Maybe you have some old books laying around, why not turn those into cash?! Rent Back is another great resource, here is a snapshot of how it works.
Another great thing about Campus Book Rentals is that with each textbook that is rented they make a donation to Operation Smile. Operation Smile and its more than 5,000 medical volunteers are working every day around the world to provide safe, effective and free cleft lip and cleft palate reconstructive surgery for children all over the world. We are an international medical humanitarian organization that works in over 60 countries that is dedicated to raising awareness of this life-threatening issue and providing lasting solutions. Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft. One in 10 of those children will die before 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 to give them the surgeries they need to live a productive life.
Save money and help a child in need, I can't think of a better combination!!!
