2017 Worlds Ready to Kick Off, Ashe Charity Skin Unveiled - League of Legends - MMORPG.com

The League of Legends 2017 World Championship, or "Worlds", is going to be kicking off this week with some of the biggest names in esports from around the world taking place. This year's event will be taking place in China at four locations around the country with the finals held in Beijing. Rank-and-file players can get in on the action too by purchasing themed skins, decals and taking part in a variety of in-game missions. Lastly, Ashe will receive this year's charity skin.

Purchasing Ashe's skin will see Riot add to the Worlds prize pool and the company will donate 25% of the proceeds to three different charities including Basic Needs, Learning Equality, and The Raspberry Pi Foundation:

BasicNeeds builds sustainable programs that support people with mental illness and epilepsy in low- and middle-income countries. BasicNeeds trains and engages local governments and nonprofits to build working models of prolonged mental health advocacy and support. They aim to expand programs into three additional countries with the goal of aiding 250,000 more people over three years.

Learning Equality enables access to high-quality education in communities without Internet access, breaking the cycle of poverty around the world. They’ll further develop and launch their offline learning platform Kolibri to provide rich digital experiences for underserved students in over 175 countries.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation crafts low-cost computers for people all around the world use to learn and have fun with computing. All sales fund their technology education programs like CoderDojo. They plan to host 5,000 more coding dojos in communities across South America, India, China, and East Africa.

You can learn more about the charity drive on the League of Legends site and more about the other cosmetics that can be purchased to honor the Worlds here.
