ya its a great idea . U can donate 1 of ur kidneys . it wont affect ur health as person can survive even with 1 kidney.
Bt the problem that may arise is suitablity of ur kidney to ur aunt , If it suits her then only u can donate her . for this they do some tests of ur blood to take final decision,.
