Mario Marathon 5

If you’ve been a reader of my blog for more than a year or so, you’ve already heard about Mario Marathon. After all, I’ve written about it here, herehere, over here and even shared these cookies with them. Seriously, if you search for “Mario Marathon” on my blog, you’ll find several references.

Because I am a child of the 80’s. Because Mario and Luigi are icons for my generation. And? Because this group of guys, their wives, their children, they GIVE so much time, energy and money for the benefit of Child’s Play Charity.

Over the last four years, we’ve been invited into a living room where a group of friends are playing video games, and raising money via our donations.

How much?IMG_0071_crop

Nearly a quarter million dollars to date.

Not bad, huh?

That money all goes DIRECTLY to Child’s Play, who  in turn uses it to provide games, books and joy to children who are inpatient at children’s hospitals all over the world.

If you get a minute this weekend, go check it out. The event kicks off today at 11am EST, and will run for several days. If you’d like to donate, you can do so either there on the site, or via the link in my right sidebar.

Now, let’s go save the Princess!
