    Default Selling boxed SNES to raise money for a friend who recently died of cancer.

    Hey everyone,

    A friend of mine recently passed and left behind his wife and four children. When they first moved him to hospice, I noticed he had a small, but cherry Super Nintendo collection. I've been selling pieces of it to help his wife, who basically became his caretaker when he first go sick and had to leave her job, and kids secure a place to live. If anyone here is or knows someone who is interested in these two pieces I have left, please either get the word out or grab them. The proceeds will go directly to help this family out. Alternatively, if you don't need a boxed Super Nintendo Donkey Kong bundle with everything but the manual for Donkey Kong Country or copy of Diddy's Kong Quest and would still like to get involved, you can either donate to or spread the word about his fundraiser linked below.

    Thank you.

    P.S. He also had an original Gameboy complete in the box, but I can't get it to power on. Once I do I will post about it here. Thanks again.

    That old Gameboy, have you any clue where the failure is on it? I'm thinking if it's not some really annoying micro circuitry it could be recovered.

    Not sure yet. Once I open it up I should have a better idea. I might just swap the guts of my Gameboy here with it so I have a working unit to sell and the serial number matches the box.
