Giving a Healthy Smile-Operation Smile

Happy Tuesday everyone!
I thought I'd take a minute today and write about a very worthwhile organization that is dear to my heart:
(From their website:)

Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that heals children's smiles, forever changing their lives.
As a children’s charity, we measure ourselves by the joy we see on all of the faces we help. At Operation Smile, we're more than a charity. More than an NGO. We're a mobilized force of medical professionals and caring hearts who provide safe, effective reconstructive surgery for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate.
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft — often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places these children are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a normal life.
That's where we come in as an international charity providing much needed surgical services. Since 1982, Operation Smile — through the help of dedicated medical volunteers — has provided more than 2 million patient evaluations and over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.
As one of the most prominent children’s charities in the world and with a presence in over 60 countries, we are able to heal children’s smiles and bring hope for a better future.
Thanks to the generosity and spirit of volunteerism shown by our supporters, we heal thousands of children per year. With your help, how many lives can we change tomorrow?
For years  I've wondered how I could help these children who are born with cleft palates. Being a mother myself, I have a passion for children's charities {I have been a volunteer at many different children's organizations}
and Operation Smile is one of the best ones out there!
With our help, Operation Smile can provide the surgeries needed to make these children's lives better. After all, what makes a person happier than giving a big smile?
And now, Campus Book Rentals.com will donate a portion of book rentals on their site to Operation Smile! 
So if you or your child are a college student and need to get your books for the upcoming semester, SAVE your money and SAVE a smile by renting your textbooks {I know my daughter will be getting her books there from now on}
