Riot Games is offering summoners an incentive to help aid Japan in the wake of the devastating tsunami by donating all proceeds generated by the sale of Akali, via RP, and the skin Nurse Akali to the Red Cross. In addition, both Akali and the Skin will be available for 50% off the current price, dropping Nurse Akali to a mere 487 Riot Points.
Here is the official statement by Riot.
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.- Moneypenny, Marketing Manager, via the official forums.
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!"
As a bonus, here is some cosplay pics forum goer Mayuka dressed as Nurse Akali. You can find her other costums ranging from LeBlanc to Nidalee at her blog.
