Campus Book Rentals with Operation Smile

Today I have some pretty neat people to introduce you to.

Operation Smile is a charity organization for children – donate non profit
Have you ever heard of Operation Smile?
Operation Smile mobilizes a world of generous hearts to heal children's smiles and transform lives across the globe.

They do amazing things to transform children's lives. They perform cleft lip and cleft palate reconstructive surgeries for kids who's parents can't afford it for themselves.
Every child deserves to smile, and as it says on their site, many cannot or are too embarrassed.

In just forty five minutes a child's life can change completely for the better.

And with that said, I have a very special sponsor to introduce you to.

CampusBookRentals offers college students textbooks to rent, some neat perks are as follows:
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods

Here's how it works:

And, to me, the neatest part about them is that they donate to Operation Smile with every textbook that's rented!
So not only are you getting a great deal on renting textbooks, but you are helping to change a child's life for the better!

CampusBookRentals also has a new program called RentBack.

RentBack lets you rent your books to other students, and each time they get rented to someone new, you get paid! You can make money on your own books! How great is that?!

November | Photography and Video Challenge 2013-2014

Don't forget to add your links to the October linkup (at the bottom of the page) here!
Let's flashback...
an introduction & challenge from Rachel Nicole on Vimeo.
(please ignore the thumbnail photo)

i decided that i will post all four themes for the photos at the beginning of every month, then you can link them at the end of the month when i post the linkup. 
i will be posting my photos and video(s) all throughout the month, and you can too (or do whatever you want).
i also decided i will make the video amount optional. it can be one, it can be two (it can even be three or four!), whatever is fine.
the themes for November are:

some of these are hard, some easy. it's supposed to be a challenge. you can be however creative you want to (for example,if the theme is "sister" like it was in September, and you don't have a sister, post a picture of a friend you know as well as a sister).
be creative, think differently and have fun! 
Also, you can do these themes in any order throughout the month.
You can do it however you want, but i'm going to try to take one photo per week, not all at once.
so, yes.
this is going to be my school year project. care to join me?
(i would love (seriously, it would rock) if you could include this button in each video/photo post)

Okay, let's see how I did here...

"The First Snow"
Now let's see how you did:
a few things to remember:
1) please put your name and then a slash then the name of the picture theme that it links to (or the video name)
2) please post a new link for each photo/video

month 2 | video 1
Happy Fall! from Rachel Nicole on Vimeo.
okay, i know this is a long video, but there are extras at the end, and it's the only video from this month.
i worked really hard to get this one done as early as it is (Nov 1st, say what?) (you wouldn't believe how long it originally was!), and stayed up late when I should have gone to bed because i'm sick. SO PLEASE ENJOY IT.
also, it's got everything...
PLUS! it features some of the kids who have been in pictures on here! (and yours truly...)
so please watch it!
