Aaron Collins died July 7, 2012, just 3 weeks after he turned 30. He left a particular request in his Will that has gone viral, and has seen a website receive thousands in donations.
Aaron’s Wish was simple. When ordering a pizza, give the waiter or waitress who gives you the pizza, a $500 tip. This was done as Aaron requested once enough donations were received on the site, and here is the video of the successful tipping:
The video went viral very quickly, and has already reached over 2 million views on YouTube. This started a trend with everyone donating small to high amounts on the website, in order to allow more people to be tipped in such a way and make an impact on particular people’s lives. The site has now reached over $44,000 in donations according to their recent blog post.
After that video was posted, they reached $10,000 in just a single day in donations.
It is now week 2 of many, and the second person has been given the tip, as promised. This will continue going until the money has gone, but with so many donations, this could go on for a very long time.
We will keep you updated on this wonderful trending video series. It is nice when stuff like this goes viral.
