Many of you may have been to a bar where customers will write their name or a message on a dollar bill and staple it to a wall in the establishment.
That tradition had been going on at a bar in Georgia for the past 15 years.
When The Sand Bar on Tybee Island, Georgia had to close due to the Coronavirus pandemic last month, owner Jennifer Knox thought she could put that money to good use and help her suddenly unemployed staff.
“We were sitting there doors locked and I’m like ‘oh my gosh, there’s money on the walls and we have time on our hands,'” Knox told CNN. “‘We gotta get this money down.'”
After three days of work, she had removed $3,714 from the walls and gave it to her employees to help them out until they can return to work.
On top of that, once word got out, regular customers made additional donations for a total amount of $4,104.
“We all look out for each other,” she said. “We are all in this together.”
