Carlos shared Tonnee’s story on Instagram, and it only took minutes for Carlos’s followers to help raise $10,000 for this man in need.
“I saw his empty tip jar and asked you guys to cash app and Venmo a tip for him,” Carlos later explained in a second post.
“30 minutes later and after a 20-minute conversation getting to know him, we tipped Tonee, who has kidney disease and is on dialysis 9 hours every night but still comes into work every day to play $10,000… which has grown to $61,000.”
“I love it when we show the talking heads who make a living stoking outrage that there’s a better way to be human. This is it. Love you guys.”
Carlos has been sharing more updates on how much money has been raised since then for Tonee, and it’s now more than $70,000.
