Boisean Donates Kidney To Stranger

Item: Boise organ donor gives stranger a life-saving gift: The kidney she thought was for a co-worker's daughter still goes to 'somebody's family member'/Idaho Statesman

More Info: Dolores "Lola" Macias of Boise celebrated Valentine's Day by giving a kidney to a stranger Friday. Many people have called her remarkable, but she doesn't see it. "I honestly don't think of it that way," the 49-year-old said. "It was simply a nice gesture to get tested, but when you have to make a decision, is it really a decision? How would you not do it?"

Question: Would you donate a kidney?
