The Heinlein Society and Arisia are once again running the Blood Drive; last year we raised 120 pints of much-needed blood. Look for the table in the lobby next to the Info Desk or watch for our folks out with clipboards.
Note that 16 year-olds CAN donate by getting a form filled out by their parents.
Please see http://2013.arisia.org/blooddrive for more details and links to eligibility criteria and forms.

There will a Memorial gathering for Tom Fish, one of Arisia's founders, at Arisia on Saturday at 4pm in the Executive Boardroom (3W).
Relatedly, The Westin Staff will be raising money for the MSPCA in the memory of Tom Fish (he loved dogs) by "taxing" their staff who want to wear jeans over Arisia Weekend, and we (Arisia Inc) will be doing a 50% match for whatever they raise.
