Support COVID-19 relief efforts with these League of Legends skins

For the next four weeks, all proceeds from Nurse Akali, Kennen M.D., Surgeon Shen and more healthcare-related in-game items will be donated to the Riot Games Social Impact Fund.

These donations will directly support the pandemic relief effort by giving doctors, nurses, and other front line workers the resources they need to act quickly and protect the most vulnerable, and provide critical financial aid to families and individuals who have been negatively impacted by the virus.

A charity fundraiser event within the League of Legends client, selected fundraiser items will be marked with a “Social Impact” Badge in the store.

The fundraiser event will begin on June 25 at 1.00 p.m. (PT) and end on July 23 at 1:00 p.m. (PT). After this time, the chromas, emotes, and bundles will be removed from the store.

According to Riot, “the chromas may eventually return in the Gemstone shop”, but have confirmed that they won’t be available for direct purchase after the fundraiser ends. The skins will remain available.

Last month, players from all around the world rallied together to raise over US$630,000 for COVID-19 relief efforts during Riot Games’ 48-hour Mid-Season Streamathon. In addition, Riot Games has also donated US$4.5 million to global pandemic relief to date.

The Social Impact Fund is a nonprofit philanthropic fund that is a separate entity from Riot Games. Through this fund, Riot has distributed financial aid to many local nonprofits in communities around the world.
