I just received an email early this morning from Skype giving free call and text voucher to the users in the Philippines. Citing impact of typhoon Haiyan or locally named Yolanda, Skype gives free vouchers that is equivalent to a 60-minute call or text messages using Skype.
I’m not sure if the voucher is transferable, if it is please let me know if you need one and I’ll give mine.
Below is the email I received. I deleted the voucher code.
