan when a server at Thunder Bay River Restaurant received a $2,020 tip on a $23 bill.
Bethany Provencher was Donnie's server. She's a 37 year old single mom.
This isn't the first time Donnie has over tipped. He shared his motivation in a post from July 2017 at a Waffle House in Charlotte, NC.
"My mom waited tables, and my dad tended bars-- for years! So, when I walk into a#WaffleHouse, and the staff treats me like a king, you better believe I treat them like queens! Thanks to the team at@wafflehouseofficialCharlotte, NC!"
