Rebtel, a global calling service, is offering the ability for anyone to call China or Myanmar for free due to the recent tragedies in both countries.
This would be helpful for families, non-profits trying to contact people in those countries to distribute aid and journalists looking to call these countries.
A typical one hour call to either country would cost over $100. Rebtel works
without use of a computer to make calls. Anyone can add their contacts phone
numbers to the site and get a local 415 or 510 number that they use to call
*WHEN *May 14 through May 22
