Since September, one person has left more than $54,000 worth of gratuity at restaurants around the country—crazy tips, like $1,000 on a $152 tab. Who is this good Samaritan? All we know is that he or she goes by tipsforjesus on Instagram

A few photos show people posing with their receipts.

The tipster, who resides somewhere in in Southern California, is serious about making sure the tips get to the right person.

About a week ago, a waiter from a restaurant in Notre Dame commented on a photo, claiming tipsforjesus’s $10,000 tip never went through.

“Notre Dame is stiffing you?” tipsforjesus wrote. “Hmmm, let me make sure the charges went through since they claim they did not.
