MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) – A Murfreesboro family has started a movement that is growing across the country. They created a Facebook page called Tipping in the Boro. It is dedicated to tip servers of hundreds of dollars.

Tyler, the creator of Tipping in the Boro, said this act of kindness began to help food industry workers in Murfreesboro when the pandemic began. Now their Facebook page has thousands of followers, and the community helps maintain the generosity.

Their goal is to surprise 12 servers before Christmas. So far, they have tipped over six servers of $ 300 or more.

Tyler and his wife capture the reaction of the servers and post the videos to the Tipping in the Boro Facebook page so community members can see who their donations are helping.

“Here’s $ 340 for you,” Tyler said as he handed money to Callie, a Cracker Barrel server.

“Thanks a lot! I’m in college,” Callie said wiping away her tears. “I don’t have any money. I have to find an apartment soon. So thank you very much, that really helps a lot, guys.

For some waiters like Mariah, that extra money was life changing.

“I just went to an apartment reunion because I live in a shelter,” said Mariah, a waitress at Applebee’s. “And so I just went to an apartment meeting today, and I have to have $ 600 by Monday, so you gave me half that money.” Thank you very much. I had no idea how I was going to get this money. Then she was given an additional $ 300 so that she could move into her own apartment. You are kidding. I don’t even know if I can take this.

The creator of Tipping in the Boro said he had no idea Mariah had recently left an abusive relationship. She and her 2 year old child live in a shelter.

“When we gave her that first $ 300 and she told us a story, it really touched me,” Tyler said. “So we gave her the remaining $ 300 to get to her apartment and get out of the situation she was in. “

Since Mariah’s story went viral on Tik Tok, people have reached out to Tipping in the Boro on social media, asking for help in starting a similar movement in communities across the country.
