Sell Your Plasma (Not Your TV): Tip-of-the-Day #54


If you're looking to make some quick cash you can always donate your plasma, the clear yellowish fluid portion of the blood that transports water and nutrients to all the cells in the body and is used for transfusions to people who have suffered shock, burns or trauma.

1. Check with the Yellow Pages or a nearby college campus for the closest plasma collection center, blood bank or blood collection facility.
2. Be sure to eat something two hours before you donate plasma (I like to keep Odwalla nutrition bars around) and drink lots of water to avoid feeling light-headed, which is common after donating blood.
3. Anticipate spending a few hours at the center the first time you go. You'll undergo a physical exam, be screened for drugs, and be asked to sign a waiver.

You can earn up to $35 for each donation (twice a week max).

My boyfriend made his way through college donating his blood. 'Nuff said.
