Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the #LythforAustralia event! Thanks to everyone's donations, you managed to raise approximately $347 AUD for the listed charities working to aid the Australian bush fire relief! This is absolutely incredible and we are so thankful for everyone's generosity!
There are still a couple designs available that are also aimed to raise money for these charities, so the final total will end up being over $350 AUD!
Thank you all so much again! We look forward to holding more charity events in the future and hope that everyone enjoyed this event as well!
Though this event has ended, the following text from the announcement remains for posterity:
The Realm of Lyth is holding a short charity event in order to help raise money for the Australia bush fire relief efforts!

100% of the proceeds will be going to various Australian charities.

✦ Lythian Designs
Over the course of the event, designs from the staff and guest artists will be available via flat sale, auction, and raffle.
They will be hosted on the creators' accounts and posted to the group gallery.
Only real currency will be accepted for these, as the goal is to raise money for charity!
✦ Collectible Creatures
With this event, we are introducing a new collectible creature species: the Orch!
You can read more about Orches on their species information page.
For the duration of the event, we will be hiding Orches and other collectible creatures around the DeviantArt group (and other official pages).

After your hold has been placed, you have 1 hour to make a donation of the required amount.
Then, comment again with a proof of donation and your site username.
After confirmation, we will link your new collectible creature to your site account!
