FAQ

How do I get a VIP Voucher?
READ CAREFULLY: To gain a VIP voucher / credential you must donate at a Music Saves Lives sponsored drive. You can find drives posted on the map on our website at http://musicsaveslives.org. Vouchers are given at the blood drive by the blood centers OR you may receive a THANK FOR DONATING EMAIL from the blood center. That email sent to you will have a link to our on-line voucher credential system where you fill out some info and the OFFICIAL VOUCHER / Credential is emailed to you. If you are donating at an official MSL drive through the American Red Cross you will get an email to print your voucher online. You may keep a digital copy of the voucher on your smartphone. WE will be scanning everyone.

When are the blood drives posted on the map?

Drives are posted starting April 15th.  You can sign up from our map that will direct you to call the blood center or use their on-line sign up system.

How old do you have to be to donate?
Age and requirements vary from state to state. Check www.aabb.org for requirements in your area or call your local blood center.

Can I donate at a non-Music Saves Lives drive and bring proof?
NO.  The only drives that count for the MSL vouchers / credentials are the ones listed on the map at http://musicsaveslives.org or if your city has instructions otherwise. You must follow the on line instructions based on the city selected in the map and where you donate.  No Photos excepted this year.

What if I cannot donate?
You may have someone else donate for you and give you their voucher.

Where is the blood drive in MY CITY?
To find a drive in your area, click on the map at the MusicSavesLives.org site then select the Vans Warped Tour date you are going to and follow the directions. If there aren’t any drives listed or no instructions yet, sit tight, we are working on that city and posting drives or information soon.  We will not leave you out. We promise.  If you are within 3 weeks of the tour date and still no drives posted or instructions email us.

Please host a blood drive in my city.
We are working to set up more blood drives in more places than ever. You can help by running a drive in your area. Please email icare@musicsaveslives.org if this is something you would be interested in.

Does the VIP pass include a ticket into the show?
The voucher is good for a VIP upgrade that you receive at the show. You must purchase your own ticket. Once inside the venue, you can redeem your Voucher for a VIP wristband at our booth. The first 100 vouchers turned into to the MSL booth on the Vans Warped Tour date in your city gets a MSL Backstage Upgrade.   This backstage access can be limited based on security needs and the venue set up.  If you get a backstage upgrade, please see the posted access areas that we post at our booth each day.

I already donated, does that count?
It’s really awesome that you are a regular donor, but the only drives that count for the VIP Pass are the ones we give the instructions on listed at the MSL drive map, http://musicsaveslives.orgPlease make sure and follow the instructions for your area.

I want to volunteer for you at a show!
We are always looking for new, fun, energetic, outgoing volunteers to represent Music Saves Lives. If you are interested in volunteering, please email ihelp@musicsaveslives.org and let them know that you are want to help out.

I donated blood at Red Cross and never got my Voucher.
You will receive an email from the Red Cross with your voucher link 2-3 days before your Warped Tour date.  Print off the voucher or show a screen shot at our booth.  You can Call 1800RedCross and confirm all this.  You may want to call just to make sure they have your email address correct.

Can I donate money and get a VIP pass?
Yes and No.  We always need donations so we can cover our overhead.  As for VIP for a monetary donation, no, but in some cases we have extra VIP and you will need to ask at our booth, or where we are set up at the time of the event.   Please donate here and support our hard work at saving lives.
