To honor the sacrifice and heroism of America's military families, Google, Sesame Street, and Blue Star Families are teaming up to offer free $10 call credits to military families starting with the 2010 holiday season.
Before they were famous, many truly influential men and women started by serving their country in the US military or grew up in military families.

$10 Military Credits From Google Voice and Gmail

Posted:

Google Voice and Gmail Calling are working to carry military service members' voices home for the holidays, and long after the holiday season as well, at a discounted price.

To honor the sacrifice and heroism of America's military families, Google, Sesame Street, and Blue Star Families are teaming up to offer free $10 call credits to military families starting with the 2010 holiday season.

According to Google Product Marketing Manager Michael Bolognino, there is no better way to utilize Google's communication technology, Google voice and Gmail calling, than to comfort military families separated from their loved ones during their time of military service.

VOICE TO VOICE CONNECTIONS FOR MILITARY FAMILIES

The $10 Google Voice and Gmail Calling credits will provide about 30 minutes of call time to Afghanistan, 60 minutes of call time to Iraq, or hundreds of minutes of call time to countries in Europe and around the world. All calls made with the credits must be made from the U.S., but there is no expiration date for when the credits can be used - which means you can continue to stay in touch with deployed soldiers long after the holiday season is over.

HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR FREE $10 PHONE CREDITS?

In order to be eligible to the $10 phone credits, military families must be registered with nonprofit network Blue Star Families or with military family social network site Sesame Street Family Connections. If you are not already registered there is still time; at goo.gl/voicemilitary registration is free and easy.

The 2010 deadline for military families to sign up for $10 call credits is Dec. 22nd.

The Google $10 call credit will apply for military families making international calls using Google voice or Gmail calling. Google voice and Gmail calling are only available in the U.S. where phone calls to U.S. Google users are absolutely free.

A FUTURE OF MILITARY CONNECTIONS

Gmail Calling and Google Voice made a positive impact on military family closeness for the 2010 holiday season. If the program is successful, we hope to see Google and their partners, Sesame Street and Blue Star Families, make the Free $10 Calling Credits an annual holiday offer to keep holiday connections between soldiers and their families strong, and easier on your military budget.
