Operation Smile is an international charity that physically changes the life of children around the globe by giving them smiles. Let me quote a portion of their mission statement here – 

“Operation Smile mobilizes a world of generous hearts to heal children’s smiles and transform lives across the globe.

We believe that all children deserve to live their lives with dignity. And for those suffering from cleft lip, cleft palate or other facial deformities, dignity begins with a smile.”

Did you know every 3 minutes a child is born with a cleft, and that 1 in 10 of those won’t live to see their first birthday?  That is simply staggering statistics!  Especially when the knowledge to fix these deformities is here. That is why Operation Smile has been working since 1982 to bring smiles around the world. From in country local training to providing access to free, safe surgeries, Operation Smile is working hard to bring smiles around the world that truly change lives for good. Numbers attest to that at 3.5million patient evaluations and over 200,000 free surgeries performed for those who cannot afford this life changing procedure. 

College Students Can help!



What am I talking about? College students can barely afford to eat after buying their textbooks and other essential college materials. Well, guess what, you CAN help out Operation Smile, simply by renting you textbooks from Campus Book Rentals. With every textbook rented, Campus Book Rentals, donates to Operation Smile through their Making A Difference Program. This year, they have committed to donating a MINIMUM of 80 surgeries for cleft deformities. Just reading their simple commitment, I can tell this is a company that truly cares, and wants to see a smile on every child’s face.

Not only will you be able to get your textbooks for less, Campus Book Rentals has a new Rent Back program, that allows you to rent textbooks you already own through them to other students. This can make you 2-4X as much as buy back options!  Learn more about Campus Book Rentals.

Share your Smile!

Providing cleft surgeries makes a Big difference, in a Big way. Spreading smiles does not have to always be so large though. A small smile as you pass someone on your walk to school, giving the cashier a smile and politeness can turn their day around, and the simplest yet often overlooked Smiles that happen in the home can change your every day.  So take a moment today, and smile – because you can!
