A Craigslist ad has landed a Florida woman a new kidney.

According to television station WPTV, a 28-year-old woman has a new kidney after a stranger who lived nearby saw her ad on Craigslist and agreed to donate one of hers.

The woman received more than 800 responses, according to the WPTV story, but the one that counted came from a 23-year-old woman who lived only a few miles away. The transplant surgery was performed Tuesday, according to the report.
