With the dizzying spread of Covid-19, this epidemic is a global threat and the best way to prevent it is simple but extremely difficult is to stay at home and not go to crowded places. One of the best ways to do this is at home playing games, so the World Health Organization WHO launched the #PlayApartTogether movement to promote “playing back Covid-19”.
Riot Games joined the meaningful #PlayApartTogether movement against Covid-19
After being launched by WHO, this movement has been promoted by a series of leading gaming companies in the world with billions of customers such as Activision Blizzard, Riot Games, Youtube Gaming streaming platform, many gaming firms, providing participating mobile applications. In particular, the CEO of Riot Games represents the company to send powerful and meaningful messages in the fight against epidemics.
Ray Chambers, a member of the WHO board, insists gaming is a good way to help reduce the spread of Covid-19 and save many lives.
Game companies, which provide mobile design services, also responded to the #PlayApartTogether movement
Blizzard is also quickly a part of this significant movement
The YouTube Gaming streaming platform also participates and hopes everyone stays home and play games
Riot Games of course does not stand outside this meaningful movement
Riot Games CEO Nicolo Laurent: “Physical distance does not mean social isolation. Stay physically apart to minimize the spread of disease and #PlayApartTogether to create the power to overcome this crisis. For Riot employees, the game is more than just a game, it’s a living life. And now, with billions of gamers across the globe, gaming can save a lot of lives. Let’s defeat the last boss Covid-19 together! “.
In fact, Riot Games was a long time before selling many Akali masks from the time of the launch of the K / DA costume.
Riot Games has always been the leading game company in philanthropic work for many years. As soon as Covid-19 showed signs of global spread, Riot Games let its employees work from home early.
Earlier, the mayor of Los Angeles – Mr. Eric Garcetti issued a notice honoring Riot Games – the business has just raised a donation of 1.5 million USD (equivalent to more than 35 billion VND) for non-profit organizations and the California State Relief Fund to support the prevention of the Covid-19 epidemic.
