    Annamarie received a life-saving kidney from a Starbucks barista Sandie in 2008

    In 2008, Annamarie Ausnes received a life saving kidney from an unlikely source... Sandie Anderson, her Starbucks barista!

    I heard that it is still very cold some part of USA (not here though.. in L.A. it will be 75 F today :+), hopefully this story will makes you warm.
