Hello and welcome!
I just wanted to let you guys know about a charity event that the guys over at Mariomarathon.com are putting on. They are playing through all of the Mario games and based on the amount of money they recieve for the charity , http://www.childsplaycharity.com/ , They will continue playing based on the amount of money they accrue. So far they have been playing for 48 hours, and have raised $12,000 + so far.
You can catch the live web-stream of the guys playing below, or on their website: http://www.mariomarathon.com/
They have a paypal link on the site that you can use to donate.

Check it out and donate!
