Magician Turns $5 Tips Into $100 Windfalls

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," Magician Stuart Edge turns small bills into small miracles for pizza delivery men. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Edge says when he learned just how little pizza delivery drivers make he wanted to help.

Stuart came up with a new trick of turning a tip of five singles into five twenties.

One driver who gets $100 responds, "That's awesome, I like teared up."

    Wonderful! I wish there was a way to tip workers at ethnic restaurants, where the bosses pocket the tips most of the time. I have even started to ask waiters/waitresses who gets the tips. If they indicate they do not, forget it; I leave $0 tips.

    At one Vietnamese restaurant in Oakland, I squeezed $10 into the waitress's pocket. Her face lit up and that made my day. On other occasions, a woman, I could say she was the owner, at another Vietnamese restaurant gave me a crappy customer service and earned $0 in tips from me.

    Over the past 15 years I have been a pizza cook ,pizza waitress and a pizza delivery woman. At all Pizza places that are corporate I have been paid below minimum wage.

    I had to pay for my own gas, insurance and upkeep on my car. The companies charged a delivery fee of 2.00 to 3.75 per order. I got a dollar of that fee and because of that people thought that charge went us and I would not get a tip. This video made me cry. I was always grateful to the few kind customers I received.

    I need the Good Stuff e-mail alert or something. I mean, there is a lot of stuff to be concerned about, but you need to have a few of these reports here and there to keep your hope in humanity as strong as it can be.

    Way to go guy! I'm sure it meant even more than the $100 to them. Happiness is priceless!
