Any of you out there attend college, or have children that do? I am sure you know then, that along with the rising costs of classes, you also have to plan for purchasing books. Many times these books are quite expensive, and then once class is over, you will never use them again. So, what do you d?
I know of a company that can help, at least with the cost of books. Campus Book Rentals actually rents you your books at a fraction of what you would pay for them. Not only do they rent them out, but they also allow you to highlight in the books. Wow! Another perk? Free shipping both ways on books rented from Campus Book Rentals. They say you can save 40%-90% off the bookstore pricing.
If that is not enough, for every book rented, Campus Book Rentals donates to Operation Smile. So, along with getting a great deal on your books you are helping someone else.
A little about Operation Smile:
At Operation Smile, we're more than a charity. We're a mobilized force of medical professionals and caring hearts who provide safe, effective reconstructive surgery and related medical care for children born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft lip and/or cleft palate. A baby born with a cleft has twice the odds of dying before celebrating their first birthday. The children who survive are often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places, they are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford the surgeries they need to live a productive life.
Every child deserves access to safe, quality surgical care. Every child deserves a future filled with hope.
That's where we come in as the largest volunteer-based children's medical charity providing free cleft surgeries. Since 1982, Operation Smile — through the help of dedicated medical volunteers — has provided 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with facial deformities. Our work creates a lasting global impact. We train local doctors in developing countries and strengthen healthcare systems so more children in some of the poorest areas in the world can be treated.
Perhaps you have already purchased your books, so you are not interested in renting textbooks. Maybe you would like to hear about their new program Rent Back. This program allows you to rent your used books to other students. That way you will be able to see a return on your expenses for textbooks. Be sure to check out their website for more information on how this works. It sure is better than selling them at a yard sale years down the road.
