takes an entire village to raise a child. But it only takes a little celebrity kidney
stone to build a house.
A family victimized by Hurricane Katrina is to rate a new home after William Shatner
donated the windfall from the sale of one slightly used crystallized mass to Habitat
for Humanity officials in Los Angeles.
The Boston Legal Emmy winner and Star Trek icon passed the kidney stone last October.
GoldenPalace.com, the gaming site with a knack for promotion, bought it this week
According to a statement, the sale was contingent on GoldenPalace.com making its five-figure
check payable to Habitat.
“I offered the stone, stint and string for $25,000, and informed them that 100 percent
of the proceeds would go to benefit Habitat for Humanity,” Shatner said, adding, “and
I retain visitation rights.”
