#04: Pre-Register for the Blood Drive!
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 42nd 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 41 years, we’ve collected 19,802 pints of blood from Comic-Con attendees, with a new record set last year all thanks to you: 1,855 pints! 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 free T-shirt (which we’ll reveal SOON), plus are entered into daily drawings for some fantastic prizes. Take a few moments to give the gift of life at Comic-Con 2018 and “pay it forward” as Heinlein suggested!
