Ways To Make Money From Medical Research And Donations – Business Insider #donate #blood

6 Ways To Make Money By Selling Your Body To Science

Participants in NASA’s bed study can watch movies, play video games, and read books, as long as they don’t get out of bed for 70 days. NASA

Need some extra cash? If you want to help the science community (and potentially save some lives) there are some unconventional ways to make money by selling your body.

Below is a short list:

Sell your blood plasma
Payout (per donation): $20-$50

Plasma is the largest component of the human blood. It’s a clear liquid that contains mostly water but is also filled with enzymes, antibodies, and other proteins. The plasma is used to create therapies that treat people with blood clotting disorders, autoimmune diseases, and even burn victims. According to DonatingPlasma.org. donating plasma is often called “the gift of life,” since in most cases synthetic therapies are not available.

During plasma donation, blood is drawn and an automated machine separates the plasma from other blood components, which are returned to the donor. Most plasma collection facilities set their own compensation rate, but the average payout ranges from $20-$50 per donation. You can donate roughly once a month, according to the American Red Cross. To find a licensed and certified plasma center, click here.

Donate your sex cells
Payout for eggs (per donation): $5,000-$10,000;Payout for sperm (per donation): $30-$200

Egg donation allows women whose ovaries do not produce healthy eggs to become pregnant using another woman’s donated eggs. In the United States, eggs donors can net anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 (the upper-limit recommended by The American Society of Reproductive Medicine). At Weill Cornell, the compensation per egg donation cycle is $8,000. including a free medical screening. The medical college outlines the standard steps for egg donation. which requires about a four-week time commitment.

During the egg donation cycle, patients are injected with fertility drugs so that the ovaries make more mature eggs than normal. (Eligible women are generally between the ages of 21 and 35 sicne older women’s eggs don’t respond as well to fertility drugs). The actual egg retrieval procedure takes about 20 minutes, but may require several days of recovery. Donors should be aware of the risks involved in the egg donation process (largely related to the hormones used) before signing up.

Men can donate their sperm, although this isn’t quite as lucrative as egg donation given that it’s much easier process. Men are paid anywhere from $30 to $200 per donation, according to FertilityCommunity.com. but that can add up to more than pocket change if you donate hundreds of samples (many programs require a six-month or one-year donation commitment).

Lie in bed for 70 days straight
Payout: $18,000

NASA will pay you to stay in bed for 70 days, 24 hours a day, to simulate some of the changes that an astronaut’s body goes through in weightlessness during space flight. To apply for the bed rest study, fill out this form. If you think this sounds like an easy task, keep in mind that the selection committee is looking for participants that possess the physical and psychological traits of a real astronaut. Roni Cromwell, a senior scientist for the study told Forbes. “We want to make sure we select people who are mentally ready to spend 70 days in bed. Not everyone is comfortable with that. Not every type of person can tolerate an extended time in bed.”

On an episode of TLC’s “Extreme Cheapskates ” a Las Vegas man, Mark Parisi, has figured out a way to live a cheap life by signing up for medical trials, saving himself $750 or more, according to a trailer for the show. Most recently, Parisi agreed to donate one of his testicles, which will be replaced by an artificial one, for $35,000. During an appearance on CBS’ “The Doctors,” Parisi revealed that he would us the money to buy a Nissan 370Z.

Sign up for a paid clinical trials
Payout: Varies by program

The National Institute for Health runs a searchable database, ClincalTrials.gov. for human clinical studies around the world. Participants may be a guinea pig for new medical products, like drugs to treat high blood pressure, or be a part of observational research, like a study that records the effects of different lifestyles on heart health. Subjects are generally paid to be a part of clinical trials, and in general, the bigger the risk, the bigger the reward. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. “The amount of compensation is determined by the amount of time you will be required to dedicate to the trial, and to the level of discomfort that might be associated with medical or surgical procedures related directly to the study.”

