A one-of-a-kind Cabbage Patch doll designed by Ellen DeGeneres for charity will be launched into outer space by gaming company GoldenPalace.com. The company is launching a spaceship into suborbital space, and it will also contain a soccer ball signed by soccer superstar David Beckham for charity. The doll features a tailored Italian wool suit, a shirt with pearl buttons, signature boxer shorts, a diamond necklace, and a "Dory" doll (DeGeneres's character in Finding Nemo). A space suit will be provided for the journey. The space flight is designed to raise awareness of charity and space flight; both items will once again be sold for charity after making the flight.
