Donate your DNA and earn $$$.



a friend of mine shared this site in a group i belong to and the site is really pretty cool. register to be in the DNAsimple database and if a researcher requests your DNA you get $50! your DNA will always be anonymous and you can say you helped science! even if you don't have any conditions/illnesses and are in perfect health researchers still need control groups for each study. as they put it, DNA donations equal faster cures. help speed up science and get compensated along the way! if a researcher is interested in your DNA they will mail you a saliva kit and pay you $50--it is completely free to donors.

registering takes only a few minutes and is currently available to residents of canada and the united states. DNA simple is based out of philadelphia, PA and you can check out their fb page.

REGISTER HERE.

from their site:

What exactly is DNAsimple?
DNAsimple is the match-maker of the genetic research world. If there is a study out there that needs participants like you, we'll tell you about it and let you decide if you want to participate or not. If you decide to participate, we'll pay you for doing so! Even better, our match-making platform is 100% anonymous, so no one can see your identity. 
For donors, the basic steps are:
     1. Sign up for a free account at DNAsimple
     2. Provide basic demographic information, such as age and height
     3. Fill out a brief medical history
     4. Wait a few seconds while we check for studies you can donate to
     5. If you don't qualify now, we'll automatically notify you when you do
     6. Review any study you match and decide if you want to participate
     7. If you participate, complete a saliva kit at home and be compensated!

so there it is. it's free, it's private and if chosen you get $50--plus the added bonus of knowing you are helping science!
