MU Gallery - Call for Earrings
Help raise awareness for the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women across the US and Canada. We are creating a traveling art exhibit displaying 1,181 earrings (one-side or one half of a pair) to symbolize the Indigenous women who were stolen. The exhibition will open on February 9 in the Memorial Union Gallery. Bring or send one side of a Native-designed earring (or an earring you’ve lost one side to) to the Memorial Union Gallery and help shed light on this important epidemic.
Call For Makers - MU Gallery Store
The Memorial Union Gallery Store is calling for handmade products by NDSU students, faculty, staff, and alumni. We would love to see what you create! Fill out a consignment application (found on the website linked below) and send pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Help Support the the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities'
A Pepsi Recycling center that was recently installed in the Memorial Union.
To help PepsiCo reach its goal of increasing the U.S. beverage container recycling rate to 50 percent by 2018, PepsiCo created the Dream Machine recycling initiative. Dream Machines are interactive kiosks that provide students and college and university communities with an easy, convenient and rewarding way to make a difference by recycling their bottles and cans on the go. For every bottle or can students place in the Dream Machine, they receive reward points to redeem for prizes, including local entertainment, dining and more. It's a win-win for everyone.
When you recycle your bottles and cans with PepsiCo Recycling, we provide dedicated support to further the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities' mission to provide training in entrepreneurship and small business management to post-9/11 veterans with disabilities resulting from military service.
$2 Million - Pepsico is donating up to $2 Million to EBV with $1.5 million donate since 2010
4.1 Million - pounds of recycled bottles and cans have been collected via PepsiCo Recycling to support EBV.
