Man Leaves $10,000 Tips - For Jesus!


Anonymous 'TipsforJesus' Is 'Doing the Lord's Work' By Leaving Thousands of Dollars in Tips

An anonymous person or persons armed with an AMEX Centurion card, a love for college football and an Instagram account is setting out to "do the Lord's work, one tip at a time," leaving thousands of dollars in tips to unsuspecting servers.

On Sept. 8, an @tipsforjesus Instagram account posted the first photo verifying its mission, capturing the image of a receipt for Bar Louie in Ann Arbor, Mich., where they left a $3,000 tip for an $87.98 tab. The account posted two more receipt photos the next day, one featuring a $5,000 tip, the other showing a receipt with a $7,000 tip held by a grinning man, confirmed to be the co-owner of Alley Bar in Ann Arbor. Both of the receipts were signed, "@tipsforjesus."

That same day, tipsforjesus also posted a screenshot of an ABC 4 Utah article about a "mysterious" tipper who left thousands of dollars in tips in Ogden, Utah, this August, with the photo description "#tipsforjesus."

The account has remained active ever since, continuing to leave tips of over $1,000 in bars and restaurants in cities like San Francisco and Chicago. And although tipsforjesus has received numerous comments of praise, and some of skepticism, the account has continued to keep its user's identity a secret.

$10,000 + $2,997.42 does not equal $12,2997.42

I wonder how this guy made his money...

Sometimes when I do stuff

Sometimes when I do stuff like that I get a little nervous. I don't know why.
I dropped a thousand dollars on a young waitress who was due any minute and still working. I felt sorry for her.
I left quietly and as I was buckling into my car the place exploded. Waitresses were coming out the front door looking for the anonymous tipper.
I felt like I robbed a bank because I was trying to do it on the downlo.

did Jesus start working at "Brewskies?" I figured he'd be more of an Olive Garden kinda guy.

"Heeere's your order of endless breadsticks folks, aand some water. Oh, you wanted wine with that? No problem.."

the real total is minus the income tax.


perhaps @tipsforJesus had one drink too many that day, affecting his math skills...
