Books for Smiles

Good Morning!  Today, on behalf of Campus Book Rentals, I'm switching gears to discuss an amazing international charity, Operation Smiles.  As one of the most prominent charities for children in the world, they work in over 60 countries to heal children’s smiles and bring hope for a better future for these children.  This is a charity that is dear to me.  I worked in Pediatric and Neonatal ICU for 11 years, and took care of many babies who were born with cleft lip and cleft palate.  I know first hand the struggles these babies have, and an organization like Operation Smiles provides these children with a future filled with hope.

Operation Smile has a gift catalog  or a monthly donation program where you can help these precious children.  And if you're in college or if you have a family member in college, know that Campus Book Rentals donates to Operation Smile with every textbook rented.  They've already donated over 1,000 cleft lip surgeries this year. 
Here are the perks of renting your textbooks with Campus Book Rentals:
  • save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
  • free shipping both ways
  • can highlight in the textbooks
  • flexible renting periods
  • and they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
Here's a short video to show you how it works.

Lastly, Campus Book Rentals now has a new initiative that can earn you some money.  Rent Back allows students to rent the textbooks they own to other students.  Which can make you 2-4 times more money compared to what you would make through a buyback option.

So in closing, here are the highlights: 
  1. Campus Book Rentals saves you money when you rent your textbooks.
  2. Rent Back gives you the option to make money on the textbooks you own and
  3. Operation Smiles receives a donation with each textbook rented.
I hope you'll consider Operation Smiles for your next charitable contribution and Campus Book Rentals for your next textbook purchase.

Have a great day everyone!

  1. Thanks for sharing Becky. I know many of our daughter's friends are now renting their textbooks. It would be nice to know in doing so you are also giving back.
