Nintendothon Legends – The Prophecy Comes True

The time is finally right and the people are ready to unite! The date the prophecy foretold is fast approaching!

Legends become reality just one week from today! While we shared a lot of things with you about Nintendothon Legends in our blog post last week (which you should totally check out if you haven’t!), there’s still a lot to share! So without further ado, let’s get right into it!


Train hard and you can collect them all!

At our last few Nintendothon events, we’ve continued a special initiative to highlight every single donation, regardless of size, to emphasize how much we appreciated those who contribute to our campaigns. Born from this initiative have been Leaflets, Stamps and Stars, donor recognition systems that put your names on the wall behind us throughout the event as thanks. We’ve continued to hear your positive feedback about this model and we’re excited to bring it back yet again this marathon!

For every individual donation, regardless of size, to the Legendary Summer Campaign during Nintendothon Legends, your name will be written on a circular sticky note and placed on the wall behind the gameplay couch, where it will stay for the rest of the marathon! As there are five different days at Nintendothon Legends, there are five different colored badges for you to get your name on! Complete your badge collection and become a master trainer by donating each day of the event!

Be sure to follow GFGC over on Twitter if you haven’t already, because we’ll be posting close-up images of the badge collection each day of the event! We hope you’re looking forward to Badges and collecting them all at Nintendothon Legends!


Stay tuned, there’s a lot of excitement soon to come!

We’re excited to announce that the full schedule for Nintendothon Legends is now complete! You can find the completed schedule over on the Nintendothon website, go check it out now! We will also soon be integrating the schedule into the Tiltify fundraiser page, so you’ll be able to see when segments are happening in your time zone without needing to convert manually.

A sneak peek into Friday’s schedule at Nintendothon Legends!

We hope you’re looking forward to all of our scheduled fun at Nintendothon Legends this summer!