Enroll in a psychological study
Payout: Varies by program

Paid psychological studies, such as those that examine behavior and brain function, may not generate as high of a return as clinical trials, but they are generally lower risk and require a shorter time commitment. Most research universities keep an online database of studies so people can easily sign up. For example, here’s a list of the most recent paid research studies offered by New York University. You can make $10 to watch a movie or $50 to get your brain scanned.

Most People Shouldn t Be Giving To Charity – Business Insider #donating #car #to

#which charity should i donate to


Most People Shouldn’t Be Giving To Charity

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan recently made headlines for their $25 million donation to the Centers for Disease Control Foundation to help fight Ebola.

The young Zuckerbergs aren’t the only ones giving back in a big way: Bill and Melinda Gates have donated billions of dollars of their fortune to make the world a better place, as have many of the world’s ultra-wealthy, from professional athletes, to actors, to successful entrepreneurs.

The masses believe people become wealthy through luck, good fortune, or social advantage. They think it’s only fair that the rich disperse their money to those who have less.

This socialistic philosophy is rooted in the belief that everyone is his brother’s keeper. It seems every organization needs more money these days, but until you can take care of yourself, stop trying to help others.

While giving back and helping those who are less fortunate is certainly commendable, it’s also wrong unless you can afford to do it. The masses are programmed to believe at an early age they should put the needs of others in front of their own.

We’re taught in church to tithe 10% of all that we earn. Children are encouraged to hit up their neighbors to raise funds for the school through the sales of chocolate candy bars. Police fraternal organizations, political parties, and others call us each evening asking for money. And while giving back is a wonderful thing to do, and sounds like a spirit-driven, high-level philosophy, it’s the worst advice you can get.

When you fly on a commercial airline, the first thing the flight attendant tells the passengers is, “In case of an emergency, your oxygen mask will drop down in front of you. Please secure your mask first and get the oxygen flowing before you attempt to help anyone else, including children.”

This selfish strategy has saved many lives, and the premise is simple: If you’re not taking care of you, you’re not in a position to help anyone else. You can’t give what you don’t have, and if you’re struggling to pay your bills while volunteering four nights a week, you’re probably hurting more people than you’re helping.

The philosophy of the wealthy is to get rich first, get what you want, and then help others in any way you wish. Your volunteer work, while noble, won’t touch anywhere near the number of people you could be helping by creating a new product or service that makes life easier or better for other people.

Any self-made millionaire will tell you there is a period of time in the beginning of the wealth building process where you must focus on yourself and your business in order to succeed at an uncommon level. They know this isn’t necessarily the highest level of thought, but it is necessary to create massive success. Once their fortune is secure, they are able to elevate their thinking, if they wish, to the plight and suffering of others. They don’t believe they are obligated to give back, but many choose to.

Meanwhile, the majority of people are toiling away with the best intentions while not being able to give much to themselves or others. They are capable of everything the rich think and do, but few ever break out because their beliefs are so heavily ingrained in their consciousness that it keep them blind to higher level s of thought.

Do you believe focusing on getting rich and getting what you want makes you a bad person? If so, I suggest you challenge this belief, because it will most likely prevent you from ever being rich.

Until you’re financially comfortable, able to take care of your family and do the things you want to do whenever you want to do them, leave the philanthropy to the Zuckerbergs and Gateses of the world.

As the late Duke Ellington said, “Selfishness can be a virtue. Selfishness is essential to survival, and without survival we cannot protect those whom we love more than ourselves.”

Steve Siebold is author of “How Rich People Think ” and a self-made multi-millionaire who has interviewed 1,200 of the world’s wealthiest people during the past 30 years.

Donate a dollar at the register? Checkout charity is big business for nonprofits #donation

Donate a dollar at the register? Checkout charity is big business for nonprofits

Some shoppers sheepishly grumble something about not today and make a dash for the door. Many others give the dollar, either out of guilt or a benevolent heart.

Checkout charity, as it’s sometimes called, has become big business for nonprofits and retailers. Charities love it because it raises money from the masses at little cost. Companies love it because it makes them look caring and generous, even if it comes on the backs of customers.

The concept isn’t new but has become so commonplace at grocery stores, drug stores and even restaurants that some shoppers now come to dread it.

