What's a whistle worth to you?

To a child soldier in the Congo, this could mean living another day.

Falling Whistles is an organization that sells whistles as a symbol for peace in the Congo and more importantly to raise money to rehabilitate, educate, disseminate, congregate, advocate for the people affected by the war in the Congo, known as the deadliest war in Africa's history and it continues today.

Why whistles? On his trip to Congo in 2008, Sean Carasso, founder of Falling Whistles met a group of former child soldiers who told him that some children who were too young to carry weapons were sent into battle armed with only whistles, as a way to distract the enemy. If you're going to wear a statement accessory, wear one that really makes a statement.
