#02/SDCC 2014: Be a Superhero and Help Save Lives … Visit the Blood Drive!

Comic-Con International 2014 Toucan Tip of the Day

We know your time at Comic-Con International is bound to be busy, but if you can, reserve an hour or so and help save some lives by the simple act of donating blood as part of our annual Comic-Con International/Robert A. Heinlein Blood Drive. The Robert A. Heinlein Blood Drive began at San Diego Comic-Con back in 1977. That first year, 148 pints of blood were collected, and as the convention has grown so has our blood drive. Over the past 37 years, we’ve collected 13,985 pints of blood from Comic-Con attendees! You can schedule an appointment NOW by visiting our Blood Drive page and booking in advance for whichever day is best for you. Blood Drive participants also get a goodie bag and some great freebies from our friends at HBO’s True Blood, plus are entered into daily drawings for some fantastic prizes. Take a few moments to give the gift of life at Comic-Con 2014!

Remember your first, best, and most accurate source for information—including our daily Toucan Tip—is right here on the Comic-Con website and Toucan, the only OFFICIAL SDCC blog. Bookmark Toucan and the Comic-Con Front Page for the latest updates for the big show!
