donate plasma, save lives.

Recovered from COVID-19?

Your Plasma can help patients fight COVID-19.

PlasmaSaves.org is a not-for-profit started in direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic that facilitates the donation of COVID-19 convalescent plasma to save lives.

PlasmaSaves.org pays it forward by donating $100 per plasma donation in the donor’s name to God’s Love We Deliver New York or any other Food is Medicine Coalition member nearest to the donor. God’s Love We Deliver New York and the Food is Medicine Coalition provide medically tailored meals to those living with serious illness.

PlasmaSaves

how it saves

If you have recovered from COVID-19, youmay be able to help patients currently fighting the infection by donating your plasma. As a result of your infection, your plasma now contains COVID-19 antibodies, which is one way your immune system fought the virus when you were sick. Your plasma is now known as COVID-19 convalescent plasma.

how it works

Check your donor eligibility and all FAQ’s via CovidPlasma.Org

You must make the plasma donation to a non-profit blood bank that does not itself pay for your donation and the blood blank will need to provide a receipt to you.

Check your donor locations via American Association of Blood Banks

our mission

Last May, our brother/brother-in-law, Michael Brekka, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and given 90 days to live. We tried everything in our power to help him. It was sadly not enough, and he lost his battle. After his passing, our efforts left us feeling grief-stricken, and completely helpless.

A familiar feeling of helplessness returned in March when COVID-19 hit our beloved hometown of New York City. Witnessing so many lives lost due to COVID-19 in NYC, we were compelled to take action. Watching cities across America become crippled emotionally, socially and economically motivated us to take action. So many families have experienced loss and hardship in America, and around the world, due to this novel virus.

It’s our hope that we significantly contribute to the greater effort of COVID-19 convalescent plasma collection to assist in the recovery of COVID-19 patients and save lives. And, in doing so, motivating others to donate and join us — all while paying it forward to the food is medicine mission.