If there’s a bunch of people in line behind me and the cashier asks me to make a donation, it makes me feel so trapped and judged, especially if it’s for the troops, said Jennie Blackburn of Redington Shores, who frequently gets solicited at Walgreens and Publix. It’s a lot of pressure.

Earlier this year, Cause Marketing Forum, which helps charities and companies on fundraising partnerships, analyzed the 63 checkout campaigns nationwide that earned at least $1 million in 2012. Combined, they raised $358.4 million — more than a dollar for every American.

Mass merchandise and big box stores (Walmart, Costco Wholesale, Kmart, JCPenney) raised the most money, followed by online retailers (eBay and Apple), supermarkets (Safeway, Publix) and restaurants (McDonald’s, Chili’s, Wendy’s).

Companies used various tactics, from direct solicitations at the checkout to asking shoppers to buy a paper pink ribbon or green shamrock to hang in the store. Penneys asked customers to round up their purchase to the next buck and raised $10.4 million in six months.

What makes checkout fundraisers so successful? Leslie Lenkowsky uses the example of Willie Sutton, the famous bank robber from New York. When asked why Sutton robbed banks, he supposedly said: That’s where the money is.

People are more inclined to give when their wallets are already open, said Lenkowsky, a professor of philanthropy and nonprofit management at Indiana University.

If you can piggyback on that and appeal for a little extra, then that’s fine, he said. It can be annoying and coercive, but the amount we raise through individual gifts is staggering.

Americans gave more than $316 billion to charity last year, according to Indiana University’s Giving USA 2013 report. The majority came from individuals; just 6 percent came from corporations.

Tough times have forced charities to look for inventive, inexpensive ways to raise money, Lenkowsky said. They are cheaper than direct mailers or special events and can continue indefinitely.

But they aren’t without pitfalls. Checkout campaigns don’t allow charities to make followup requests, an important aspect for ongoing fundraising efforts. Charities get the money but no information about the donors.

Charity watchdog experts don’t oppose checkout campaigns but advise shoppers to exercise caution and give only to well-known charities with good track records, like the American Red Cross or March of Dimes.

We encourage people to be more thoughtful, do some research and find out what the charity is accomplishing, said Daniel Borochoff, president of CharityWatch based in Chicago.

To better assure that your money is going to the right place, Borochoff recommends giving to a charity directly. Donating through a retailer runs the risk of the money getting lost or diverted. Consumers don’t get the tax deduction and have no idea when the donation actually gets to the charity.

Stores generally don’t take a cut of checkout campaigns or charge a fee to the charity. However, in some cases, charities might pay a retailer a monthly fee to put a collection box at the register to give stores incentive to keep better track of the money, Borochoff said.

Publix, for example, says it donates 100 percent of register proceeds to specific charities and doesn’t take a tax write-off on the collections because the money came from customers. This year, its Special Olympics campaign raised $2.1 million from shoppers and employees.

Pat Mundy of Spring Hill said she gives occasionally but feels uncomfortable being solicited every time, especially when a local charity or school group asks for money at the door. She also wonders why companies, if they are so eager to be good corporate citizens, don’t give more and pay their executives less.

It gets to be too much, she said. You can’t continually give. Our donation funds are limited and our general rule is we give through our church because we know where our money is going.

The very nature of checkout campaigns preys on our worst instincts, Borochoff said. We make snap decisions under pressure without doing our homework.

Customers often say it’s harder to refuse a verbal request at the checkout than a Salvation Army bell ringer standing outside a store or a Toys for Tots collection box. But say no to a Walgreens cashier asking you to buy a 99-cent candy bar to help wounded soldiers and you can feel like a schmuck.

Joe Waters, who founded selfishgiving.com, a Boston-based website about nonprofit and corporate partnerships, said point-of-sale fundraisers are here to stay but will evolve as consumers grow weary of them. He expects more campaigns that offer incentives, such as discounts, or campaigns tied to credit card machines, similar to one at PetSmart, which asks shoppers to donate to homeless pets when they swipe a credit card.

