Pinger Helps Deployed Troops Keep in Touch with HOME!

We are excited to help deployed service members stay in touch with their spouses, children, extended family and friends — so that is why we are excited to share this news with you!

Pinger, the company behind the innovative Textfree apps for iOS and Android that make texting and mobile calling free, today announced its partnership with Operation Gratitude and a donation pledge of up to $5,000 in recognition of Veterans Day:

For every new download of the Pinger Textfree and Pinger Textfree with Voice apps as well as any new user sign up for Pinger Textfree Web between November 1 and Veterans Day on November 11, Pinger will donate $1.00 to Operation Gratitude to support its care package programs.

The $5,000 donation from Pinger will fund over 330 new care packages to be shipped, just in time for the holiday season.

Pinger’s Textfree apps enable military personnel to choose their own local U.S. phone number to send and receive texts, picture messages and talk for free to friends and family in the States from anywhere in the world they are deployed.

We think this is great! With this donation, we will be able to further our goal to send even more care packages to deployed troops, something we know is an important way to help keep them connected to those who support and care for them back home.

About Operation Gratitude

Operation Gratitude annually sends 200,000+ care packages to Veterans, First Responders, New Recruits, Wounded Heroes, their Care Givers, and to individually named U.S. service members deployed overseas and their families waiting at home. Each package is filled with food, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, as well as personal letters of support. Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of the Military and First Responder communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for civilians anywhere in America to express their appreciation to all who serve our nation. Each package contains donated product valued between $45 and $100 and costs our organization $15 to assemble and ship. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 1.6 Million Care Packages.
