Mario Marathon 5 is OVER!

Every year, a small group of gamers holds the annual Mario Marathon in which they stream themselves playing through every console Mario game for charity. All donations go to Child's Play charity where the money is used to buy games, toys, and books for kids in hospitals.

Each year, Mario Marathon tracks where donations come in from. In 2011, Negative World raised $110 for Child's Play, ranking us at #28 on the Top 100 Partner Sites leaderboard. Our goal this year is to crack the Top 20, meaning we'll have to raise about $200 total (going by last year's numbers). If you'd like your donation to be credited to Negative World, use this widget:



Remember, it's for the children!

....

Why don't WE have a marathon thing? I guess we'd need to be in one place at the same time?
...meetup marathon?


--And we raised more than IGN, GoNintendo, and Neogaf COMBINED last year.

Cool! I remember watching this last year. I sent them $$ then and will do it again. Anything for kids. People are only kids once and that is the time they usually enjoy life the most, or at least they should...thats the way I see it.

Adulthood sucks. I'd love to be a kid again and never grow up.

The Mario Marathon crew announced this morning that, since they raised $10,000 before the marathon even started, they'll definitely be playing 100% Sunshine. If they raise their goal of $125,000, they'll be 100%ing Galaxy 2 AND Sunshine. This is the first year that they could potentially have to play through every single level in every single console Mario game!

They've been playing for one day and 2 hours now! They're at Super Mario Galaxy at the moment, Sea Slide Galaxy is fun.

Negative World, let's show our generosity for a good cause.

The marathon is nearly over. Anyone who's interested still has time to see the end!

EDIT: And, at $111K and 111 hours, it's over.
