Buying A Star

I had always thought that the purchasing of a star was along the lines of owning a pet rock, but then I got to thinking. (No comments from my dear friends about the possibility of hurting myself!) I digress, I got to thinking about the fact that in my lifetime I’m most likely not going to receive a call from NASA asking me if I’d like to go for a little ride.

Space is fascinating and, okay, truth be told stargazing is an occasional pastime for me. Armed with the knowledge that I won’t get a phone call from NASA and if I had enough money to buy my own shuttle, I would probably buy handbags and shoes instead.

So what’s the next best thing? Possibly owning my very own star. Thinking about others, buying a star for your insignificant other, or marking the birth of a child with such a purchase is definitely a cool trend. Integrating this into an even cooler trend is finding a company that donates a portion of its proceeds to charity and there are “star-selling” companies that do this.
