Have you ever heard of Operation Smile? It is a great charity organization that provides surgical services for children and young adults born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities. Many of these children are unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places these children are shunned and rejected. And more often than not, their parents are unable to afford the medical expenses necessary to correct their deformity.
The organization is made up of medical volunteers, student youth programs, and community volunteers. One of those volunteers is Campusbookrentals.com, who has teamed up with Operation Smile for 2011 and have committed to donating enough to cover a minimum of 1,000 life changing surgeries. If you have a child or grandchild in college, or you ARE a college student, consider renting your textbooks from Campusbookrentals.com because for EVERY book rented in 2011, they will donate a portion of those proceeds to Operation Smile with their sights set on meeting and exceeding their goal of 1,000 lives changed. And not only that, renting your textbooks is WAY cheaper then purchasing them outright. Both of my younger brother and sister used this service and they had no complaints. Every textbook they needed was available and came in a timely fashion. Shipping (back and forth) is all prepaid, so just drop your books in the envelope provided and drop off at your local UPS drop-off site and you are set!
Give a child a smile today!
