Have you Smiled yet today?

Often I feel like most of us take for granted what we have; this includes food, belongings, love and money - BUT have you ever taken for granted your SMILE?  Think about it...

Have you heard of Operation Smile?  If not you need to check out what this agency stands for right now!  It is amazing what your smile can do for your life.  A simple "normal" smile can make life easier for so many children and that is what Operation Smile is all about!  


 Operation Smile, is a charity helping change the lives of children one smile at a time. They are an amazing organization that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on children who would never have the opportunity to have such a surgery due to the medical costs.  

Each year more than 200,000 children are born with a severe cleft condition-some are unable to eat, speak, socialize, or smile – that is heartbreaking and a HUGE number of children!  The conditions of a cleft lip can be painful and even affect the child's ability to speak and eat!  

  Operation Smile is an international charity organization that provides free surgical services to children around the world – changing the future of these kiddos.  FREE!  Amazing!

Donations are what keep these surgeries happening – make sure you and your family seriously consider donating to this organization. Some of those donations come from CampusBookRentals.com for every time you rent textbooks – so if you or anyone you know are in need of text books please consider using Campus Book Rentals! 


Operation Smile: A Smile is A Universal Right!


I smile when I see my son's smile - how lucky we are.  Be thankful and thoughtful when you look at your child's smile.  Thoughtful in a small donation maybe?
