Once we have more info we’ll be sure to pass it along. In the past, True Blood has been a sponsor and some pretty sweet swag was handed out. If you don’t believe me, check out this post by our own Mario. He took part back in 2011

UPDATE 7/2:

Here’s some more information from the CCI website..

You can be a part of this year’s Robert A. Heinlein Blood Drive. The Blood Drive is open from 9:00 am–6:00 PM Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and 10:00 AM–3:30 PM on Sunday. The Blood Drive is located inside the Omni Hotel, in the OMNI BALLROOM CDE (on the 4th floor) across the street from the Convention Center at the Fifth Avenue door. If you’re registering onsite at Comic-Con, please go to the Blood Drive booth near the Freebie Table in the Sails Pavilion, upstairs at the Convention Center.

Each donor will receive a goodie bag,. In addition, HBO will be providing True Blood t-shirts, rubber bracelets, bandages and water for donors.

People who give blood are also entered into daily drawings for fantastic prizes, which are donated by Comic-Con exhibitors. Winners are posted at the Blood Drive sign-up booth at 6:30 PM each day (4:00 PM on Sunday) in the Sails Pavilion.
