Vampires for Charity

Once, while dressed as Dracula (I was a sponsor for the Monster Mania film festival of Universal classics at the Historic Artcraft Theater), I donated blood. I posed for a photo outside the mobile donation trailer, assuring the photographer I’d come to the blood bank to make a deposit, not a withdrawal. Then I went inside, and when the nurse came around the corner to check me in, she screamed.

It was great fun. I do love my vampires.

In a similar /ahem/ vein, I would like to share with you a fun promotional event called Vampire Books for Blood. The authors of the vampire-themed books listed have pledged to donate 10% of their October sales to either the American Red Cross or Canadian Blood Services, depending on their location.

So hop on over (yes, that’s a vampire pun, too) and see if there’s any new books you want to sink your teeth into.

  1. And now I am trying to think of all the vampire characters I have enjoyed – ranging from terrifying to kinda lovable (Stefan the Scooby-Doo loving vamp…who could still be scary …)

  2. Oh, how fun! Love your sense of humor, too. Wish I could have seen that nurse’s face!
