nintendo-starlight-gowns-artNintendo is once again celebrating MAR10 Day (March 10th, Mar. 10…you get it). This year they are working with Starlight Children’s Foundation , a nonprofit organization that provides hospitalized children with entertainment, to offer new designs for the Starlight Brave Gowns.

The Starlight Brave Gowns are used to help sick kids feel like superstars by replacing the unattractive and often embarrassing hospital garments with brightly colored gowns. And what better way to do that then by having each gown feature characters from the Mushroom Kingdom?

“Mario puts a smile on everyone’s face, and we wanted our activities on MAR10 Day to reflect that,” said Don James, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Operations. “Whether a longtime fan or someone new to the world of Nintendo, Mario can power up anyone’s day.”

Nintendo will also celebrate by offering deals on select digital games starring Mario via Amazon.com (up to 20% off).

My Nintendo is offering Mario-themed rewards as well, including 30% off Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U – not the greatest deal considering the Deluxe version is headed to the Switch. For info, jump over to My Nintendo’s site.
