Final Fantasy XIV players donate money and blood for charity

The Final Fantasy XIV community is large, diverse, and focused on a variety of different issues. But it does seem to be a community that likes being charitable, as evidenced by the results of the game’s Stormblood-themed blood drive. A new video is available just below showing off the themed bus itself and celebrating the estimated 1,200 lives saved by blood donated through that means lone.

But maybe that was just because it was an official outlet and was kind of visible? It doesn’t seem so, as the player-organized charity stream event from the weekend raised over $21,000 for disaster relief. That’s pretty cool, too. You can check out the blood drive video just below if you’d like to see more about how it looked… and if you missed either of the above, you could always just go donate some blood and money today. Hurricane victims will need both, and no one will stop you from muttering “for Ala Mhigo” while you do it.

What Victims? I like to make sure it’s going to a country that needs it.
