Have you ever thought about donating a kidney to help someone in need? This is called ALTRUISTIC (GOOD SAMARITAN) kidney donation. An altruistic (Good Samaritan) kidney donor means you are willing to donate one of your kidneys and give it to a person currently waiting for a kidney transplant. In altruistic donation, you do not necessarily know who that person is, but you know it will truly change their life. This is a very generous donation and an incredible gesture of selflessness, altruism.
