Riot launch League of Legends charity skin

This is a totally unmissable one for League of Legends fans - Riot Games and GlobalGiving have launched the Dark Star Cho’Gath limited edition skin, available to buy until 10 August, with all proceeds from UK sales going to SpecialEffect!

It’s all because of events last year, when the Make A Wish Foundation introduced a League player called Bryan to the Riot Games team. Together they created a limited edition skin for his favourite League champion. This year, Dark Star Cho’Gath will be unleashed on Summoner’s Rift!

The donations to SpecialEffect will enable us to help more gamers like Ryan, seen here laying the smack down in League of Legends a year or so ago using a custom control setup that we worked out for him. Ryan has muscular dystrophy, so he doesn’t have the finger strength or movement to press the buttons on a keyboard, but four lightweight buttons acting like eight different keyboard presses, along with some custom voice controls, kept him playing.

Since then his condition has advanced, so we’re going back soon to see how we can keep this Summoner in the Rift!

Massive thanks to all the team at Riot Games for their support - it’s going to help Ryan and so many more gamers with disabilities! And it’s not just ourselves that will benefit - another 19 charities around the world will be helped by this fantastic initiative.
