Due to a decrease in donations after Labor Day Weekend and a spike in patient need, we are urging all eligible volunteer donors, especially Type O (Rh-positive or Rh-negative), to donate now. Additional platelet donations are also needed this week.
Please contact the Blood Center to schedule a time to give at a donor center or mobile blood drive near you as soon as possible. Call (800) 747-5401, or schedule online at www.bloodcenterimpact.org or via our Blood Center Impact App. Thank you!
Come in to donate during one of the weeks listed below and you will be automatically entered to win a $500 VISA Gift Card.
2019 Drawing Donation Dates(Winners listed in italics)
The prize is a $500 Visa gift card.
Contest participants will be asked to provide contact information via their blood donation registration process. This is to ensure the Blood Center’s ability to contact the winner by cell phone or email.
The Blood Center will select the winner from a list of registered donors pulled from MVRBC’s donor database. For each drawing time period (see listing above), all prospective donors who register to give blood will be included in the data set that will be used to select the winner.
Prospective donors who registered to donate more than one once during this period will be included in the entry pool multiple times (once for each time the donor is registered within the specified time periods above).
The “Critical Week” promotion is intended to promote blood donation during the dates in which the rate of blood donation decreases while patient need at hospitals remains the same.
The drawing is open to eligible blood donors who register to give blood at MVRBC, CBSI or CICBC blood drives and Donor Centers. Note: registration for blood donation takes place prior to pre-donation screening. Prospective donors who register for donation and are subsequently deferred from giving blood for any reason will be included in the drawing.
Employees of Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center and their spouses and children are not eligible for the prize drawing.
The winner for each drawing will be notified by e-mail and phone on the business day following the eligible period, dates listed above. Once the winner for each drawing has been contacted and has agreed to accept the prize, the winner's name will be listed above next to the drawing date that the won.
ACCEPTANCE OF PRIZE AND TAXES
The winner must agree to accept the prize and to have their name and photograph used in Blood Center promotional materials (ie. social media posts, media news release and an article on the Blood Center’s web site). Each winner has three days after notification to accept their prize before we will choose another winner”.
By accepting the prize, the winner acknowledges that he or she will be responsible to pay all taxes and fees associated with winning the prize, as applicable by law.
While all registered donors will be eligible to win the prize, those under the age of 18 or who have a designated legal guardian will be required to have their parent or legal guardian provide written consent to accept the prize.
If the donor chooses to decline the prize, MVRBC will choose a new winner by repeating the process described in the SELECTION OF WINNER section above.
