Jim Gorbunows, with some help from Mother Nature and his brother, Jason, built a 5-foot kidney from snow just before Christmas, according to his Facebook page.
 
Next to the frozen kidney, family members placed a sign that read, “Kidney Wanted.”
 
Jim was diagnosed with Type I diabetes when he was 7 years old and has already undergone one previous kidney transplant, according to his donation page at Transplants.org.
 
According to his Facebook page, Jim had received dozens of emails and phone calls from people all over the country willing to donate a kidney.
