Since his brother’s death a year ago, Seth Collins has been touring the country giving $500 tips to restaurant servers, the last request in his brother’s will. He aims to hit all 50 states by the end of the year. Collins speaks to Weekend Edition Sunday host Rachel Martin.

Making a living serving food in a restaurant can be a tough business. With most of your income coming from tips, customer service is of paramount importance. If you treat the customers particularly well, you might get a generous tip. But at most restaurants that is not likely to get anywhere near the $500 mark. But for one frequent diner, a $500 tip is now the norm. Seth Collins is travelling around the country giving $500 to restaurant servers in every state – and he’s carrying out these seemingly random acts of generosity as a tribute to his brother who died a year ago today. Seth Collins joins us from his home in Kentucky. Seth, thanks for being here.
