Publisher and developer Riot Games is holding a charity fundraiser in League of Legends, aimed to help those impacted by the ongoing pandemic.
The LoL charity fundraiser has now begun and is set to last until July 23 at 1:00 PM PT/9:00 PM BST. All proceeds from the Nurse Akali, Kennen M.D., and Surgeon Shen skins will go towards the Riot Games Social Impact Fund, "a nonprofit philanthropic fund, which is a separate entity from Riot Games the game developer and publisher".
In addition to the fundraiser, League of Legends players can also complete a series of Play Safe Together missions that grant in-game rewards like Blue Essence and a Game On Ward skin shard.
