Compared with when I was contemplating being a kidney donor, now a Google search offers a bewildering array of information on living donation. Digging through the often conflicting, frequently out-of-date, material is overwhelming.  Instead of googling living donation or kidney donation or whatever, check out the following major organizationssites. They’re clear, authoritative, and fairly easy to navigate. (Have you discovered a great site I haven’t included? Let me know!)
