Seth Collins‘ brother Aaron passed away just last week on the 7th. He was never a rich man, but his final wish was that the family go out for dinner and give an outrageously generous $500 tip.
The family created the website AaronCollins.org to gather donations for the large tip, and when they reached their mark three days later, they went out for dinner.
The waitress who received the gift was in such shock, she could barely express her gratitude.
Now, the video has gone viral, being viewed more than 625,000 times in just two days. The donations are continuing to come in, and Seth has announced for each $500 donated, they will repeat the random act of kindness.
“When my husband left on his deployment, our 6-year-old son could not walk on his own. He has cerebral palsy. Doctors originally said that he would never walk or do much of anything. While daddy was away, he learned to walk. For his homecoming, we set it up for Michael to walk to his daddy for the first time ever! We kept the fact that he could walk a secret the whole time his dad was gone!”
