When Aaron Collins died last summer, he left a will for his family. One of his requests was that someone leave an “awesome tip” of something like 500 dollars for a pizza server.

So, the family did just that. They took a video of giving the tip to the waitress and put it online. Soon, the video went viral and the donations followed.

Collins’ brother, Seth, said they have been able to give a 500 dollar tip to more than 300 waitresses and waiters.

But now, Seth wants to hit the road and give a 500 dollar tip to a restaurant server in all of the 50 states.

“I really want to spread this bigger. I want to spread it in a way so that more people and more places are impacted by this random act of kindness,” Seth Collins said. “Because I've seen what it does for people, I've seen how it changes their lives.”

Seth has set up a website to collect donations for his trip at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/aaron-s-last-wish-500-tips-in-50-states-road-trip/x/579264?c=pledges
