Operation Gratitude and Pinger

I rarely advertise for anyone else as I often feel as though there are way too many companies trying to make money off military members, veterans and their families but this program sounds like a win/win!

On November 1st, (www.pinger.com) Pinger is kicking off a partnership with (www.operationgratitude.com) Operation Gratitude to strengthen connections to home for military abroad by sending care packages to deployed soldiers overseas.

From November 1st through Veterans Day on November 11th, the company will raise funds to support Operation Gratitude, up to $5,000. For each new download of the company’s free iOS and Android Textfree apps or free signup on Textfree Web, Pinger will give $1.00 to Operation Gratitude. The donation from Pinger will fund shipping for over 330 new care packages – just in time for the holiday season.

Pinger lets soldiers stationed abroad stay in touch with families, friends and loved ones for free — the company’s Textfree apps work over WiFi and data connections to let anyone, anywhere with access to a web browser or WiFi-connected device (smartphone/iPod touch/tablet) send free unlimited text and picture messages to and from the U.S. and over 25 countries internationally. Pinger’s Textfree with Voice for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad also enables free talking when abroad  back to the U.S.

Operation Gratitude seeks to put a smile on a service member’s face and express our nation’s appreciation by sending care packages and letters personally addressed to U.S. Military deployed in harm’s way, their children left behind and Wounded Warriors recovering in transition units.
