Riot Games will donate all proceeds from next week’s Battle Pass sales from Valorant, Legends of Runeterra, Teamfight Tactics, Wild Rift, and the new Bee skin line in League of Legends to support humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine, as mentioned in a recent statement by the company.
In addition to this, Riot will also donate $1 million to three different humanitarian non-profit organizations working for relief to people in Ukraine: the International Medical Corps, Doctors Without Borders, and the Polish Red Cross.
“The war in Ukraine has caused an expanding humanitarian crisis,” Riot said in a statement. “Since it began, we’ve heard from players around the world that they want to help—and so do we.”
From Na’Vi breaking all cooperation with Esforce Holding to D2CL getting canceled, the past few days have proved that the Russian invasion on Ukraine has taken a serious toll on the world of esports.
Amid these troubling times in Ukraine, this fundraiser by Riot Games is certain to be welcome by gamers all over the world.
