I met someone last week wearing a beautiful whistle necklace. She told me the story of Falling Whistles. You're probably aware of the atrocities of war that plague the children of this world. The heartbreak is unbearable, but we feel helpless and unequipped to make change. This is why I have endless admiration for people like Sean Carasso, who began a non-profit organization as a vehicle for change after visiting the Republic of Congo.
Watch the video, read the blog and stories on the Falling Whistles site. 100% of the proceeds from each whistle sold is used to restore the lives of war-affected kids through rehabilitation programs and stateside advocacy.
Obviously, wearing a Falling Whistle also promotes conversation every time someone asks where you got your necklace. Let's all open our eyes to the world beyond our front door.
