A feel-good April Fools' Day prank played on unsuspecting waitress Chelsea Roff left her richer after she did the same for others.

Roff was thrilled when friends, co-workers at Los Angeles' Spring St. Smoke House, and the people at Break.com presented her with multiple gestures to say thank you for her many good deeds.

Through yoga, Roff overcame a severe eating disorder and eventually started the non-profit organization Eat, Breathe, Thrive to help others recover from similar issues.

One by one, customers left Roff tips of escalating amounts. First, she received $1,000, then two tickets to Hawaii. Next, she landed her "dream job," followed by keys to a new car. To cap it off, Roff was surprised by an old friend who flew into town for a visit.

"She's dealt with her share of life's challenges, but despite them she's dedicated herself to helping others, even creating a nonprofit yoga organization to help other women," Break said in a news release, according to Fox8.

Judging from her joyous reaction, Roff was thrilled by the outpouring of support.

"I literally can't wipe this silly smile off my face," Roff wrote on her Facebook page. "My cheek muscles are stuck in happy mode."

The dream job came courtesy of clinical psychologist Dr. Susan Krevoy, who posed as a customer, then told Roff that she was starting an eating disorder program and needed a yoga teacher.

"I did my own research on her and I was just so taken with her story and how hard she worked to go from the bottom of the pit to the top," Dr. Krevoy told E! Online. "I was just so thrilled to be a part of it."

For every 1,000 views, Break will donate $1 to DoSomething.org, with a maximum of $30,000.
