San Jose, June 13, 2000 – Just in time for Father’s Day, MediaRing.com Inc. (“MediaRing.com”), a global leader in voice communication services on the Internet, has teamed up with USA Greetings.com to announce two exciting new promotions. Throughout the month of June, families will have the ability to stay connected for free via live Internet calls or pre-recorded VoizCardT greetings. This alliance provides users with an incredibly rich and vibrant way to communicate with Dad via the Internet.
MediaRing.com will offer a free Web-based service that allows users to make superior quality PC-to-phone calls to and within the U.S. and Canada. Unlike other PC-to-phone services MediaRing.com users do not need to download or install any software or player to make calls.

VoizCard allows senders to record and attach their own voice greetings to the electronic cards they select at USAGgreetings.com. Both the greeting card and the voice message are delivered simultaneously in a user-friendly manner over the Internet. With a simple click, the card’s recipient is able to hear the sender’s personal greetings.
“Father’s Day is a time to thank not only your father, but all of the father figures in your life including stepfathers, uncles and grandfathers,” said Bob Nelson, director of marketing, MediaRing.com. “USA Greetings.com and MediaRing.com are delighted to provide this special opportunity to families all over the world.”
“We are pleased to offer our users both the traditional and future of Internet greetings for this holiday,” said Suresh Reddy, CEO and co-founder of USAGreetings.com. “It will be a great way to reach fathers everywhere.” The Free Calls and VoizCards to Dad campaign begins on Sunday, June 18th.
