CHICAGO, July 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Montway Auto Transport®, a leading car shipping company in the U.S. donates to Nathan Saavedra's Fund and to the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois.

The concept of paying it forward has been around for long time. Yet how often are we the originators of the deed?

Ask that question of Montway Auto Transport's employee, Kalin Koychev, a 33-year-old native of Bulgaria who currently resides in Wheeling, IL. Koychev read an article in the local suburban newspaper "Daily Herald" about a young boy that was in need of a kidney transplant. Without any hesitation, and with the support of his family, Koychev volunteered to get tested and see if he was a match. As the cosmos conspires often, Koychev was a match. Without ever having surgical procedure in his life before, Koychev dove in to help the child. With his faith and family behind him, Koychev donated his kidney to Nathan Saavedra on June, 21, 2012. Everyone is doing well now.

Koychev's original act of selflessness and paying it forward inspired many people. Koychev's coworkers at Montway Auto Transport were unaware of his act of kindness until just days before his surgery when he informed his employer that he will need some time off. Moved by Koychev's action,  the company offered him full pay and benefits until he recovers. In addition, Montway made a donation to Nathan Saavedra's fund at Harris Bank to aid the family in paying for their hospital bill, and to the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois to support a Summer Kidney Camp for kids with chronic kidney disease, on dialysis or living with kidney transplant. One act of kindness motivating another.

Mihail Mihailov, CEO of Montway Auto Transport said, "Today it is very rear to witness such acts of humanity. This really touched us all at Montway and we felt we had to magnify the good deed.  Kalin is a very humble person and we are happy to have him on board."
