League of Legends Japan Earthquake Relief Initiative

As many of you are aware, on the afternoon of March 11th, Japan experienced one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded followed by hundreds of aftershocks. The resulting tsunami smashed into the Eastern coast of the island nation, leaving thousands dead, over ten thousand missing, and causing billions of dollars in damage. Today the crisis is far from over, as tens of thousands more are without access to basic services (such as electricity and running water) and hundreds of thousands of people are displaced.

Players have asked if there is something we as a community could do to help those affected by the March 11th quake. From now until 12:00pm on Sunday the 27th, all proceeds from the purchase of Nurse Akali or RP purchases of the champion Akali will be donated to the Red Cross to help those in need following this tragic occurrence. You’ll also find that we’ve placed the champion Akali– along with her alluring Nurse Akali skin– on sale for 50% off to encourage donations.

Nurse Akali is on the case, summoners! Your contributions can help make a difference in the lives of those affected by one of the greatest natural disasters in recent memory. Help aid the Red Cross relief effort by picking up one of your favorite champions and skins at a reduced rate!
