Transcript for Waitress receives $1,500 tip as Christmas surprise
Finally tonight, America strong. The community coming together online to serve up a very special Christmas gift. This is our server of the night. Reporter: A spontaneous act of giving. Megan Berkshire had an idea while out for dinner with her family and friends at this Ohio restaurant. My idea was just to get as much donations for a Christmas tip for our server. Reporter: You heard that right, she's planning to give this waitress, Denise Lewis, a Christmas surprise. We just want to let you know that god put you on everyone's heart. Reporter: While at dinner, she posted on Facebook, "We are going to bless this server with your love. Whatever is sent will be this lady's tip." Within minutes, hundreds of dollars pouring in. I remember her taking my order and my venmo account going, "Cha-ching, cha-ching, cha-ching." Reporter: When it came time to pay the check -- There was like 100 people that logged on to see her face. Reporter: Megan, live on her Facebook page with the reveal. We opened up a venmo account and whatever from the time we sat down goes in your pocket. Are you serious? So, you got $1,500. Reporter: $1,500. Oh, my god, this is not a joke right now. This is not a joke. Reporter: Denise had been laid off from a previous job during the pandemic. Megan overcome with emotion and now bursting with gratitude on this Christmas eve. Tears of pure joy. A community coming together and to spread holiday joy. It's a moment I'll always remember. Merry Christmas! God bless! Oh, my god. Some big hearts doing good together.
