At IHOP, Donnie Wahlberg gives a single mother a staggering tip

Donnie Wahlberg, a member of New Kids on the Block, made a heartwarming gesture at an IHOP in St. Charles, Illinois. Bethany Provencher, a dedicated single mother working there, caught Donnie’s attention. After enjoying their meal, Donnie and his wife, Jenny McCarthy, left a surprising $2,020 tip on a $35.27 bill. The receipt bore a message: “Thanks, Bethany, Happy New Year,” accompanied by a hand-drawn smiley face.

Bethany, who had recently moved from Miami to Illinois, faced financial difficulties and couldn’t properly furnish her new apartment. This generous tip was a godsend. Bethany’s excitement was palpable, having been a long-time fan of Donnie and his music.

This heartwarming act of kindness resonates in a world where hardworking individuals often struggle to make ends meet. Donnie’s gesture touched Bethany’s life profoundly, demonstrating that amidst life’s challenges, there are still people willing to make a positive difference
