Top the Tip: College Edition sponsored by Lil Yachty

  When my daughter went to college, I had no way of helping her financially. That’s supplies, dorm room essentials, clothes, anything!!!! Luckily, she had a job at Bed Bath and Beyond so she was able to not only afford her supplies but also her dorm room essentials! As a parent, it tore me up inside that I wasn’t able to help her more. Many times, I would go in the negative just to get her groceries... I don’t wish that pain on no parent. This school year, we used our “Top the Tip” initiative to help 2020 Pebblebrook graduates /...

ATLANTA PROTESTS

Friday May 29, We watched as many cities all over the world were uprising. Police cars and buildings were being damaged and set on fire. Police in riot gear were shooting protesters with rubber bullets and tear gas. Our city was hurt.. the World was hurting. The uprisings were caused by the murder of George Floyd by the knee of a Minnesota Police officer. The world watched as George took his last breath.  We couldn’t take one more minute of watching... posting... talking and tweeting about that’s happening. We had to get involved. Some kind of way.We woke up Saturday morning, got our cooler...

GOOD HUMAN ACTS OF KINDNESS!

For May, our goal was to give back in a different kind of way. We got 3 gift cards to pass out to complete strangers. We chose to pass them out to essential  employees.

ATL STREET CLEAN!

During this time of "Social Distancing", we wanted to find a way to do something in our community that doesn't allow us to come in contact with others. We chose to clean up the area around Hurt Park in Atlanta. Hurt Park is known for its large homeless population. Many people visit to bring them food, clothes and toiletries. Unfortunately, because of this, the area accumulates a lot of litter. So, we got the gang together and hit the streets! It wasn't pretty, but it was MUCH better after we left!!   CLICK HERE FOR MORE PICS

MARCH/APRIL TOP THE TIP

Thanks to the Good Humans of Instagram, we were able to bless 2 more service workers with large tips!   The first #topthetip was in February and we blessed a Waffle House waitress with a $500 tip! Due to Covid-19, we halted fundraising for March but were able to collect $250 prior to stopping. In April, we blessed an Uber Eats driver and a Door Dash driver with $125 each. While one of the recipients reached out to thank us, the other didn't so we're not sure if she actually opened the envelope. lol Thanks again to everyone that made this...
