Nintendo teams up with Habitat for Humanity
Nintendo assists humanity volunteers in their goal to build over 1,000 homes in Florida.

by | November 11, 2004

Habitat for Humanity International today announced that Nintendo of America has donated 1,000 doors to Habitat for Humanity affiliates in Florida to help the nonprofit homebuilding organization. Nintendo selected Mario, one of its most popular video game icons to aid Habitat for Humanity volunteers today at a build site in Pensacola, Fla., to deliver and help install the first of the 1,000 doors.

Nintendo made the donation in honor of Mario's new role-playing video game, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Habitat for Humanity affiliates will use the doors in home building projects across the state of Florida, working toward its goal to build a record 1,000 houses in the state this year. Lowe's Home Improvement, a national partner with Habitat for Humanity International, supported this donation by providing the doors to Nintendo at a discount.
