Waiter At Red Lobster, Tyler Segraves, Donates His Tips To Moore, Oklahoma, Tornado Victims (PHOTO)

Here's a tip for Tyler Segraves: Keep doing what you're doing.

Segraves, a 30-year-old server at a Red Lobster in Oklahoma City, has been donating his tips to victims of Monday's tornado. His cause got a viral boost when he tweeted a photo of $220 that diners gave him Monday night for a $158.65 meal.

"Told my last table I'm donating all my tips from today to the tornado victims," Segraves, aka @OSUfreak82, wrote on Twitter. "And this is what they left."

(Story continues below.)

"It was such an amazing blessing from them," Segraves told The Huffington Post in an email.

But Tyler has had an impact far beyond where he works. His online nod to generous patrons has ignited his Twitter account with retweets from friends and well-wishers inspired by his good deed.

And his generosity seems to be infectious. "S/O to table 19 for paying for another tables food that lost everything in the tornado!" Tyler tweeted on Tuesday. "Such generosity! I love Oklahoma!"

Oklahoma is loving you, too, @OSUfreak82.

He isn't the only one pitching in. An Oklahoma relief T-shirt from Shop Good is already selling like crazy (100% of the proceeds will go to tornado relief), and Oklahoma City music joint Blue Door has already scheduled a benefit, reports NewsOK.
