Ellen rewards waitress who bought lunch for service membersThe bill was $27.75, her reward for paying it was far greater. Sarah Hoidahl, a New Hampshire waitress, even though she is a single mom living on tips, bought lunch for two National Guard service members who were furloughed recently in the government shutdown.

The Guardswomen posted the kind note they received from Sarah on Facebook from which thousands of people were inspired — including the Ellen Show producers.

Sarah was flown from Concord to Los Angeles to be on the show Friday where Ellen paid her back the $27.75. Then the talk show gave her a television, because they heard Sarah’s was broken.

It didn’t stop there.

Watch what happens…
