With the war in Ukraine fully taking charge, more and more corporations are stepping in to try and find ways to help. Companies are donating millions of dollars to help those in need and fleeing their war-torn country, while others are even letting those who have nowhere to go shelter in their homes.
More and more aid and relief is flooding to Ukraine as it looks like this war is not going to end anytime soon. Riot is also stepping in to do their part, during this humanitarian crisis.
Riot Donates Funds
Riot has pledged to donate $1 million across three humanitarian organizations.
Not only are they donating money, as a League of Legends player, or anyone who plays a game made by Riot, can help donate just by buying their products. Throughout March 5 to 12, 2022 all proceeds of the below named products will be donated to support humanitarian relief efforts in the war torn region.
- VALORANT Battle Pass
- Legends of Runeterra Battle Pass
- Teamfight Tactics Battle Pass
- Wild Rift Battle Pass
- League of Legends new Bee Skins
So, even if you dislike the bee skins, spend some RP to help in any way that you can. Russia invading Ukraine is causing a humanitarian crisis and millions of people have been ripped away from their homes, their culture and their loved ones.
