Matt Neal, a 26-year-old from Michigan, has two failing kidneys as a result of having Berger’s disease. He is currently on dialysis at his local hospital, however Michigan has a 5-7 year wait for Kidney transplants, and Neal is way down on the list. In hopes of speeding up his chances of getting a donor, Neal is offering up something he thinks will get prospective donors’ attention: a pair of sold-out Kanye West Yeezy Boosts.
I mean… how much do people really want those shoes?!
Since posting, Neal has clarified that he knows selling merchandise in exchange for organs is illegal, but honestly, who the hell cares?! People are now apparently offering up their kidneys for free.
Way to go, Matt! Keep the shoes AND get a new kidney. Sounds like the best of both worlds to us.
