DENVER - Nathan Buss is hoping for really good tips when he goes into work Tuesday night at Session Kitchen. But Buss doesn't want the money for himself.

Once a week, Buss donates 100 percent of his tips to charity.

Currently, he is donating the money he makes off of dinner bills at a Denver restaurant to the foundation started by his aunt and uncle, Kathryn and David Szott.

The Szott Foundation supports families of children with life-threatening illnesses by financially supporting the parents, allowing them to take a break from full-time work to be with their children.

The nonprofit organization was started when the Szotts lost their two children, Andrew and Abby. Both of Buss' cousins died from pediatric cancers.

Buss wants to make this an ongoing project with various charities benefiting. He is already planning that Project Pave will be the next recipient of his weekly tip donation.

Project Pave works to empower youth to end the cycle of relationship violence. PAVE does this through education and youth leadership programs.

Buss hopes to inspire other servers to follow his lead. He has reached out to the restaurant community and other nonprofits with the hope of creating more philanthropic partnerships.

Buss has singled out Tuesday night's as when he collects his tips for charity.
