1. Wells Innovation Students need your vote!!

The Innovation students in BUS 250 worked with people from all over the world on an online Amnesty International Challenge. The question: “How can technology help people working to uphold human rights in the face of unlawful detention?” Out of 164 ideas that were submitted, Amnesty International chose their favorite 16. AND ONE OF THESE IS FROM WELLS COLLEGE!! Today the Evaluation period begins. If you have a minute – it really just takes a minute –
please give some love to our Innovation students who have worked so hard on this very difficult challenge. As far as a login, you can use Facebook, or create your own account. Look for the concept “Help, I’m being detained and I can’t get free!” That’s us! Select “Evaluate” and then answer a few short questions about their concept.

2. Wells College TOMS Campus Club

Dear Campus Community,

New on campus is the TOMS campus club. This micro organization is built around the charity organization known as TOMS. For those who don’t know what that is, TOMS is a company that is dedicated to providing the bare necessity of shoes to children in poverty-stricken communities. This organization is formed around the motto: “One for One”, meaning for every pair of shoes that are bought, a pair is donated to a child in need.

The goal of this campus organization is to promote the TOMS cause, to enlighten the community of the tragedy that is being shoeless, and to partake in some of the TOMS-related activities such as “A Day Without Shoes”.

Anyone is welcome to join, in fact, I am hoping that many people will be interested. For more information, visit:


or just contact me, Zack Dvornicky-Raymond, at zdvornickyraymond@wells.edu

Thank you!
