Strangers have warmed our hearts this year by anonymously leaving life-changing tips and thoughtful messages for servers across the country.
INSIDE EDITION is taking a look at some of the standout stories of the year.
Among them, Utah waitress Breanne Snow received a $3,000 tips from a football fan. Another diner received a $3,000 tip after telling the customer she was about to get kicked out of her apartment.
"Don't let 'pay it forward' end with you," the diner told her.
Another waitress burst into tears after discovering the reason for a $36 tip on a receipt.
“Today is my brother’s b-day," the message read. "He would have been 36 today. Every year I go eat his favorite meal (hot dogs) and tip the waitress his age. Happy B-day Wes."
And pizza delivery guys also benefited from the kindness of strangers. In a video by ViralHog, one Ohio man was moved to tears when a church congregation tipped him $700, while a woman delivering pizzas to another Ohio church left with a thousand dollar tip.
