I love when companies reach out beyond their normal sphere to help others. Every day, it is easy to be absorbed by our own lives--problems big and small. But, when we acknowledge the world outside of us, we can often find people in desperate need of our help. Operation Smile is an international charity that does just that---reaches out to those all over the world to help children with facial abnormalities such as cleft palates receive the treatments that they need to survive and lead productive lives. In addition to helping these children, Operation Smile trains doctors in their locals to perform these lifesaving treatments to help more and more children thus amplifying the organization's impact. Today, 1 out of 10 children with a cleft palate will die before their first birthday. Operation Smile is working hard to change that reality.

Here is a little video that demonstrates how simple the rental process is.
In addition to renting your own textbooks, CampusBookRentals.com also has a program called RentBack where you can actually rent your textbooks out to other students. I remember being upset when the bookstore would only offer me $1-2 per textbook when I sold them back. With the new rent back program, you have the potential to actually earn money off of these books. Once again, something worth looking into when you are on a limited budget!
I really love that CampusBookRentals.com not only helps students maintain their budget but also donates to Operation Smile along the way. Operation Smile is making a great impact in children's lives throughout the world. CampusBookRentals.com's contributions are helping the organization making strides. Plus, when students rent from CampusBookRentals.com, they are not only saving money but helping a great cause! Win, win!
