Donnie Wahlberg and his wife Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg started their year off on a kind note. Donnie and Jenny ate at an IHOP in St. Charles, Illinois on New Year’s Day. After their meal, Donnie gave the server something very special: a $2,020 tip.
Jenny tweeted a photo of the receipt, showing pride for her husband. She captioned the photo, “@DonnieWahlberg starting 2020 off like the amazing man he is. #ihop #2020tipchallenge” On the receipt, Donnie wrote “Happy New Year” and “2020 Tip Challenge.”
Donnie Wahlberg celebrated the New Year by giving a $2,020 tip
At the time of posting, the viral tweet has 720 retweets and over 9,000 likes. This isn’t the first time that Donnie has participated in a “Tip Challenge.” In 2017, he left a $2,000 tip for a server at Waffle House in Charlotte, North Carolina. He has been known to give large tips at other restaurants as well. So cool!
Hopefully, other people follow this challenge and surprise others with their generosity! If you aren’t a millionaire like many celebrities, you can still throw in an extra few dollars to make someone’s day in 2020.
