Google Helps Military Families Stay In Touch With Free Holiday Calling Cards

Google has teamed up with Blue Star Families and Sesame Street to offer a $10 calling credit to help military families connect during this holiday season, reports Google's official blog.

Google launched Google Voice in August, which operates in Gmail and allows users to place free calls to the United States and Canada. With this calling credit, stateside family members can stay in touch from the United States with loved ones serving overseas.

These international call credits can be used to make calls with Google Voice or from right inside Gmail, and will provide families with roughly 30 minutes of call time to Afghanistan, 60 minutes to Iraq, or hundreds of minutes to many countries in Europe and around the world.
