Fuck. Seriously, in america they pay you for blood donations?
Here in wales its just a charity thing as far as I know. God damn I really desperately need money right now, I would give you ALL OF MY BLOOD if you gave me just a tiny handful of cash…
Blood donations are done for charity here, it’s blood plasma that gets paid for (sometimes) because it’s so much harder to find donors/extract.
Ah? i didn’t know plasma donation was actually a thing at all! Thanks!
Onward to the Google! Here’s hoping that maybe they pay us brits too…
I just did a quick search, and it seems like it might be illegal to sell any body parts, even fluids, in the UK. But I couldn’t tell if people were saying “You can’t donate plasma for money” because it’s illegal, or because they were being complete jerks as they pointed out that the technical definition of “donate” means there is no money given. Jerks.
