We love to see a celebrity – hell we love to see anyone – doing good things. The world feels so negative all the time, so seeing the positive is what is getting us through.
Blue Bloods star Donnie Wahlberg has always been one of those celebrities who really gives back. He’s on twitter all the time interacting with fans and reminding them how loved they are. It’s a big thing, because he truly means it.
And he also thinks about those in real life too. Right now, times are hard and the hospitality industry is really going through it. The actor took care of someone who always takes care of him.
The actor was at Marshland Restaurant in Massachusetts and as part of his #2020TipChallenge left his server, Denise Andrews, a $2,020 tip on a $35.27 bill.
“Donnie has been here before in the past and he always asks for [Denise],” Marshland restaurant owner Marty Finch shared with People. “He had his normal order: steak tips with some grilled asparagus and some poached eggs. She always knows what he wants.”
“When he left he just said, ‘Denise you’re all set. The payment is on the table,’” Marty remembered about the moment. “She always says he’s a very good tipper anyway but her jaw dropped, to say the least, when she saw that amount of tip.”
What a touching moment and definitely something great in 2020.
