Operation Smile. And books.

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Operation Smile. You've heard of it, right? They are an international children's charity that provides reconstructive surgery for children born with facial deformities, especially cleft lip and palate. With the help of medical volunteers, they are able to perform thousands of surgeries that will help those kiddos have a much brighter future.

I can't really imagine the feeling of having a child with a facial deformity, and living in the United States, I would have the luxury of so many options at my fingertips. Children in other countries don't always have that option. So for these surgeons and nurses who volunteer their time and talents to help them, I am so thankful. This kind of thing is right up my alley. 

So when CampusBookRentals.com approached me about doing a giveaway that would also help promote Operation Smile, I was all in.

Here's the deal... some of you readers are college students, right? So some of you could use some help with textbooks for an upcoming semester? (Had this been a few months ago, I'd be raising my hand high!) CampusBookRentals.com has offered to giveaway a $50 off coupon that doesn't have an expiration date that you'll be able to use toward renting textbooks! A portion of each one of their book rentals goes toward Operation Smile, which makes me feel even more excited about their company.

I'll announce the winner this coming Monday, April 2 - and all you need to do to enter is to leave a comment with your first name, your email address, and what your major is if you have one (because I'm curious). :)

If you win, I'll send you the coupon code!

Good luck!

  17. Operation Smile is such a great organization! I love the work they do to help children with facial deformities. It's not just cosmetic work, it can help their quality of life :)

    I'd like to enter since this upcoming fall I'll be leaving home (for the first time!) and transferring to a new college as an English Major. (Wanting to teach secondary education!)

  24. Science is not something in which you need to depend on other to get a result, if one has good skill then there should be no reason to say that only because ofsome biological difference one can’t do well good in a certain field.
