CHICAGO — What’s your tip of choice? Money, jewelry, tickets… a new lease on life? Abdul Faraj, a Chicago limousine driver, received the best tip of his life when Minnesota businessman and long-time customer Dave Baker donated his kidney to the ailing Faraj.

Faraj, who suffers from diabetes, went through dialysis three times a week, but his kidneys were still failing. After learning of Faraj’s health problems, Baker, who is out of the hospital and expected to make a full recovery, realized they had the same blood type and offered to become a kidney donor.

“This was an opportunity to stop, slow down, take a look around and try to help someone,” said Baker.
