Toenail charity 4213

Nailing Down Some Charity

There is no tip-toeing around by a group of Taranaki Salvation Army parishioners who are raising funds for their local foodbank – they’re auctioning a toenail that has been grown and cultivated for a year.

The toenail, still attached to the foot and growing, has so far reached a top bid of $7.50 – almost enough for two cups of coffee.

The proceeds will be donated to the Hawera Salvation Army’s foodbank.

The auction webpage, on TradeMe, describes the nail as a “good honest Kiwi male nail”.

“Offered here for auction is your chance to own 1 only prime porcellus carnivarous keratin (middle toe nail) that has been carefully groomed for one year for you!”

The winning bidder has been promised a 12mm long of prime nail, neutral coloured no artificial additives, no steroids taken by the donor and free shipping to anywhere in New Zealand.
