Find out what's happening on our team!

Hello Everyone!

This exciting newsletter is a way for me to learn more about the features of Smore, and how we might use them for our newsletters. Please excuse the fact that this doesn't make perfect sense- just a test!!

An added bonus is that I will be able to see what type of data we can get from these if we decide to use this tool.

Stay tuned for a quick report from me later this week that will include a pro/con list and some more complete information about this tool.

Have a lovely week!!

The Daily Show - Night of Too Many Stars - Enter to Win Tickets to Jon Stewart's Final Taping

Featured Employer of the Week - Omaze

How much would you pay to meet Jon Stewart and support Night of Too Many Stars? $100? $1000? How about $10?

Omaze was born when the founders realized that celebrity experiences auctioned off for charity were limited to those who could afford to drop several $1000 for the privilege. Using a crowd-funding model, Omaze provides a chance to win a star studded experience, and raise money for a corresponding charity. The sky's the limit on how much can be raised, but each bid remains a flat fee, usually around $10.

Omaze is excited to be recruiting here at Stanford, and are looking for new ways to make their mission more visible to our students. They are primarily hiring for PR and Marketing positions.

Look for them at upcoming 2015/2016 events!
