Writer's Block: Kindness of Strangers

Would you donate a kidney or bone marrow to a stranger?

Bone marrow? Yes. A kidney? Probably not. Bone marrow, I believe, grows back. I can't grow another kidney. What if a family member (including my husband) ended up needing a kidney transplant and I was a perfect match, only I couldn't donate because I'd given it away to some stranger? Also, it's not exactly a risk free operation.

Bone marrow, yes, but I couldn't donate a kidney, mine are not in good shape.
