article imageThe Hugging Man To Give Stranger a Kidney

By KJ Mullins     Sep 22, 2008 in Lifestyle
Juan Mann started the Free Hugs campaign, and he is donating one of his own kidneys to a complete stranger, a Yahoo report stated Sunday.
Mann, 26, of Sydney, Australia plans on having the surgery next year to donate a kidney to a stranger.
Mann, which is not his real name, faces both physical and psychiatric testing in hospital before he will be allowed to undergo the donation. The process will be filmed and broadcast at a later date online.
Mann is quoted on Yahoo as to his reasoning for such a bold statement;
"I will never meet the (recipient); I will never know if the transplant is a success or a failure; I will never know if my kidney kills the person," Mann said.
"Apparently once you give your kidney you will never feel whole.
"(But) I'll get a cool scar and apparently chicks dig scars."
This is one man who walks the walk of his personal values.
