This was followed by a general knowledge based Quiz, again on Blood Donation related facts & various misconceptions.

Some really ingenious & humorous answers were received, showcasing the creative streak of quite a few participants.The games concluded with Figure Me Out, wherein a hidden code needed to be deciphered to get the answer, which too delivered a message, Join The Movement.
