Fantastic. Doesn't even have to be charity, a random act of kindness qualifies.

That is a cool idea. One I like to do, occasionally, especially if I know the waitress has been having a bad day, is to leave an extra $20 with the tip. Don't do it often, but when I can I like to. If I find out she is a single mom, especially this time of year, I try to do some extra.
