The Coru Cathubodua is joining forces with Solar Cross Temple and Blood Centers of the Pacific once again for a blood drive at Pantheacon 2015. Let's make this year another successful drive for life! Please pre-register so the blood center knows how many staff members to send!
HOW TO PARTICIPATE @ PANTHEACON BLOOD DRIVE 2015

2- Go to ‘Donate Blood,'and enter our sponsor code ‘PCon’
3- Select your preferred appointment time
4- Show up to the bloodmobile at your appointment time at PantheaCon
Advance signup is necessary! This helps the Blood Center allocate enough staff and equipment to meet the need. Registration is very quick. Appointments are easy to reschedule on that website if you should need to do so, so please sign up in advance, even if you think you may need to change your appointment later. The bloodmobile will be onsite Friday 2/13 - Sunday 2/15 to receive blood donations.
We are seeking volunteers to help staff the blood drive signup table. No experience needed! This is a great way to support the drive, even if you are not able to donate blood. To volunteer:

2- Enter your name for the hours you can volunteer at the table
3- Show up for your volunteer time at PantheaCon
There are eligibility restrictions on who can give blood. If you can’t give, please consider helping the effort by recruiting someone who can, and by sharing this page on your social networks to encourage others to donate. Here is a link to find out if you are eligible: http://www.bloodcenters.org/blood-donation/am-i-eligible/.
As you may note, there is a very severe restriction that affects queer men and their partners. WE WILL HAVE A PETITION TO CHANGE THE RULING AT THE DONOR INFO TABLE.
BLOOD DONATION AS DEVOTION
We are holding this blood drive as an act of devotion in honor of the Morrígan, the matron Goddess of the Coru Cathubodua Priesthood. We’re encouraging folks to donate blood in the Morrígan’s name as an offering to Her and an act of kinship with our fellow human beings. But the blood drive is for all, and if you happen not to want to give in Her name, feel free to give in the name of your own deities, or just give without devotional intent, in honor of humanity.
Pantheacon Blood donors will receive special badge ribbons to display your heroic gift and encourage others to do likewise.

ABOUT CORU PRIESTHOOD (Coru Cathubodua)
Service, sovereignty, kinship and warriorship are the values that guide the Coru Priesthood (full name Coru Cathobodua Priesthood). We are Pagan priests on the move, ready to take action to advance our mission to bring these values to the world through acts of community and individual service. Guided by our matron the Morrigan, Celtic Goddess of sovereignty, we welcome all who share this vision of service and of bringing these values to life for all people.
