To update you on a previous story, Riot Games has announced that at the completion of their fundraiser on Friday, over $480,000 came in due to the participation of over 140,000 contributors, “100 percent of which will go to Make-A-Wish America and Make-A-Wish International in Joe’s name.”

This fundraising plan by Riot mirrors one they ran a year ago to benefit the earthquake and tsunami relief efforts in Japan, where over 50,000 League of Legends players helped raise over $160,000 for the Red Cross.

From now until May 18th, League of Legends makers Riot Games is donating the entirety of the purchase price of the champion Jax and his Jaximus skin to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, as well as marking both of those items at a 50% discount. Riot said they were inspired to make this move after partnering with the Foundation to provide a trip and tour of their offices for Joe, a young man with a rare bone cancer. “ We were excited to meet him, and were blown away by his courage and positive attitude,” said Riot’s Brandon Beck.
