CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- You can make thousands of dollars and save lives at the same time by doing something you do everyday.
A non-profit called OpenBiome is interested in your poop.
They take samples of that and process it so it can be given to patients infected with a certain bacteria.
They pay $40 per sample. There's a $50 bonus if you come in five days a week.
Do that every week, and you can make $13,000 in a year.
The catch is you have to be really healthy in order for your waste to be worthy.
"It's harder to become a donor than it is to get into MIT," OpenBiome co-founder Mark Smith told the Washington Post.
Of the 1,000 or so potential donors who've expressed interest on his Web site over the past two years, Smith said only about 4 percent have made the cut. The screening process can cost up to $5,000, so when someone makes it through, the program holds on tight.
"We get most of our donors to come in three or four times a week, which is pretty awesome," Smith said. "You're usually helping three or four patients out with each sample, and we keep track of that and let you know."
