She Took Her Daughter Out For A Birthday Dinner, And The Final Cost Made Her Jaw Drop


If you turn on the news, it’s a bit difficult to remember that there are some good people in the world. But those who dine at one Applebee’s in Washington, Pennsylvania, get to experience up-close-and-personal random acts of kindness, thanks to an anonymous couple.

Jolie Welling is one of many who have reaped the benefits of the couple’s generosity. They covered the cost of 16 meals at her daughter’s birthday celebration.

According to reports, the couple frequently visits the establishment a few times a week, and when you least expect it, they take care of your meal.

Jolie was one lucky diner who was blessed with a free meal during a birthday celebration for her daughter. She took to Facebook to share the awesome news.

“Thank you to the person that took care of the bill tonight at Applebee’s in Washington!” she posted on social media. “This person paid for the whole party of 16. I have never had this happen before and it brought tears to everyone’s eyes.”

The diners aren’t the only ones moved by the couple’s generosity. Samantha Powell, who is a server at the establishment, was noticeably affected.

“I mean, I was almost in tears, it touches me, too,” Powell said when reflecting on the guests the night of the birthday party.

“They were just so surprised. They were like, ‘Oh my God. Who? Who? And they were looking around and wanted to know who it was, but I would not tell them,” Powell said.

Darla Pepper-Miller says the same thing happened to her and her group earlier this year.

“Just gratitude because, you know, everything that’s going on in the world and so much turmoil and protests and hatred and it’s good to know that there are people that care about each other and give. Pay it forward,” she said.

Bernie Lewis, the restaurant’s assistant manager, says she has sworn to keep the couple’s secret.

Powell knows them, too, and says they own a local business. She says the man once told her he pays others’ checks because “I grew up poor and now I’m not.”
