Raise Funds for Travel by Volunteering for Medical Trials

Getting paid for laying around in your dressing gown munching pizza after being pumped full of drugs sounds a little too good to be true but this is what His Dudeness Ralf Kreuze does to finance his travels. A fan of the champion of the housecoat, Jeff Lebowski, Ralf is a serial drug trial volunteer. Describing himself as a plain old lazy bum he has travelled to Albania, India, Iran, Pakistan, Oman, Azerbaijan and Nepal, among other places, on the money he receives from the inconvenience of being stuck with needles.

    Interesting way to finance travel. I couldn’t get past the needles and veins. I can’t even look at my own without feeling like I will pass out.

      I sympathize. For sure it’s not for everyone. I had to have a lumber punch (fluid drawn from the spine) when I was 16. As long as I don’t look ordinary injections are easier to endure since that horror.

    I think the issue is not whether or not you can stick needles as they , in general, only have to insert 1 cannula from which they can inject into and take blood from. The bigger issue is the unknown damage it can do. Those drugs may exacerbate a previously unknown underlying disease. Indeed those holiday trips could end up being very costly.

      Hi Kim, this is a how to article. We are not hiring ourselves and I doubt anyone involved in hiring volunteers will be passing by looking to recruit here. Try the links above to find active medical trials (though this article is nearly 5 years old so I’m sure some will be duds by now). I have also removed your address as I’m not sure how good an idea it is to put it where anyone can see it.
