Campus Books and Operation Smile

I can't believe it's only a month until Christmas break, seriously time is flying at school.  While I'm still in busy teaching mode, college students are thinking about finals and preparing for new classes starting after Christmas. That being said, Campus Book Rentals has asked me to share with you some great information about how to save money on textbooks as well as a great way to help others with Operation Smile.

Buying books for college or your master's degree isn't fun and it can be pretty expensive too.  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 master's 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 have a cool program called Rent Back, it allows you to rent textbooks you own to other students and make much more then selling books they already own back.  Here's how it works?

Another cool thing about Campus Book Rentals is that that with each book you rent they donate money to Operation Smile, which I think is really great.  Here's what Operation Smile is all about:

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 lives of children with cleft palates in as little as 45 minutes with the cost of $240. I can't believe that's all it takes!  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."

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.
