Operation Smile Review and a Giveaway

Were ya'll aware that you can rent college textbooks?  I don't have anyone in college but when I was offered the chance to share two great websites, and a giveaway I couldn't pass it up.
Campus Book Rentals makes it very simple.  You search the book you need, rent it, and receive your books with free shipping.   They have a 30-day guarantee.  Any book can be returned within 30 days for 100% refund.  You rent your books for as long as you need them, whether it's quarter, or semester with a 15 day grace period for that last minute cramming for exams.
There's tons of perks. Monthly giveaways, textbook scholarships, shirts, and other prizes. Registration is free and you do not have to be a paying customer to win.

But best of all they support the children of Operation Smile.

 They 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. They have committed to donating enough to cover a minimum of 1,000 life changing surgeries. They hope To beat that number, but it's a significant commitment.

So for EVERY book rented starting now, they will donate a portion of those proceeds to Operation Smile with their sights set on meeting and exceeding their 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 what does all this have to do with a giveaway.  Operation Smile has generously offered a wonderful chocolate covered fruit basket.

To enter please leave a comment , telling one thing you read about on the Operation Smile website. 
Deadline will be next Monday, September 5, 2011.


  1. I just read a great story about "A Better Life and Future for Lang Cheng Xi" on their blog. Such a touching story.

  2. This is such a wonderful program. I watched a tv documentary on it not too long a go!
    Wish my hubby knew about the rent a book program...we spent a forture on text books for his Masters Degree! We cant even sell them because he has highlights all through the books!

  3. My heart went out to Pelón, Eberto and Mariano, who were the patients that were shy and had to leave their familiar surroundings to go away for the surgery.

  4. They need volunteers to help share their cause, complete smile service projects and raise funds — so that children across the globe can receive free, life-changing surgery.
