Waitress Pays Struggling Soldier’s Tab. Then Ellen Gives Her A Life-Changing Surprise

One day Sarah Hoidahl was just a regular server and bartender. Only weeks later she was on Ellen’s. What happened in the meantime was shared by thousands of people and inspired even more to be kind to one another.

It all started when two female soldiers came to lunch to the restaurant she works at and went through the menu looking for something “light” (i.e. inexpensive).

The note was posted on social media and went viral and of course, Ellen had to meet the generous waitress and reward her kindness. Watch.
