Yesterday I spent several hours on the Siren server as a lalafell supporting the invasion for hurricane relief event. This started when Denmo, and several of the FFXIV community’s popular personalities, got together to raise money for a good cause.
The response was powerful — I managed to roll my lala just a few minutes before the server shut down the character creater. There were that many people flooding in!
The LaLa Free Company had at least 300 members when I last saw.
I wasn’t able to stick around for the whole event, but it was a lot of fun! I was also stunned to see that Denmo had to keep upping the campaign goal as it quickly shattered the original $5,000… and eventually raised over $21,000 in total!
My thoughts and prayers go out to those everywhere who have been impacted by these devastating storms. Please stay safe, all!
