PLEDGE TO TIP
Restaurant servers, bartenders, baristas and other service industry workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic could really use your help during the closure of the places where they work. Ames Tip Jar is a local website that helps out local hospitality workers during this shutdown.
The way it works is that a restaurant/bar or individual can sign up as a recipient, and set up a Venmo, Paypal, or Cashapp account to receive funds. Tippers can choose a service worker at random to tip, or can browse the list of those who have already signed up. The tip money goes straight to the worker.
It is an opportunity to share a small act of kindness with our service industry community during these uncertain times.
