    Donor must present the Pledge Card for donation to count.

    Surprising and fun challenges to promote blood donation.
    Each Wednesday at Noon, Challenges will be presented on the steps of McMicken Hall.
    Challenges must be "proven" with online, social media evidence.  For example, photographs of your group completing the challenge.

Q:  Can only members of my group donate blood and vote for my organization?
A:  No.  Anyone...your members, your brother, your great aunt, your next-door-neighbor, your mechanic...can donate blood in the name of your group.

Q:  If someone forgets to turn in their pledge card, when registering to donate, can we go back later and have Hoxworth enter our group?
A:  No.  In order to tally points correctly, everyone must turn in a pledge card before the actual blood donation.

Q:  Can supporters of my group donate blood in another county and still vote for my organization? 
A:  Yes.  Your supporters can donate anywhere in the Hoxworth service area, which includes 17 counties in Southeastern Indiana, Northern Kentucky and Southwestern Ohio.  If they mention your nonprofit, your organizations will receive those points.  However, ONLY donations made at a Hoxworth neighborhood donor center can be counted.
