Campus Book Rentals and Operation Smile

Today Campus Book Rentals has asked me to share some with you some great information about how to save money on textbooks as well as a great way to help others with Operation Smile.

When I was in college the price of buying textbooks each semester drove me crazy, especially when professors would add like six books to their list, then only have us read two of them.  As you all know, I'm teaching myself now and have a master's as well, but many of my co-workers are working on their masters degrees and I hear them complain about the cost of textbooks.  That's where Campus Book Rentals comes in.  They offer:

-prices that are 40-90% off of the bookstore price
-free shipping both ways
-you can highlight in the textbooks
-you can chose how long you need the book

The also just started a program called Rent Back. Here's how it works:

One of the great things about Campus Book Rentals is that that with each book you rent they donate money to Operation Smile, very cool, right?  Here's what Operation Smile is all about:

A simple smile, in an instant it can change someone's day.  It's something most of us take for granted, and something that doesn't come easily to all: that's where Operation Smile comes in.  Operation Smile is an organization whose medical mission is to deliver safe surgeries to those with cleft palates in places where access to surgery may not be available, frequently in the developing world. They combine the talent of medical volunteers from different countries with the best practices in surgical care to meet two goals: immediately transform the children they treat while creating self-sufficient, long-term solutions. 

 Operation Smile transforms the smiles, and not to mention the lives, of children with cleft palates in as little as 45 minutes with the cost of $240.  Pretty amazing, right?  Their website states: "Our international medical missions consist of a team of credentialed medical professionals from around the world who travel to an Operation Smile partner country to treat children throughout a two-week period."

When going on a medical mission, 300-500 children receive full medical evaluations and 100-150 children are surgically treated. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, like Campus Book Rentals, they are able go on international medical missions each year in and give medical care to individuals who wouldn't normally be able to receive it.

You can help too!  Consider donating to Operation Smile, and change a child's life forever.
