A living donor can give a directed donation, meaning that their donated organ will go to a friend, family member, or person in need that they name. Some extremely altruistic people give non-directed donations that go to someone they don’t know at all. Another option is paired donation, which lets a donor give an organ to someone they don’t know in exchange for a similar donation to a loved one.
