A MAN has revealed how he makes hundreds of pounds from donating plasma – saving countless lives in the process.
Theo Binna claims he earns up to £850 a month from the unique side hustle, suggesting the process is a lot easier than you may think.
Posting on TikTok, he revealed that he regularly visits a local plasma clinic which pays for donations.
During the process – which usually takes less than an hour – blood is collected out of the vein of one arm, he says.
A machine then separates plasma from red blood cells where it is collected in a bag before they are returned to your vein using the same needle.
Showing an image of his bank account, Theo claims he makes up to £118 per donation from the process – adding that the cash is tax free.

Liz Gramlich shared a similar story, saying she donates plasma twice a week to afford her monthly trips to Disney World.
