Can I donate a kidney while I'm 13?

I live in Australia not the United States. I know that I would probably need consent of my parents but is it legal and allowed? I really want to help someone by donating a kidney to them. Please answer nicely



I mean a living donation

    You cant donate a kidney until you are 18 and then only after you have gone through immense counseling (especially if its not a family member you are donating to)

    In my opinion medically your are too young for this.Your are young and your more emotional then the matured person.Ability to use mind is less.

    i think you need parent consent at that age and your parents most probably wont let you do that
