William Shatner sells kidney stone
Sunday, January 22, 2006
It has been announced that the actor sold his kidney stone to the online gambling website, GoldenPalace.com for US$25,000. The money will be donated to Habitat for Humanity, a Christian charity organization that builds houses for the poor.
"When I was contacted about selling my kidney stone to GoldenPalace.Com for an original price of US$15,000 I turned it down, knowing that my tunics from Star Trek have commanded more than US$100,000," Shatner said. He said that he countered by offering to sell the ring-sized stone for US$25,000.
Shatner refused selling the stone at an auction or on television. When Jimmy Kimmel interviewed Shatner, he offered to sell it on his show, an offer that Shatner also refused.
