A Springfield man with colon cancer who has been told he has just months to live is selling advertising space on his urn. Aaron Jamison told KVAL-TV he hopes to raise $800 to help his wife Kristin pay for the cost of his cremation.
One friend, restaurant owner Dustin Remington, has already paid $100 for an ad. Jamison plans to hand-paint the ad on his urn.
The story is here and I thank Daniel Lippman for the pointer. In the meantime, also from Daniel, a town in Washington state sells on eBay for $360,000.
