Blood Drive

Gen Con is thrilled to partner with The Heinlein Society and Versiti Blood Center of Indiana again for another record-breaking blood drive. By donating blood, you make a significant difference in the lives of others, and your donation helps people in need of blood transfusions due to surgery, cancer treatment, trauma, and more.

Please join us in this life-saving action and “pay it forward,” as author Robert Heinlein said. Donation times have been extended to make your donation as easy and as quick as possible.

This year, dScryb, Michael Ghelfi Studios, Son of Lich minis by DNDShorts, Roll20 , and Paizo have all provided generous contributions, including an exclusive free Loot Crate for all confirmed blood donors and huge daily giveaways, including a Grand Prize worth OVER $2,000.
