Huge tip helps Richmond waitress having rough year

RICHMOND, Va. -- Some of you may have had a bad year, but it might not have been as bad as the year Missy Summers experienced.

The server at McLean's lost her brother to a boating accident and had a nephew paralyzed in a moped accident.

On top of that, she took in a friend's two children when they had nowhere else to go.

Upon hearing her story, Rob Cardwell decided to make her his CBS 6 Month of Giving recipient.

The CBS 6 Month of Giving is underway. Every day through December, a CBS 6 team member will surprise someone in the community with a random act of kindness.

Missy said the extra money will help, especially around the holidays.

The CBS 6 Month of Giving is possible due to a partnership with Union Bank and Trust.
