We could all use a little bit of good news to end the week. Kind Kravings, a double-decker vegan food bus in downtown Wichita, recently found an usually large tip in their tip jar. Owners Rochelle Collins and Shea West thought the tip was, at first, some sort of mistake — that someone had perhaps miscounted. But after a secondary check, the pair realized that someone had, in fact, left an anonymous, $500 tip.

They called some of their regular customers, hoping to give thanks to the generous mystery person. However, either none of them was the tipster or none of them admitted it. Where some businesses might take the tip for themselves, Collins and West took a different approach.

The Wichita Eagle reported, “Collins said she never wanted to accept tips at the business but people would insist on leaving them, so she finally put out a jar. But writing on the jar alerts customers that the truck has a “pay it forward” policy regarding tips. They always donate them to an animal rescue organization, and the $500 was delivered this morning [July 17, 2017] to Beauties and Beasts, a local animal rescue.”

This is a wonderful reminder that sometimes the best thing we can do is let our kind acts speak for themselves. We don’t always need to be seen doing good. Let’s hope that kind acts like this — and kindnesses like donating tips — become increasingly common in our day-to-day lives.
