There’s a bar in Tybee Island, Georgia called The Sand Bar that’s famous for papering its walls with $1 bills.  So the owner and some friends spent three days taking them all down, then gave the money to employees. They ended up with almost $4,000, and each employee got 600 bucks.  But one said they didn’t need the money.  So they gave it to another coworker to help pay her rent. (source)

 

Celebrity chef Jose Andrés is always doing good through food with his charity, World Central Kitchen, which is always on hand to feed crowds after natural disasters and recently during the coronavirus outbreak. And now he’s promised that he’ll be taking care of doctors and nurses for the rest of the year.

In a tweet Andrés writes that when his restaurants reopen, every active doctor and nurse will eat for free for the rest of the year, adding that his “mom and dad, and uncle, and godmother were nurses, doctors, and pharmacists.” It’s a generous way to show gratitude for their hard work and exactly the kind of thing we’ve come to expect from him.
