Great accessories can make an outfit, but a great accessory that helps a great cause is a win-win. What may appear to be another “It” accessory is actually a symbol for peace in the Congo. While traveling in Africa, Falling Whistles founder Sean Carasso found himself in the middle of the war in the Democratic Republic of Congo. He witnessed first hand how the war affected the children, many of whom were sent to the front lines of fighting armed with nothing but a whistle. The Congo in Africa is home to one of history’s deadliest wars, and frequently children are stolen from their families and forced to fight for rebel armies. Some of the children are not big enough to hold guns, so they are given whistles and put on the front lines of battle. Their only duty is to make enough noise with the whistle to scare the enemy away, but often they are shot by enemy fire. The whistle is a symbol of protest. Wear your protest. Help the children. Wear your whistle and join a growing coalition for peace in the Congo. 100% of the proceeds from the sales of Falling Whistles go to rehabilitate and advocate for the freedom of war affected children in the Congo. Hear the story from Carasso himself, and help spread the word by becoming a whistleblower for peace.
The original Falling Whistle retails for $34, as well as brushed metal and gunmetal versions for $44. The gold Falling Whistle is $104. These beautiful accessories make great gifts for birthdays and special occasions, and it’s wonderful to know that you are helping children by contributing to a worthy cause.
