Yes you can. Thousands of people safely donate plasma every day. The collection process uses sterile tubing and supplies for each donation, which are discarded after each collection and are never reused. Blood does not come in contact with the collection machine. Blood centers take safety seriously and have taken the necessary precautions to allow safe donations during the pandemic. Appointments are encouraged, and masks are required. If you are still unsure or have more questions, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com .
We understand this may mean you are unable to donate during this campaign – or at all. If you are able to donate after April 30th 2021, you can upload a screenshot of the confirmation email for your appointment, even if you have not donated yet.
The whole process, including registration and your free post-donation snack, takes approximately an hour. The actual blood donation only takes about 12 minutes. For convalescent plasma donation, the process can take a little longer.
No, not at all. Although of course everyone has a unique experience, generally you will only feel a small pinch as the needle is inserted.
You most certainly can. Fill out the form on the ‘claim your skin’-page and upload a screenshot of the confirmation email you received upon booking your appointment. We’ll make sure K/DA ALL OUT Kai’Sa is sent to your account within a week. Thank you for making the effort to come out and donate!
You can find your blood unit number (BUN, also known as donation identification number, DIN) on the post-donation instructions you were given at the blood center. If you didn’t receive your BUN or lost your documentation, don’t worry. You can upload a photo of the email you received post-donation to claim your skin instead.
Plasma is a yellowish liquid that makes up about half your blood volume. Convalescent plasma means plasma that comes from people who have recovered from an infection, like the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. This plasma may contain antibodies against the virus. Antibodies are proteins that your immune system makes after you have had an infection, that can neutralize or kill the virus and help you to recover.
Convalescent plasma has been used as a treatment for decades. The use of convalescent plasma on patients recovering from Covid-19 is considered an investigational treatment under the FDA. The FDA authorized an emergency use authorization in August 2020 as it concluded on the basis of scientific evidence that convalescent plasma may be effective in treating Covid-19 and that its potential benefits outweigh the potential known risks.
According to recent literature, the use of convalescent plasma seems to be effective in lessening the severity or shortening the length of COVID-19 illness. Studies have seen a decrease in mortality in COVID-19 patients treated with convalescent plasma. The use of convalescent plasma seems especially promising when administered early on in the disease and for patients with an auto-immune disease whose bodies are unable to produce antibodies themselves.
Clinical trials are still running to gain a deeper understanding of the effectiveness of convalescent plasma in treating COVID-19 patients.
Anyone within the US who has donated blood or plasma, or has tried to donate blood or plasma (but was deferred). Unfortunately, non-US residents are not eligible for the K/DA ALL OUT Kai’Sa incentive offered as part of this campaign.
You can claim your free skin until April 30th 2021 8pm PDT (or when supplies run out). You will qualify for a skin if you..
If you already know you are not eligible to donate during the period of this campaign or at all, you can encourage someone you know who isn’t interested in the skin to donate and ask to use their proof of donation to claim K/DA ALL OUT Kai’Sa. Any proof of donation can only be used once.
No, during this campaign it’s only possible to receive K/DA ALL OUT Kai’Sa.

Riot Games and the LCS have an enormous amount of viewers, followers, and gamers that have or might have had COVID-19. Within this partnership, Riot Games uses its reach to encourage giving blood. As a token of appreciation, every donor received K/DA ALL OUT Kai’Sa for free to use in League of Legends.
The data entered to claim your skin will be used only to transfer K/DA ALLOUT Kai’Sa to your account and will be deleted within 30 days from the end of this campaign.
Please note it takes a week for your skin to be processed. So please do not contact us before 7 days have passed.
