There's a big surprise for restaurant servers who are lucky enough to wait on Seth Collins.

Collins has been giving out $500 tips with his meals around his hometown of Lexington. The giveaway was the dying wish of his brother Aaron, who passed away in early July. The family found a will on Aaron Collin's computer that had instructions on what to do with his motorcycle, artwork and to leave a $500 tip.

Seth Collins raised enough money from family and friends to give leave the first big tip, but then he posted a video of the giveaway on YouTube. The video has racked up 2 million views, and the donations started pouring in. The site,, has raised over $47,000.
