Love from Sweden to the server who got this gift and shared it with all the rest of the staff Such a big loving heart! You are UNIQUE, in a cold selfish cruel world, I hope you know that! Wish there were more of you out there.

Facebook user:

As a server, I absolutely love this! I would have shared it with everyone too! I'm soooo happy for you all, I can only dream this will happen someday. Congrats yall!

Facebook User:

What a blessing! It’s so great to be kind and to do a random act of kindness for others. It doesn’t have to cost much. Kindness and a smile go a long way. Your place is also awesome!


It's awesome to know there are still some truly amazing people in the world.
