TurtleGram_Feb2014The Marshall Women’s Studies program is selling “Turtle-grams” (cuddly stuffed turtles) for Valentine’s Day. Each turtle is “handmade with love,” according to organizers of the event.

Pre-ordered turtles can be picked up at the Memorial Student Center on Wednesday, Feb. 12, and Thursday, Feb. 13, between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.. Other turtles will be available for sale at those times as well.

Each turtle is $10.00.  50% of the proceeds will go to Branches Domestic Violence Shelter.
