Actor Tom Selleck left a $2,020 tip after being inspired by a “Blue Bloods” co-actor. He also left a touching note for the restaurant employees.
The veteran actor Thomas William Selleck, popularly known by just Tom, is celebrating the year-end with generosity. Right before the year 2020 ended, he gave a huge tip to restaurant employees.
As the coronavirus pandemic greatly affected businesses, including restaurants, this year, people are stepping in with huge tips to help them somehow cope up. Big tips started to make headlines. Tom’s “Blue Bloods” co-actor Donnie Wahlberg was among those who made it on the news for his generous tip.
On November 7, 2020, Donnie left his waitress, Denise Andrews, a $2,020 tip on top of his $35.27 bill. Despite Donnie wanting to make his gesture a secret, the restaurant took to Instagram to express their gratitude. With his incredible generosity, he inspired his co-actor, Tom, to do the same.
Three days after the news broke out, Tom also left a $2,020 tip on top of his $204.68 bill after dining at a restaurant on the Upper East Side. Along with his tip, he also wrote a heartfelt note.
“I am honoring my friend Donnie Wahlberg’s ‘Tip Challenge’ with my sincere hope for a better 2020. Thank you all,” Tom wrote.
It turned out that there was this #2020TipChallenge that has been going around right before 2020 ended. The tip challenge was started in hopes to help people in need and the local business after having a hard time during the past year.
Donnie tweeted about Tom’s generous act and emphasized that he was not the one who started the challenge.
“I didn’t start it but I’m proud to be part of it,” Donnie wrote. “To those who gave even the smallest extra amount this year — THANK YOU. #spreadloveandlovewillspread”
Love ya dad. ❤️

Despite how hard 2020 went by for everyone, God is still showing his goodness to everyone through people’s good hearts. God blessed us so that we can be a blessing to somebody else. That was what Tom and Donnie just did, they became a blessing to someone else.
