Making a Difference: Operation Smile

Operation Smile is a truly wonderful organization that helps families by providing free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the globe.

Since 1982, Operation Smile — through the help of dedicated medical volunteers — has provided more than 3.5 million comprehensive patient evaluations and over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.


Companies such as Campus Book Rentals have partnered with Operation Smile to help them in their cause to provide families these life-changing surgeries for their children that they couldn't afford otherwise.

We can help too. If you have a child in college, or getting ready for college next year, or a friend, relative or neighbor with a college bound child, think about renting college books from Campus Book Rentals. They make a donation to Operation Smile for every textbook rented. (renting is cheaper than buying the books - and you can return them postage free!)

For example - take this biology book....


This  is listed online for $174.99 at Amazon. But you can rent this book  for $63.58 instead with free shipping both ways. Read it, even highlight in it, and when you are done with it, just mail it back to them - free.

So see- renting is a great deal.

If you know anyone who needs to buy books for school or even just for their own use - mention how they can rent the book for less than buying it, and in doing so can help make an unbelievable difference in a child's life.

Did you know that every three minutes a child is born with a cleft —  sometimes so severe that they cannot eat, speak, socialize or even smile?
