The lights are on
From now until May 18, 100% of revenue from players purchasing the character Jax and his Jaximus armor in League of Legends will go towards the Make-A-Wish foundation.
League of Legends developer Riot Games recently worked with Make-A-Wish to bring Joe, who suffers from Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare type of cancerous bone tumor, to come spend the day in its studio. Riot Games was so impressed with Joe and the work that the Make-a-Wish foundation does, that they decided to help out, and it wanted to get League of Legends fans involved.
Jax is Joe's favorite champion from the game, which is why he was chosen. You can find out more about Riot Games and its experience with Make-A-Wish (and purchase Jax), by clicking here.

neat. always is cool when companies do this sort of stuff
That's really nice of them. Thanks Riot Games, for continuing to push things in the right direction.
This is great!, more devs should do things like this.
and the reason for this skin is because i believe it's his favorite for jax
This is great! It's nice to see some kindness in the midst of the usual corporate bloodbath.
Jax is op... he is rlly rlly difficult to play, but when you play him right there is no way to stop him unless its a 3v1 situation and even then its difficult( unless your entire team has long lasting stuns). There is no way for any ranged person to kill him because he jumps to you and you are dead within 5 second... only way to not lose to him is to all team up and crush him repeatedly during early game. But this is a nice gesture from riot games( but they should nerf him)
That's very noble of them nice job guys :)
Yay! A LoL post.
I would do this with someone good or someone I don't have with that specific skin
That is excellent! It really is nice to find out some kindness inside midst of your usual company bloodbath.
I find it funny how when I start playing Jax, his skin goes on sale and I help children, granted I would've done this with any hero (that I can afford)
