article imageNintendo Donates Wii Units to Children's Hospitals

By Nathalie Caron     Jun 25, 2008 in Technology
Nintendo and Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation unveiled today their new Fun Centers, now including Wiis. These gaming stations are donated to the Foundation and then distributed to children’s hospitals around America.
Nintendo is currently manufacturing 1,250 consoles, 500 of which will be offered to Starlight this year. The partnership between both organization dates back 16 years now, with over 5,000 original GameCube stations handed out in North America.
“Everyone who has spent time in a hospital knows how scary and lonely it can be,” said Paula Van Ness, CEO of Starlight in a news release. “Our Fun Centers transform the hospital experience for children, bringing enjoyment and laughter to an otherwise daunting experience. And as an added benefit of this new Fun Center model, the Wii technology can be used to encourage children to do physical therapy and motor coordination exercises.”
The newly designed gaming stations are set to include Sharp AQUOS flat-screen television, a DVD player, along with a Wii system and a selection of family-friendly games like Super Mario Galaxy, Wii Sports and Mario Party 8.
