As I've mentioned before, I am working on my Master's in Social Work Degree. I'm currently completing my field placement in a large, urban school district. Some days I feel like I'm making a huge difference. Other days I feel like I'm dealing with far too much Jr. High drama. Regardless, I'm loving it.
This field placement will be done at the end of April. Then it's back to classes, classes, classes. Which means its back to the expense of overly priced, not terribly helpful textbooks. Since starting my masters, I have been renting books whenever possible. It saves me a ton of money and keeps me from having to resell books I've barely used every eight weeks. CampusBookRentals has been one of the most affordable sites I've come across.
I was recently contacted by CampusBookRentals asking if I would be interested in learning more about their services. Well, I was already a fan. They save me money, have good quality books, and ship free both ways. What's not to like?
I've found a reason to like them more. With every book rented, CampusBookRentals donates to Operation Smile. Finding this out means that CampusBookRentals will be my first, and likely last stop when searching for textbooks.
Operation Smile operates in over sixty countries to provide comprehensive medical care for those born with cleft palates and cleft lips. This includes seeking to train local medical professionals to appropriately diagnosis and treat clefts. As a result, Operation Smile provides life-saving care and sustainable program development around the world. This gives kids the chance to live, and live will. It increases the likelihood that children born with clefts will survive their first year and go on to participate fully in being a child. There are few greater gifts to give than this.
We are living on one income while I attend school. Saving money is important. If nothing else, it lets me feed my unhealthy addiction to pretty fabric from time to time. CampusBookRentals has saved me hundreds of dollars over the course of my education. I am thrilled to know that saving money is also helping give back to an organization that is helping kids thrive. If you're looking to save on the outlandish price of textbooks, I highly recommend that you check CampusBookRentals out!
