The Heinlein Society is proud to be the volunteer sponsor of a Red Cross Blood Drive at Balticon!

This year, we again will be running the drive on Sunday, May 24, 2020. Signups can be done online through Saturday evening and then through walkups as first-come-first-served for remaining slots.

Here is the link to the Red Cross online signup. (Make sure you filter for the date and location range if it doesn’t come up.)  We also really encourage you to use the RapidPass program as it saves you a lot of time with your donation history during your appointment.

Sign up now to reserve the best time for you around your con schedule!

Balticon 54 will be May 22-25, 2019 with the Blood Drive to be held on Sunday, May 24. Donation hours will be 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. this year. Check for the room location at the Fan Table during Balticon; it will be clearly posted.  Look for the Heinlein Society fan table on the Fifth Floor if you want to connect with us prior to the blood drive.

Can you help us beat last year’s total donations?

The Heinlein Society will also again have a “Heinlein For Heroes (H4H)” book drop off at this year’s Balticon.  We will update information here or have it available at our information table at the convention.  Balticon fans have donated hundreds of SF&F books for the enjoyment of our military and their families, a part of over 5,000 books we distributed nationwide last year!

Are you doing your “Spring Cleaning” right now?  Save those doubles and books you just don’t have the space for anymore and bring them to the Heinlein Society table during Balticon…it’s tax-deductible, just ask for a receipt on Sunday during the blood drive.

For more information about the H4H program see the link.
