March 10 is Mario Day!
March 10 is Mario Day (Mar10 Day), and this year, Nintendo is celebrating in many different ways, such as making a special donation to the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
The Starlight Children’s Foundation is a nonprofit organization that helps hospitalized children. Their work includes creating the Starlight Brave Gowns, which replace regular hospital gowns with more comfortable and exciting gowns. Nintendo will be providing new designs for Starlight Brave Gowns featuring Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Donkey Kong, and Yoshi, as well as donating enough money for the foundation to create 2,000 gowns.
Over the weekend, Nintendo will also appear at PAX East in Boston. Mario games will also be featured in March 11’s Kids’ Choice Awards 2017, on Nickelodeon.
There is also a special Mario Day sale, with new Mario-themed rewards available from My Nintendo and discounts on certain digital Mario games bought through Amazon.
Finally, if you want to celebrate Mario Day in a smaller way, a Mario-themed frame for your Facebook photo will be available for all of March 10. It will be at the top of the list of Facebook’s featured frames.
Happy Mario Day! How are you celebrating?
