If you, or a loved one are going to college right now, chances are you know how expensive it can be to purchase all of the textbooks you need. I just recently learned of CampusBookRentals.com, where you can rent brand new and gently used textbooks for about half of what you'd pay in a school bookstore. It's easy to find what you need on their website, saves you money, and saves you the hassle of trying to sell them when you're done with them if you're not planning to keep them. They even offer free shipping, and 30-Day risk-free returns! Plus, they have a buy-back program, and might be interested in your used textbooks as well.
Something that I love about this simple service, is that CampusBookRentals.com supports the mission of Operation Smile. Operation Smile is a mobilized force of medical professionals and caring volunteers who provide safe, and effective reconstructive surgery for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate. They strive to help heal children's smiles, and make the world a better place.
CampusBookRentals.com have teamed up with this charitable organization to help perform life changing cleft lip surgeries for children, when their families could not otherwise afford the operation. These surgeries greatly improve the quality of life for these children. Before surgery they are often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places these children are even shunned and rejected, for looking differently...something that they have no control over. Heartbreaking!
CampusBookRentals.com has committed to cover a *minimum* of 1,000 (one thousand!!) surgeries for children, and with your help, they can beat that number and provide even more! For every book that is rented, they will donate a portion of the fee to Operation Smile. You should definitely check them out!
