Some of the hardest hit places during the pandemic have been bars, restaurants, and the rest of the service industry. That’s why people anonymously leaving huge tips has become pretty popular now.
Down in Florida a new charity started up called “Put It on Pete’s Tab”. Which works to help people in the service industry pay their bills. It all started in tribute to a bartender in Florida named Pete O’Brien who passed away in March. Pete was a big fan of leaving huge tips to pay it forward to people. To continue Pete’s generosity his friends started doing the same and writing “Put It on Pete’s Tab” on the receipt. Which then led them to start the charity, and now they’re using donations to pay bills for servers and bartenders across the country.
