CHARITIPS – Do something good with your tips by donating them to a charity of your choosing

Do you also constantly plan on donating more, but rarely end up actually doing it? I sure do, even if I don’t really know why. Now I finally seem to have found a solution: I decided to save up my tips until the end of December and donate them. Since they are basically an add-on to my salary, this seems to be the best way to spend them wisely.

I want to encourage all of you to join me and put aside whatever percentage of your tips, and then donate the money to a charity of your choosing at the end of December (or later, of course). I know that some jobs don’t pay much without tips, so it’s up to every one of you to decide how much you can afford to save up. It doesn’t matter whether this is the entity of your tips, half, a quarter, or even less.

Personally, I decided to save up all my tips, however little or much money that might be in the end. It’s not about the number, it’s about the gesture, and every single coin can help to make a difference.

Please let me know in the comments if you decide to join me, I’d love to hear about your experiences! I’ll be sure to let you know how things are going for me, and which charity I end up choosing.


All the best

PS: I’m probably not the first one to come up with this idea, so let me know if you read about similar projects elsewhere!
