According to their website, the poop is “purportedly cast from the excretion of [Suri’s] first solid meal…the baby poop [is cast] with a bronze finish and mounted on a base that includes a brass plate engraved with baby Suri’s name.”

The proceeds from this sale will go to the Kristin Brooks Hope Center, a charity dedicated to preventing suicide by treating various types of depression. Ironically, one of the Hope Center’s specialties is treating post partum depression; the illness that actress Brooke Shields sought treatment for, resulting in a heavy rebuke from Scientologist Tom Cruise. The actor has since apologized for the incident.
