Saving the stump?

Does anyone plan to save the stump from the umbilical cord once it falls off?

I would just throw it away but it fell off today and DH told me about a tradition in his culture to throw the stump in a place to create a good omen for the baby. Ex. If you want your kid to be an MD you throw the stump somewhere on a medical school campus, or on a certain field if you want them to excel at a sport. It reminds me of scattering someone's ashes but whatever. Now we just need to figure out where to put it! I'm thinking on the local college campus.