The great thing about the credit card machine is that it always asks, Waters said. It doesn’t get busy and it doesn’t forget.

Lenkowsky, the philanthropy professor, said checkout charity will continue until someone comes up with a better idea, much like what happened to telemarketing. Overall, it appeals to the good motives of people.

The fact that people are willing to give is very healthy for society, he said. (The campaigns) can look pretty manipulative, up close and personal, but the dollar you gave at the checkout could help some kid with cancer.

Checking out the top campaigns

The nation’s top 63 checkout charity campaigns raised $358.4 million for nonprofits in 2012. Here is a list of the top 20 campaigns by company. Some companies are listed more than once to reflect separate campaigns.

1. eBay $54 million

Mobile Messaging and Social Media 2015, Pew Research Center, ways to use social media


Mobile Messaging and Social Media 2015

Ways to use social media for businessIn today’s world, people — particularly young people — are continually finding and adapting new ways of communicating electronically to fit their needs. Case in point: 2015 marks the first time Pew Research Center has asked specifically about mobile messaging apps as a separate kind of mobile activity apart from cell phone texting. And already, according to a new survey, 36% of smartphone owners report using messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Kik or iMessage, and 17% use apps that automatically delete sent messages such as Snapchat or Wickr.

Both of these kinds of apps are particularly popular among young adults. Half (49%) of smartphone owners ages 18 to 29 use messaging apps, while 41% use apps that automatically delete sent messages. These apps are free, and when connected to Wi-Fi, they do not use up SMS (Short Messaging Service) or other data. Furthermore, they offer a more private kind of social interaction than traditional social media platforms such as Facebook or Twitter.

The results in this report reflect the noteworthy and rapid emergence of different kinds of communications tools serving different social needs. These new tools add to an already complex and varied terrain of online and mobile interaction.

Overall, this survey found that 85% of adults are internet users and 67% are smartphone users. Throughout this report, analysis is largely based on these groups.

Along with asking about usage of mobile messaging apps, the survey also tracked usage of a variety of social media platforms and online forums. Among the key findings:

  • The proportion of online adults who use Pinterest and Instagram has doubled since Pew Research Center first started tracking social media platform adoption in 2012. Some 31% of online adults use Pinterest (up from 15% in 2012), while 28% use Instagram (up from 13% in 2012). However, none of the social media platforms measured in this survey experienced a statistically significant increase in usage between September 2014 and April 2015.
  • In terms of user engagement, the proportion of Instagram, Pinterest and LinkedIn users who use each respective site daily has increased significantly since September 2014. Fully 59% of Instagram users, 27% of Pinterest users and 22% of LinkedIn users visit these platforms daily.
  • Facebook remains the most popular social media site – 72% of online adults are Facebook users, amounting to 62% of all American adults. Growth on the site has largely plateaued. There has not been a significant change in the overall share of users since 2012. Those on Facebook remain highly engaged with 70% saying they log on daily, including 43% who do so several times a day.
  • Some 15% of internet users read or comment in discussion forums such as reddit, Digg or Slashdot, while 10% use the blogging website Tumblr. Young adults are particularly likely to use both Tumblr and discussion forums more generally, and men are more likely than women to participate in discussion forums online.

How our site works

We want to show you short term business loans from as many lenders as possible, so you have plenty of choice. Not all lenders want to be included on comparison websites, so we can’t promise to show you loans from every single one. We’ve looked at how much it would cost to borrow £10,000 over 6 months, including fees, and we’ve ranked the lenders from the cheapest to the most expensive. You can find out more about how we work here.

Advantages of short-term business loans

The main advantage of opting for a short-term business loan is that you know your business will only have to make repayments for a limited period of time. You will also usually pay less interest overall than if you opted to repay what you owe over a much longer term, such as five years.

Disadvantages of a short-term business loans

Choosing to take out a short-term business loan may mean that you will be able to pay off what you owe quickly, but bear in mind that your repayments will be much higher than if you opted to repay your long over a medium or long-term period. Interest rates can be very high on short-term borrowing, so it’s worth comparing lots of different loans to ensure you find the right deal for your business’s needs.
