A married couple left a $1,000 tip for a single mother working as a bartender at a hotel in Brown County, Indiana. Anna Hofstetter struck up a conversation with the couple staying at the hotel while celebrating their wedding anniversary. She told them she’s a single mom and works three jobs to support her two kids. She said they ordered Long Island Iced Teas, a crab artichoke appetizer and the dinner special. Their check came out to $32.40. When she picked up the receipt, she saw they wrote $1,000 in the tip column. There was also a message saying, “give something for kids.” While deciding what to do with the money, she bumped into the president of the Brown County Enrichment for Teens Association.

A group of kids are collecting money to build a skate and teen park. It’s a project Anna thought would make a lasting impact so she felt it was worth a $1,000 donation.
