It looks like Hi-Rez Studios is increasing its efforts to raise awareness of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Smite players will soon be able to purchase a new Athena skin, with all proceeds going to UNICEF for the aid of children in Ukraine, the game’s official Twitter account announced today.

Peace for Ukraine Athena shows the warrior goddess donning the colors of Ukraine’s flag. Peace for Ukraine Athena will join Smite as part of the Heavenly Light update with Patch 9.3. That means you can expect to see Peace for Ukraine Athena in the shop starting on March 22.

Earlier this month, Hi-Rez Studios CEO Stewart Chisam revealed that the company will be donating 100 percent of its revenue from Russia for the months of March and April to UNICEF. With Peace for Ukraine Athena, Hi-Rez will surely raise even more money for UNICEF in hopes of aiding the children of Ukraine.

UNICEF says funds gathered to help children of Ukraine are being used for a variety of things, according to its website, including meeting the escalating needs for safe water and health care, as well as providing vital humanitarian supplies, the first batch of which arrived in Western Ukraine on March 5.
