Dragon Con is a major donation venue for LifeSouth, which serves more than 40 hospitals in the Atlanta area and more than 110 hospitals in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama. In 2014, the drive welcomed 3,893 donors and collected 3,292 units. Each year, the blood drive’s goal is to top the previous year’s totals. Don’t miss out this year—give blood and get a free T-shirt!
