For the first time walking in as we speak. This is saying a lot coming from someone who is terrified of needles

    Everyone here calls it donating, but it's not unpaid per say. Good flex money fund, just make sure you stay on top of your immune system...you are a lot more susceptible while "donating"

    Ya its called donating here what they are really paying you for is your time. And each visit they pay more. Like first of the month is 20 second is 35. Eventually twice a week for 4 weeks straight you make like 265ish. It taes bout an hour to hour 15 to do it so.

    I donate platelets (have an ungodly count) You accrue points and can get cheap prizes and such. They are always calling me to do another donation.

    I donate blood on a semi regular basis to the red cross. Used to do the double red but that hurts my arms for some reason.

    A round of applause to all who donate, for cash or not, it is A great thing that you are doing. I personally can't give because of my medicine load and an insane fear of needles. Still my hats off to you.
