Falling Whistle is an online journal trumpeting for peace in Congo, and retails posters and these beautiful whistles as a source of funds for the project, as well as encouraging advocates to wear them loud and proud.
Falling Whistles gives a small window into our world’s largest war. Originally just a journal written about boys sent to the frontlines of war armed with only a whistle, readers forwarded it with the same kind of urgency in which it was written and demanded to know – what can we do?
The Falling Whistles campaign launched with a simple response – make their weapon your voice and be a whistleblower for peace in Congo. Read the story and buy the whistle. Together we partner with local leaders to advocate and rehabilitate for those affected by war. Share their story and speak up for them.
Together, we’ll become the voice of a growing coalition for peace in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
A beautiful and touching campaign video by Singaporean Director Boo Junfeng of Sandcastle fame, for Pink Dot, a yearly event at Hong Lim Park where Singaporeans come together to show their support for the LGBT community of the freedom to love.
The social stigma that LGBT people carry is often overlooked when we talk about homosexuality. The freedom to love and the comfort of being yourself, things many LGBT people hope to have, are often taken for granted by straight people. I felt that it was necessary to highlight everyday situations in which LGBT people experience such a stigma. Beyond the event on June 18, I hope the video will continue to empower and inspire empathy for LGBT people.

A moving piece by Jacob Cass.
A massive 8.9-magnitude quake hit northeast Japan on Friday, causing dozens of deaths, more than 80 fires, and a 10-meter (33-ft) tsunami along parts of the country’s coastline.
In response, I created a small tribute piece which I shared on Dribbble and soon after on Twitter. I found it humbling to see people changing their Facebook & Twitter profile pictures to this image to show their support. I thought I would officially share the image & source here for people to use as they wish.
A great idea by Minsung Bae, combining a lamp and a humidifier, where the wasted heat energy emitted by the lightbulb is captured and converted to electricity by TGMs(thermo-electric modules) and used to power the humidifier. That, and it looks great!Read More
Now doesn’t this leave a great taste in your mouth. Via Japan Trends.
A new web service, Tada Yasai (”free vegetables”), as the name suggests, is offering people veggies completely without charge.
You do have to pay the delivery costs but essentially there is no catch. The vegetables and fruit are simply left-overs from local farmers in Saitama and Gunma, including produce that is not necessarily fit for the supermarkets (e.g. because the potato is an odd shape). Rather than waste the food they will send it to people who don’t mind eating “imperfect” vegetables. Since it comes straight from the fields the taste or freshness won’t be any different to what you buy from the shelves.
