A Great Reason to Give Huge Tips

“If you want to send a message it has to be meaningful. It can’t be some half step.”

This one might inspire you to leave a 50% tip on your next restaurant bill.

Marketwatch profiles Russ Johnson, who it describes as “the most generous tipper in America” because he regularly leaves tips of 30%-50% on just about everything.

Johnson decided to do so because he believes handing out large tips to hardworking people is a better charitable act than donating that same money to charities where a lot of those dollars would go to cover overhead.

This way, he puts his money directly in the hands of people who need it and gets the added benefit of being able to see first hand the impact his generosity has on others.
