I have a very good friend that has a son that was born with a cleft lip and palate and he has one of the most beautiful smiles I have ever seen!! Every 3 minutes a child is born with a cleft and 1 in 10 of those children die before their first birthday. The children who survive are often unable to eat,s speak, socialize or smile. They get looked at, stared at and teased by people who just don’t understand. There are tons of cases where the parents are unable to afford their surgeries that they need to lead productive and healthy lives.
That is where Operation Smile steps in!! They have been around since 1982 providing free surgeries to children and young adults who could not otherwise afford the much needed surgery. As a matter of fact they have helped over 200,000 people. Can you imagine, that is a lot of children that may not be here right now if this service was not available! Every child deserves a fair chance at life and Operation Smile helps give them that chance.
So any time I see a company that helps by donating Operation Smile I like to give them a big shout out!! Campus Book Rentals is one of those companies!! They are a company that offers college goers a more affordable option to buying text books. Instead you can rent them!! My sister is in college for nursing and let me tell you this company has really helped her out. Some people are afraid to rent text books but this company is really great!! You can save 40-90% off bookstore prices and they also offer free shipping both ways. You can even highlight in your text books and their rental periods are very flexible. They also offer a program called rentback which let’s you keep your books and rent them out to other students over and over again. This allows you to make 2-4 times the amount of money. So head on over to Campus Book Rentals and give them a big thumbs up from Sister’s Saving Cents for helping college students save money and for donation to Operation Smile with each textbook rented! They are getting two thumbs up from me!
