The other day, I made a pair of pretty kick butt Mario shoes for my fiance, because he's pretty kick butt himself. Also, the Mario Marathon was starting pretty soon, and he's a bit of a super fan.
Making those shoes has inspired me to see if I can further encourage my readers to donate to the Mario Marathon. Beside this post, you'll see a donation widget. For every $5 you donate to the Mario Marathon through my blog, between now and 4:30PM PST on June 24th, 2012, will be entered into a draw to win a pair of custom made Mario shoes made by me (with a little help from a friend).
The winner will be announced on Sunday and will be contacted - so it's important to leave an email address or twitter handle so that I can contact you - that day so that I can get your shoe size and mailing address. Because they are handmade, they will take a bit of time to make, but I will try to get them out to you as soon a possible.
Below are some pictures of the shoes I made my fiance, just to give you an idea as to what you will be getting. And remember, for every $5 donation you get an entry. So the more you donate, the more entries you get. All the money goes to Child's Play Charity.
So go donate!
Do it for the kids!
Do it for the shoes!
