$200+ A Pop

December 14, 2009

That’s the cost of a bag of blood. Not from blood, drop to drop, as paid to the volunteer – no, not at all. It’s the cost of testing, shipping, partially salaries for the chaps and chap-ettes who handle things. Plasma costs $600+. Imagine that. Now, imagine not having health insurance or any governmental aid. Now, imagine being injured by the source of your choice (car crash, falling down the stairs, freak chainsaw accident). Anything that needs a transfusion.

Don’t you feel like running out to donate some blood now?
