We plan on getting them tons of stuff and even dressing up as Santa. When my chain of command told us about this project we instantly jumped on it because I know first hand how it feels to be without during Christmas. Win a skin or not, it's the right thing to do during the holidays.

I just bought the RP needed to gift a Pulsefire Ezreal skin (I invite a Rioter red to confirm this), and I'm going to gift it to a random stranger on Christmas Day - maybe you.

Why? Long story short, I just found out tonight that my grandma - one of the kindest, gentlest people I've ever known - is in intensive care and may not last much longer. In her honor - or her memory - I want to bring as much good into the world this holiday as possible, but there's only so much that I alone can do.

That's where you come in.

To inspire everyone to do good, I'm starting a contest. Go out and do something nice in the world - volunteer at a homeless shelter, shovel the neighbor's driveway, help your little sister with her homework, donate to a charity, or just call your mom/grandma and tell her that you love her.

Doesn't matter what, just do something to bring a smile to someone else's face. Then, come back here and post it to let me know what you've done (proof would be great).

At noon EST on Christmas Eve, I'll use a random number generator to pick the winning reply. If the winner really wants a different skin/champion, that's fine, I'll discuss with the winner.

So go, do good in the world, and just maybe you'll get a nice prize for it.

Edit: I sent a support ticket to Riot about the gifting. Absolute worst-case scenario, I'll go buy enough Riot points cards and give the winner the numbers so that they can have the RP to simply buy the skin themselves.

Update: I compiled all of the posts that had come in this morning before I had to go to work and shared them with the family. My mom actually started to cry, my grandpa was speechless for the first time since this started, and my grandma actually smiled (she can't speak since she's on a respirator).

So, basically, thank you to everyone. This has been a really difficult time, and all the good deeds have actually made her happy. I'll get the next round over either yet tonight or tomorrow morning, so keep 'em coming.

Update 2: Though I haven't been able to respond much, for obvious reasons, I have made a point to go through and collect every post to send on to my grandma (including some very generous offers from some people to match). Your thoughts and deeds have meant a great deal to everyone in the family, and so I wanted to share with you some news.

My grandma was transferred to adult critical care Tuesday evening after her doctor ran out of treatment options. After two days of specialist care, they told us that it will be a few weeks now before she is strong enough to go back home. We're a ways from the finish line, but her vitals have been improving every day!

Thank you to everyone for your thoughts, prayers, good deeds, and even just simple bumps. It's been a pretty difficult week, and just seeing the good in people has been extremely comforting. The contest is still going on, so keep doing good and bringing happiness into the world!

Well you know you are a really giving guy. Especially since it is Pulsefire Ezreal the most pricey skin.
