Every morning in the 30 days leading up to Comic-Con (from June 18 to July 17), we’re going to offer our “Toucan Tip of the Day,” a tiny tidbit of terrific information that we hope will help you enjoy the show just a little bit better.

We’ve updated our Blood Drive page and you can now pre-schedule a time to donate blood while at Comic-Con. The Comic-Con Robert A. Heinlein Blood Drive, held in conjunction with the San Diego Blood Bank, has been a part of the show since 1977. Over the past 36 years, we’ve collected 12,488 pints of blood from Comic-Con attendees ... and we’re not even vampires! (Well ... most of us aren’t.) Be a hero at Comic-Con and donate the gift of life to this most worthy cause and get a goodie bag, plus free True Blood stuff (those guys ARE vampires!), and our eternal appreciation. And as fabled science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein said when he first started this tradition 37 years ago: Pay it forward. Click that link above and schedule your appointment!
