Earn Gas Money, Donate Plasma (Save Lives)

Posted By Jim On 05/01/2006 @ 1:48 pm In Frugal Living,General,Philanthropy | 56 Comments

Students at BYU-Idaho are donating their plasma [3] for $20-$25 each time to help defray the cost of gasoline, pretty amazing. In reading more about it on the Red Cross website [4], 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.
