This is the best app out there for international calls. I've tried a few others over the years. (Dave, NY on, the platform dedicated to expats worldwide, launches a touching Facebook contest on the first International Homesickness Day in history, September 27, 2016. The contest will bring the winner $10 Voice Credit for international calls, which for many calling destinations means a large amount of minutes.

Those who enter the race starting September 27 will only have to leave an honest and personal comment to the video post on Homesickness Day, saying what they miss most about home. The winner will be selected randomly using an online tool.

$10 Voice Credit brings plenty of calling minutes with To have an idea, that means 515 minutes to call India landlines or mobiles, up to 384 minutes to call Nigeria, or 1250 minutes to call Romania. The minimum purchase, though, is only $2 Voice Credit.

Voice Credit on allows customers to make international calls in 3 different ways, at the same low rates available on the Rates page:

The International Homesickness Day is powered by thanks to fans' feedback. Most of customers are expats from all over the world and what they have in common is homesickness. The campaign introduced Homesickness Day to the world few weeks ago by sharing timeline videos received from expats who confessed what they were missing most about home. Eastern Europeans, a Filipinos, a Vietnamese, some Bolivians and a Mexican took the floor first.

The message of the campaign on Homesickness Day is an optimistic and revelatory one: "It's OK to be homesick!" It is a natural side effect for someone who lives away from the root culture. Everyone in the diaspora feels the same for their origin culture, people and motherland.
