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.
I am a huge fan of twelve south, having used their BookArc for the longest time, and lusting over the BackPack and MagicWand. Their latest stroke of genius is also known as the PlugBug, a ‘parasitic’ device to latch onto your MacBook power brick and gives it an additional USB charger port for all your other iDevices. Yums!
If the barrage of bag brands out there seem all too feminine for your butch taste, these offerings from Klein Tools are bound to appeal to the manly man in you. Made from heavy-duty canvas and rivet reinforced for durability, these bags, first designed to carry tools (heavy heavy tools) will do ok for your iPads and moisturisers. Finished off with leather handles and bases, there is no more excuse for lugging around that Crumpler anymore.
