Cartoonists Draw Blood

Register Here!

In association with American Red Cross and National Cartoonists Society, Washington, DC area cartoonists have clotted together to help keep the local blood banks well-stocked. All blood donors receive a complimentary cartoon sketch by a Washington, DC area cartoonist.

Walk-ins are welcome, but we recommend scheduling an appointment time (donation takes about 15 minutes). Halloween costumes are encouraged, but not required.

  • On the day of donation, donors are asked to: drink plenty of fluids
  • Include iron-rich foods in their diet
  • Bring a list of medications they are taking and a photo ID

Organizers: Carolyn Belefski, Troy-Jeffrey Allen
