Heinlein Society Blood Drive at Arisia

Thank you to everyone that donated blood at Arisia 2011. Thanks to your generous donations, we got 124 pints of blood.
From MGH:
The fantastic support from all of the convention goers was amazing. The fact that we were already on a blood shortage status and anticipating yet another storm, had us worried about maintaining the blood supply.
