Expect to see this good samaritan on Ellen's show: she gave a kidney to a total stranger

 A Minnesota toddler is getting a kidney next month thanks to a total stranger who stumbled onto a Facebook post. Donor Christy Harding of Jacksonville, Florida, said that she happened onto a Facebook page seeking help for 2-year-old Arianna Moore. Harding has a 2-year-old daughter herself, so she paused to read the post. "It said, 'If you're Type-O blood, you could be her hero,'" and she thought, "I am type O blood." Harding confirmed she was a match with Arianna's hospital, then told the girl's family she would do it. Surgery is scheduled for May 7, and in the meantime Harding has set up a GoFundMe page to send her new friend to Disney World after the surgery.
