Earn Gas Money, Donate Plasma (Save Lives)

Students at BYU-Idaho are donating their plasma  for $20-$25 each time to help defray the cost of gasoline, pretty amazing. In reading more about it on the Red Cross website , the process only takes 20 minutes longer than a regular blood donation and your platelets replenish after 48 hours.
So you won’t have to give your arm, leg or first born for a tank of gas but some platelets will do. Selling critical body fluids for cash just seems a little (a lot) wrong to me.
