A group of seven friends wanted to make someone's Christmas a little more merry this year, and they gave an unsuspecting waitress a gift she'll never forget.

Mike "Tonto" Alexander heard about people pooling their money to leave a big tip for their waitress and asked six of his friends if they wanted to join together to do something similar. "None of us are going to miss that $100, but whoever gets that $1,000, it'll have a nice impact on them," Alexander told WWMT. They decided to give their mega tip to a waitress at Theo & Stacy's Restaurant in Kalamazoo, Michigan, because the restaurant is known for giving back to the community and providing free meals during the holidays.
