HOW MUCH COULD I SELL MY KIDNEY FOR? 

Have you ever thought about ways to make extra income? Some people will only work ONE job and value their time. No matter what. Maybe they decide to downsize...or maybe they are lucky enough to make the kind of money that ONE job is enough.

People like me, however; have to hustle. I don't live a lavish lifestyle by any means, but there are things that I have to have just to do my JOB. I need a car. I need a computer. I need the Internet. I need a smartphone. All of those things are required for my job, so no matter what I make, I have to make enough to pay for job expenses as well as still find a way to pay for everything else.

ODD JOBS? OR SELL A KIDNEY?

I'm a musician, so it helps that I'm able to play music on the side for a few extra bucks. Some people are crafty or have a food truck because they can cook amazing delicious creations. But what if you don't really have any of those talents? Or what if...by chance...you're getting tired of working side gigs  all the time?

This thought entered my brain. I'm not saying I would really consider it, but;  I wonder how much a middle-aged fairly healthy woman's kidney would go for on the black market? I was curious enough to look and see if OTHER people have considered selling their kidneys to get out of debt, and apparently, they HAVE thought about it, and they HAVE done it...regrettably in most cases.

First of all...It IS NOT legal in the United States to sell your organs;  SO DON'T DO IT!!!!!  However, there are some websites out there, that say if you DID sell it on the black market,  it may sell for around $160,000! That sounds incredible, right?! Here's the kicker. That money is NOT going to YOU, and here's why.

HOW MUCH MONEY WILL YOU GET FOR YOUR KIDNEY?

If you actually considered selling your kidney because someone told you it would sell for $160,000, you need to know where that money would be going. According to an article I found online, most people who sell their kidneys on the black market get somewhere between $1,000 to $10,000 for their kidneys. Most of that money will be going to the person who sets up the transaction, the surgeries, and the pay-offs to keep it quiet.

Yeah...This is BAD...Don't give up your kidney. Besides being ethically wrong, you're probably giving up your health as well. Black market surgery? Would you trust someone on the black market to cut you open?
