Nurse Akali raises over $160,000 for Red Cross

Posted on at 5:20 AM by Moobeat

The numbers are in for the Nurse Akali Red Cross event. Summoners raised over $160,000 to help aid Japan in the wake of the devastating Tsunami. Three cheers for buying pretty nurse skins for charity!

"Summoners!

This past March 11th marked one of the greatest natural disasters in recorded history. In an effort to support those affected by the devastation, we invited all League of Legends players to donate to the American Red Cross by purchasing the Nurse Akali skin or the champion Akali with RP. The promotion ran for all of this past week, during which time 100% of all proceeds from this champion and skin were collected for the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund. In the end, over 50,000 summonerschose to participate.

We invited our partners from the Red Cross down to the Riot Games office to accept your donations,which totaled over $160,000! We have witnessed the power in the community in the past, but you never cease to amaze us. Riot Games and the American Red Cross would like to thank you for your generosity, and for stepping in to contribute to the relief efforts in the wake of this global tragedy.
