The Red Cross reports that, each day, America needs about 36,000 units of red blood cells, 7,000 units of platelets and 10,000 units of plasma. Many medicines and advance therapies depend on blood and plasma donations.
The Red Cross reports that it is illegal in the US for a company to pay for blood for transfusions; However, since plasma donations take more time, there is a growing number of private clinics that compensate people for giving plasma.
I am interested in the health of local communities. I saw an ad for plasma donations. After giving plasma, they get a prepaid visa and realized that this is a good thing. The plasma is used to make medicine and money flows into local communities; So I began researching the blood and plasma donation system and made this page.
