Speaking Of Tipping Your Server: The Amazing Legacy Left By One Man


February 9, 2013

Aaron Collins had one last wish when he died at 30 years old. Known to be a good tipper, he asked his brother Seth to go have dinner with his family and give a a very nice tip $500, to be exact.

His family has turned that into something very special, and a living testament to his life. They have a website, aaroncollins.org, where they take donations to keep it going and pay it forward. They have raised $65,000 so far, and have been spreading the joy from New Orleans to New York.

2. Just the tip.

The meal AND the normal tip are paid for out their own pockets.

3. That started at Puccini's in Lexington, Ky.

Notice the tee the Welsh girl is wearing. That's Country Boy Brewery in Lexington, Ky. I was there yesterday.
