On December 8th, you put on the MEHEARTSNY fundraising concert at the UCCPA.  Despite pea soup fog, the Coloradas played a great show, and the people who made it gave generously to support vitims of Hurrican Sandy.  Nikki Licata and her crack baking team raised hundreds of dollars through sugar!  Cory Thompson and Beth Sarber mc'ed, and Alyssa Marini took photos of everyone having a good time.  We had displays from different UE sections, as well as information from guests who manage disaster preparedness in Waldo county. Greg Rossel from WERU spoke about the importance of community media for keeping people connected during crises.
At intermission, Bob Vandeventer announced that NERT had spoken a businessman in the disaster area who was so impressed that a little school in Maine wanted to help his community, that he agreed to match all of the funds raised!  With the generous support of the Unity College President's Office and all of the points you earned through missions in the game, that brings the total raised through your efforts to:
Congratulations! You should all feel proud of having taken a class exercise and turned it into something meaningful for people in need. Well done!
The section that rised the most, both through game missions and fundraising leadership was:
Section 3!
And the students who raised the most were:
Nicole Licata & Beth Sarber!
Congratulations to all of you, and thanks for a great semester!

  • Mission 11: Upcycling
    Hello everyone,
       November 23rd is Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year.  At least, it used to be, but of course now we all have different priorities than we did a few years ago.  There are lots of folks out there envisioning a different way to give for the holidays, and we can do the same.  This blogger has some great suggestions for what we can salvage out of the cars everyone is leaving by the side of the road now that they are too expensive to drive.  There's lots of useful gear in those machines!  For your mission, choose from one of the following options and post a picture and quick story about which you chose:
    a. DIY: Buying gifts is one thing, but with packaging and shipping more expensive than ever, could you make gifts instead?  Pick someone on your holiday gift list and make them something by hand instead of buying it.  Post a picture of your hand-made gift and let us know who it's for and tell us a little about your craft.
    b. Upcycling:  What is upcycling?  How is it different than recycling?  Do a little research and write a quick explanation, than create an upcycled gift for a friend and show it to us.

  • Mission 10: Going Home
    Hello Unit-Y!
       Most of you are probably home for the holiday this week, some of you to cities and suburbs.  What is your home like without oil?  RockLobster thinks that you can bring some country wisdom back to the cities to help people survive.  What is easier in the city, and what is harder? 
       This is a holiday for being thankful and appreciating what you have.  Dessum9 sends us a thanksgiving message from her college, and worries about people out in rural areas.  But I think we are lucky out here, and I'm thankful to see how hard you all are working to help out people in need.  The MEHEARTSNY concert is only a few weeks away, and there is lots more to do!  You all have pledged to help out with all of our fundraising missions, and if you follow through we'll also raise more money from the President's Office.  So make sure you don't forget to complete your missions!
       In the meantime, your mission for today, should you choose to accept it, is to talk with your family about what their lives would be like without oil.  How would it be different at home than here at Unity?  What could your family do to use alternative sources of energy?  Describe the scenario to them, and write a post in the Completed Missions section describing your conversation.

  • Mission 11: Upcycling These are candles made from my wax melter at home. Every time I would add a new wax, I would recycle to old wax and place in a dixie cup. Every layer is a new smell. All you do is drill a hole in the center and place a wick in it. Its very easy to do and makes a great gift for your friends who love different smalls. These are holiday based, such as apple spice, cinnamon, pine tree, etc. Wonderful gift for this time of year.Upcycling is reusing something for another purpose. A common example would be making a tree decoration out of soda cans. So, instead of recycling, where you reuse an object for the same ...
