Amber is a single mother who has donated with Octapharma Plasma for about eight months. She started donating because she wanted a way to fund vacations with her daughter, and liked the idea of being able to make money while making a difference.
Amber researched several plasma companies before she started donating. Once she found Octapharma Plasma’s website, she became comfortable with the donation process, confident that donating was safe and positive she’d found her donation centre. Amber donates during her lunch break once or twice every week. She finds the overall donation experience very relaxing because the staff are always extremely conscious of both her time and health. Donating plasma fits easily around Amber’s full-time job, and also lets her focus on family time with her daughter. In 2016 she used the money she made from donating to take her daughter to Walt Disney World.
As part of her job Amber works on a health and wellness committee. She constantly educates and encourages her colleagues to donate, saying: “Don’t be scared to donate, because it’s great to be directly helping patients in need of plasma products, and at the same time earning some extra money.”
