Looks like TipsForJesus wasn't the only group giving unexpected tips this Christmas. KREM reports that in Spokane, Washington a group of volunteers from the went to various fast food restaurants to give employees $20 bills on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in a program organized by the restaurant community group Big Table. (Some were dressed as Santa, but this is not to be confused with people who got dressed up as Santa and terrorized local bars for SantaCon.) Apparently the group hit some 18 fast food locations, having raised over $3,000 to distribute. Calling the project "Holiday Care Blitz," the volunteers plan to make it an annual tradition.
