American Red Cross' blood drive at last year's QuakeCon was a huge success, so much so that they reached out to Bethesda Softworks and id Software and asked if they could be a part of this year's show. During QuakeCon 2015's opening keynote today, Pete Hines, Bethesda's vice president of public relations and marketing, said that the blood donated by show attendees last year saved 320 lives.

People who donate blood at this year's show walk away with an exclusive Doom water bottle that looks like a blood bag. If you are at QuakeCon, and wish to give blood, head to the Topaz Room on Friday or Saturday between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
