Calling on people to donate blood at an animation show may be a strange thing, but San Diego International Comic-Con has maintained this practice for more than 40 years.
In the 1970s, Robert A. Heinlein, a famous novelist, suffered from a life-threatening disease that required many rare blood types to survive. After receiving the blood donation, he felt that he owed the blood donor. Later, when the novelist was invited to the world con, he told the organizers that he could come, but there was a strange demand that only blood donors be signed. Later, the organizers agreed to cooperate with the novelist's blood donation. After that, more and more celebrities joined in the blood donation activities of the animation exhibition, and the organizers arranged it very well. In addition to getting autographs and gifts after donating blood, they also prepared performances for people who are donating blood to make the activity more active and interesting.
According to statistics, San Diego International Comic-Con blood donation activities have saved 2200 lives in the past 33 years.
