Virtual tip jar launched

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere...virtual tip jar platform allows Memphians to directly support furloughed hospitality workers citywide.

When you work for tips, it already can be challenging to make ends meet. But when your livelihood is literally shut down overnight, it’s downright terrifying. Enter the virtual tip jar, an online platform started by concerned Memphians and boosted by to help support those whose tip-based income has ended due to COVID-19. More than 700 local service industry employees have listed their Venmo, PayPal and/or CashApp info to receive tips online while they're out of work. Any monies given to the selected individual will go to him or her directly via the cash app. For more information or to make a donation, visit
