Vote now to support a cause!
Riot Games has that it is organizing a charity voting campaign to give its player base around the world the opportunity to decide which charities they want to support through Riot. From Valorant’s Give Back Bundle to the Star Guardian skins in League of Legends, players helped raise millions of dollars for the Riot Games Social Impact Fund, noted the publisher.
Riot Games, through the contributions of its players, is able to allot over $6 Million USD from the Riot Games Social Impact fund to different charities. By working with its local offices and GlobalGiving, a non-profit organization (NPO), Riot Games has selected 84 nonprofits from 28 regions.
“We’re allocating $6M, raised through various in-game fundraisers, to create a charity pool for each country based on their proportional participation in these campaigns,” noted Riot Games.
We believe in creating opportunities where players can make meaningful changes in their local communities and charity voting campaigns are a great way for them to tell us what causes and charities matter most to their communities. We truly have the best players in the world and I’m excited to see which charities they choose,” said Social Impact Senior Manager Jimmy Hahn in a press release.
Players from the Indian regions will have the opportunity to vote between three NPOs from India or even switch to a different region and vote.
How to vote for an NPO from the Indian region
Once players go to the Riot Games Social Impact Fund , they will be greeted with the three charities from the eligible region closest to where the players are located. Following this, they will be able to vote for one of the nonprofits listed there or switch over to another eligible country where they want their vote to be counted. Notably, each player can only vote once.
After the voting period ends, the organization with the most votes from each region will receive 50% of that region’s charity pool. The other two organizations will each receive 25%. Additionally, Riot Games has guaranteed a minimum grant of $10,000 USD to each participating nonprofit.
The three Indian NPOs that are listed under the Riot Games Social Impact Fund are as follows:
Mann Deshi Foundation: Gender Equality
Teach For India: Education
The Opentree Foundation: Mental Health
The other regions participating are:
Between 12th December and 22nd December, players can head over to to cast their votes. You can also switch to any of these above-mentioned regions in the Riot Games Social Impact Fund and choose a charity to cast your vote for.
