Kind-Hearted Woman Gives Waitress $330 Tip To 'Pay It Forward'

Kind-Hearted Woman Gives Waitress $330 Tip To 'Pay It Forward'

A US waitress was left in tears after a kind customer left a large tip as part of the 'Venmo Challenge'.

Katie Taylor had only recently returned to her waitressing job in Indiana, due to the coronavirus, and served a woman who ran up a $35 (£27.35) bill.

Unbeknownst to Katie, the woman she had served, Heather Hotrum, was also a waitress and she was taking part in a 'pay it forward' movement that's currently growing on social media in which people raise donations before offering up a hefty tip for service staff who have been negatively impacted by the pandemic.

One of Katie's pals had nominated her to receive the substantial tip as part of the movement, which has been named 'the Venmo Challenge' after the money-sharing app that's popular in the US.

As well as paying the $35 bill, Heather handed over a $330 (£257.89) tip.
