    Money for Blood Donation

    hello eveyone! a but of an unconventional question, but here we go!


    i saw in the movie "Pursuit of Happyness" that the main character got paid for donating his blood. Now, i was wondering if this was still true (the movie was set in the 1980s, things can change) and where i could find facilities that do that (i live in the US, FYI)...

    why am i asking this? pure and simple, i'm in college... the only thing i can really spare is blood...

    thanks for the help!

    Some centers pay you for donation and some don't. For ones that do, it's usually around $15 to $30. There are a lot of blood/plasma donation centers located near colleges, and a lot in the Midwest. Try doing a google search for specifics and centers near you, as there are some restrictions to blood/plasma donation.

    that is a great idea! being a uni student.. I can see where you are coming from! But I don't think they have anything like that in Aust!

    but then again..I would like the think that the fact that my blood saved a life would be enough incentive to give blood..^_^"

    Donating Egg and/or Sperm will get you money for those text books, assuming you guys are healthy.

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    hey there,
    well I don't know about the U.S but in S.A,
    not only do you not get paid for donating blood or plasma,
    but if you are in a serious injury you have to buy your own blood back.
    Can you imagine this, you are lying on the hospital bed and the account comes to you and you see that you are paying for your own blood, Its ridicules is it not?

    Yay 50th post in a couple of days already

    Why would you even want to do this, the low pay isn't worth it. If i donate blood it would be to help ppl. Just get a part time job, it pays better.
