A server at a restaurant in California said he "couldn't stop shaking" for almost an hour after receiving a tip of more than $ 1,800 on Tuesday night.
Kathleen Moreno, who is waiting at the tables at Wildwood Kitchen and Bar in Sacramento, says she now plans to donate some of the money to the forest fire relief efforts in Australia.
"I strongly believe in karma. What you put into the world is what you recover," he told KCRA.

Moreno received a very generous tip on Tuesday, during dinner service at Wildwood Kitchen and Bar, reports KCRA. He said he initially thought the client had left only $ 36.22 on a check of $ 165.78, a generous tip that would raise the total amount to $ 200, before realizing that the client had left a total of $ 2,000.
"And then I looked more closely, and there was an extra zero," Moreno said, commenting on the $ 1,836.22 tip. "I couldn't stop shaking for about 30 minutes to an hour."

Moreno, a culinary student who is working on two jobs to pay tuition, then confirmed that while she will keep some of the money and use it to pay for car repairs, she will also donate it to the victims of Australian wildfires.
A representative of Wildwood Kitchen and Bar was not immediately available to offer further comments.
