Gene Simmons Sells His Kidney Stone For Charity


June 4, 2009

We’ve heard of people donating their kidneys before, but kidney stones are something we wouldn’t wish on anyone! But Gene Simmons has found a way to turn the awful experience that kidney stones are into a positive thing.

The Kiss star has just sold his kidney stone for $15,000 after listing it on eBay. He recently suffered from the ailment, and decided to try and use it to make a little cash.

And before you go knocking the idea, you should know that it was all in the name of charity! Gene says, “I passed a kidney stone and I put it on eBay for charity. (I got) $15,000.”

We don’t know who in their right mind would want something like that as a souvenir, but at least it was for a good cause!
