Generosity passed on: Edmonton bar staff decide to donate $1,000 tip to charity

Staff at an Edmonton bar have no doubt added to their good karma by donating a hefty tip from a satisfied customer.

EDMONTON — Staff at an Edmonton bar have no doubt added to their good karma by donating a hefty tip from a satisfied customer.

Servers at Hudsons on the popular Whyte Avenue strip were given $1,000 last Thursday night by someone who said he had enjoyed the service.

Celeste Bouchard, who was working that night, says the man asked to use the debit machine and typed in the numbers himself.

Bouchard says he and her co-workers just didn’t feel right when they were dividing up the money later that night.

They took the cash to Edmonton’s Stollery Children’s Hospital the next day.

Bouchard, a nursing student, admits she could have used her share of the money, but she didn’t give it a second thought.

“This man chose to do this and he was choosing to be so generous and I think it is important to pay it forward,” she said.

“I think it is important to make the world better and be nice.”
