Liz Woodward was just working her usual shift when she overheard 2 firefighters talking about a huge fire they just extinguished. It was a 12-hour battle that was all over local news so Liz knew who she was serving. As a small thank-you, she told them breakfast was on her.
When Tim Young and Paul Hullings went home that day, they uploaded the picture to Facebook and urged their friends to "tip big" if Liz was ever their waitress in the diner. The photo of the bill went viral and soon the firefighters learned that Liz's father, Steve, was a quadriplegic and has been paralyzed for 5 years.
Urging everyone to help donate to Liz's dad's crowdfunding campaign, Liz managed to raise $70,000 out of the original $17,000 they needed for wheelchair, a wheelchair-accessible van and other supplies for her father. She only paid for breakfast and got a life-changing gift for her family!
