Operation Smile and Rentback Books

I recently learned about an organization called Operation Smile that provides surgeries for children born with facial abnormalities, such as cleft palate. The problems of the cleft palate go deeper than just the social stigma of looking different than one's peers. Ten percent of these children die before their first birthdays. Those who live often face problems such as not being able to eat, speak, smile, or socialize. This wonderful organization provides medical treatments in the form of paying for costly surgeries that these kids' parents wouldn't be able to provide on their own.

Fifty-three medical volunteers recently completed a mission to Guatemala City where they provided surgeries to 149 children. In order to make these life-altering procedures possible, Hospital Militar donated five sanitized rooms for the week. 

While there, team members were inspired by two-year-old David's mother's fussing over her child before the doctors put him under anesthesia. Love speaks every language. The biggest surprise of this mission was how smooth everything ran. It must be awe-inspiring to witness so many good deed doers at once making dreams come true. 

They were not the only ones helping this to happen. Many people and organizations provide funding for Operation Smile. One such organization is Rentback Books. For each text book that you rent, Rentback will donate money to Operation Smile. This way, you can enjoy the satisfaction of getting school textbooks at a good price while solving a world problem.

Here's a video to show how they work.



Some perks are:
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-we donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
