Operation Smile + a way you can help

Statistics say that every three minutes a child is a born with a cleft lip and 1 out of 10 of those children die before their first birthday! Operation Smile is an international charity made up of medical professionals who have performed over 200,000 free cleft surgeries for children all over the world since 1982. With that said, they have been "the largest volunteer-based medical charity providing cleft surgeries."
I can only imagine the gratitude that the parents and children must have toward those that have helped heal a life-threatening deformity in their lives. Not only that, but to be able to change lives because you absolutely love it and want to is so rewarding for the medical teams.

Operation Smile brings hope to families and puts a beautiful smile on innocent, loving children all over the world!
Want to know how you can help? Campus Book Rentals has teamed up with this amazing organization! With every text book rented, a donation is contributed to Operation Smile. What better way to get books for college at a GREAT price and help such a great charity at the same time!
I have actually rented from Campus Book Rentals back when I was taking my nursing pre-reqs and had a great experience. It's so much cheaper to rent your books and it's free shipping both ways! They also have a new program called Rent Back where instead of selling your books, you can rent them to other students and make more money. Cool right?
I KNOW how expensive books can be for school (been there, done that) but you don't have to pay the crazy prices. Save your money by renting textbooks from Campus Book Rentals and be a part of a life-saving charity! It doesn't get any better then that!
Have a great day friends!
