#04: Pre-Register for the Blood Drive!

Comic-Con International 2017 Toucan Tip of the Day

We know your time at Comic-Con International is bound to be busy, but please consider reserving an hour or so to help save lives by the simple act of donating blood as part of our annual Comic-Con International Robert A. Heinlein Blood Drive, which celebrates its 41st anniversary this year! The Robert A. Heinlein Blood Drive began at San Diego Comic-Con back in 1977, and 148 pints of blood were collected that first year. As Comic-Con has grown, so has our blood drive: Over the past 40 years, we’ve collected 17,947 pints of blood from Comic-Con attendees, with 1,295 pints alone collected last year! You can schedule an appointment NOW by clicking here to visit our Blood Drive page and booking in advance for whichever day is best for you. Blood Drive participants receive goodie bags and an amazing Guardians of the Galaxy T-shirt, plus are entered into daily drawings for some fantastic prizes. Take a few moments to give the gift of life at Comic-Con 2017!
