– Great Prices AND Operation Smile!!

A new college semester has begun and Boo has jumped right back in after taking a couple semesters off.  She is trying to finish up her general ed and debating over her choice of majors: Poetry or Linguistics?  In order to help keep the cost of school down, we are using for Boo’s textbook needs.

We use because:

  • we can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
  • they offer free shipping both ways
  • Boo can highlight in the textbooks
  • there are flexible renting periods
  • Boo can rent out the textbooks she owns through partner and make more money than she would buy selling them back.

But the biggest reason we use is that they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented.  In fact, they have committed to donate a minimum of 80 additional surgeries between June 2013 and June 2014.

Operation Smile is an incredible organization that forever changes children’s lives through reconstructive cleft lip surgeries. The long-term improvement in quality of life for the children that receive these surgeries is almost incomprehensible. operation smile

From their website, here is some of the mission of Operation Smile:

Every child deserves the ability to smile and a chance to thrive. But in many parts of the world, children with cleft lip and cleft palate are hidden away, too embarrassed to attend school and face uncertain futures because their parents cannot afford to provide the surgery they need.

Our free, life-changing surgeries take as little as 45 minutes, and can give a boy or girl with a facial deformity a lifetime of smiles. Plus, every child we heal creates a ripple effect on the child’s family, community and country.

Our medical volunteers span six continents — surgeons, anesthesiologists, pediatricians, intensivists, nurses, speech therapists, nutritionists, dentists, child life specialists and so many more. They do far more than provide free surgery for these children; they provide comprehensive care to treat the whole child.

Imagine an older child whose cleft palate is fixed, but is still unable to speak — or a child who has never before seen a pediatrician or dentist before they encounter Operation Smile. Many of our patients are severely malnourished because their parents don’t know how to breastfeed a child with a cleft. Our medical teams give our patients specialized care so they can live healthy and productive lives.

So the next time the student in your life needs books for his or her classes, or needs some cash for the books they’ve already purchased, please consider for all your textbook needs.
