Operation Smile





Have you ever heard of a cleft lip or a cleft palate? Have you ever seen pictures of the sad children or even adults with cleft lip? Have you heard the stories? If your anything like me it's probably something you haven't paid to much attention to or that your even familliar with. Did you know that some of these children are considered outcasts or cursed? Some of them are even malnourished. And more then likely they are all made fun of. Can you imagine going through life like that? I agree with the people of Operation Smile that 'every child deserves a smile'. How sad to go through life without a smile. Childhood should be full of laughter, fun, and smiles galore! 



So I've partnered with Campus Book Rentals to let you, my readers, know a way you can help these children get a smile! 





"We're ecstatic to announce our 2011 Making a Difference Program. We have officially teamed up with Operation Smile, an out of this world, awesome organization, that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on children whose families could not otherwise afford it. The long term Improvement in quality of life for the children that receive these surgeries is almost incomprehensible. We have committed to donating enough to cover a minimum of 1,000 life changing surgeries. We hope To beat that number, but it's a significant commitment.

So for EVERY book rented starting now, we will donate a portion of those proceeds to Operation Smile with our sights set on meeting and exceeding our goal of 1,000 lives changed. So add that extra book to your cart, and consider this goal as you go back to school this year. Thank you for your support?"


So if you go to collage consider renting your books from Campus Book Rental this year or tell your friends who go to collage about Campus Book Rental and let them know how they can help give a child his smile!

Operation Smile is such a wonderful program. Awesome that Campus Book Rental is teaming up with them. I am long out of college now but sure will keep them in mind when my son heads out next year!

Operation Smile is a fantastic organization! I love that larger companies are giving something back. That makes me want to shop with the retailer when I know that they are doing something good. Nice post!

What a great program. We keep a money jar for Operation Smile in the house for loose change. If you find money or change on the floor in the jar it goes!

I wish there was such a thing as renting books back when I was taking classes. It would have meant so much savings. To top it off, I could have been indirectly donating money to a worthy cause.

How neat - I remember the first time I found our about cleft lips/palates - I was young and so heart broken. I was very releaved to know that they are normally able to fix it. This is great that this company is donating a portion of every rented book! The Lord will repay them for their kindheartedness.

Thanks for sharing with us!

Blessings~

My brother has a cleft lip and palette. I can't imagine the families in other countries that can't get the surgery. He gets his payed for since my mom is low income :)
