Aaron Collin’s Dying Wish ‘Leave an Awesome Tip’ Makes Waitress $500 Richer [VIDEO]
30-year-old Aaron Collins of Lexington, Kentucky passed away on July 7, 2012. One of his last wishes was that if he had enough money left over after his death his family would leave a big tip for a waiter or waitress – like a $500 tip. He didn’t have that much money, so his brother started a website to take donations. Thanks to the donations of complete strangers his last wish was carried out by his family at a pizza place in Lexington called Puccini’s Smiling Teeth (it seems like the perfect place to make a waitress smile.)
Aaron’s brother, Seth, and more of his family videoed their generous tipping and there is no doubt that Aaron’s generous last wish has had a lasting effect on their waitress.
In just one night the website generated $10,000 in donations. Seth and his family pledge that as long as they keep getting donations, they will continuing to fulfill Aaron’s dying wish. Even if it means going out to eat several times a day.
