Operation Smile and Campus Book Rentals

No comments:
What is Operation Smile? Operation Smile is an organization of volunteer medical professionals that help children in low income and middle income countries by performing surgeries to correct cleft lip and cleft palate. Did you know....Every three minutes somewhere in the world is a child born with cleft lip or cleft palate. Did you know...A child born with cleft has twice the odds of dying before their first birthday. Children with cleft have a hard time eating, speaking and hearing. Since 1892, Operation Smile has helped over 220,000 children by giving them free surgical procedures to fix their cleft. Operation Smile helps these children when the families would never be able to afford the operation.

Are you a college student or know someone who is a college student. If so, continue reading to see how you can help a child in need.

Each time a textbook is rented from Campus Book Rentals a portion of it is donated to Operation Smile. Isn't that awesome?! By renting your textbooks you can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices, you get FREE shipping both ways, you can highlight in the textbooks, the renting periods are flexible, you will have the largest selection in the nation and if you are not satisfied with your rental there is 21-day risk free return policy.

How Does It Work: 

Campus Book Rentals has a new program. It's called RentBack. RentBack allows you to rent out your text books to other students. By using this new program you can make 2-4 times more money than you would get by selling them. Now, we all know that all colleges students could use the extra money don't we. 

Aren't these some awesome programs? You get what you need, while helping children in need.

If you would like to donate to Operation Smile, you can do so here.

"The Promise" by Beth Wiseman

No comments:

This is the first book that I have ever ready by Beth Wiseman. She's a great storyteller and I can't wait to read more of her books. While reading this book, I had no problem visualizing what was going on. It was like I was there or watching it in a movie.

About the book:
Mallory's search for happiness leads her to a faraway place. There she finds heartache, betrayal---and danger.
Mallory Hammond is determined that no one will stand in the way of her goal---to save a life. She had that chance years ago, and she failed to take it, leaving her adrift and in search of the real meaning of her life. Finally, she meets a man online from a volatile corner of the world who offers her the chance to find that purpose. But she will have to leave everyone she loves behind in order to take it.
Tate Webber has loved Mallory for many years. He understands that Mallory will never be happy with him until her deepest heart's desire is satisfied. When Mallory decides to travel across the world to fulfill her dreams, Tate begs her not to go but tries to give her the space she needs. Mallory embarks on her dangerous journey only to discover how swiftly and easily promises can be broken. And Mallory can only pray that she will make it out alive.
Inspired by actual events, The Promise is a riveting love story that asks the question: how far will we go for love?
