Parents literally giving their blood for higher test scores for their children

From the "you can't make this stuff up" file, here's China:
In July, Pujiang county in Zhejiang province announced a program allowing children of parents who gave blood to get extra points on their high school entrance exams. Under the program, local children of “gold medal” donors offering 8,000 milliliters would be granted an extra three points, while children of “silver medal” donors and “bronze medal” donors who gave comparatively less blood could be given an additional two and one points, respectively.
