Happy Kidney Awareness Month!

Want to keep your kidney and give an eraser instead? Check out our new happy organ erasers and give one kidney or twelve.

What would it take to get you to give up one of your kidneys? A small car? A trip to Fiji? The health of someone you love? For one young man in China, all he needed in exchange for his kidney was an iPad 2. That, and $3,400 bucks. Folks are having a field day on Twitter, here are some of my favorite tweets: "He should've waited for the iPad 3" by @therealnickmack and "I've had a productive week, Got a new Kidney and managed to get rid of a faulty iPad" by @sickipediabot.
kidneyEleven years after a successful kidney transplant, Jim Wallace still appreciates his kidneys. So much so, in fact, that he and his wife have thrown a Kidney Party in celebration of his fabulous filtering organ every year since. They make kidney pie and serve kidney bean salad in honor of the organ. Very cute! {via Los Angeles Times. Thanks, Mom!}
