For gamers, March 13 is a special day. It's the launch of Capcom's Resident Evil 5. What makes this day even more special is Capcom has partnered with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive.

On the way to pick up a copy of Resident Evil 5, gamers in the Los Angeles area will be invited to give back to the community by donating blood at the World of Wonder gallery on Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, Calif., from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. In addition, fans of the series will have the chance to get exclusive limited-edition Resident Evil 5 Blood Drive collectibles, win copies of the game, enter a raffle for one of several exclusive red Xbox 360 Resident Evil limited edition consoles, and most importantly, do their part to help a good cause.

Kiosks showcasing the game will also be on hand for fans to get a sneak peek at the eagerly anticipated new game before heading to retailers to buy their own copy. Generous fans who donate blood will receive exclusive Resident Evil 5 limited-edition items created specifically for this event, including a series of hand-numbered stylized posters, bumper stickers, buttons, and a chance to win a copy of the game or an exclusive red Xbox 360 Resident Evil limited-edition console. All Type "O" fans will learn that they can "B" Positive agents for their community, and they will find that "AB" it of blood can go a long way.

When:

Resident Evil 5 may be about taking lives, but it's great the launch event is all about saving lives. Even if you don't own a PS3 or Xbox 360, you should still go to the event and give blood.
