Here's a heartwarming story to put you in a good mood before the weekend. The Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation and Nintendo have teamed up to put Fun Centers featuring Wii gaming consoles in about 500 hospitals across the US and Canada by the end of the year, with 750 more to come later this year.
Fun Centers will not only come with a Wii and games like Super Mario Galaxy, Wii Sports and Mario Party 8, but will also feature a Sharp AQUOS flat screen TV and a DVD player. The Centers have been created to offer children an entertaining respite during difficult hospital stays. "We hope the new Fun Centers will give kids and their loved ones an opportunity to play, laugh and connect with each other amid trying circumstances," said Don James, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Operations.
Hip hip hooray for Fun Centers!
