Falling Whistles Project

Have you guys heard about the Falling Whistles Project?

From the website:
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. Proceeds go to rehabilitate and advocate for war-affected children. 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 really recommend reading the story though because it's quite moving. There are whistles priced in all different price ranges and I'm planning on getting one as soon as I'm not so broke. This whole project got me all teary eyed and I wanted to pass it on. It's nice knowing there are people who still give a damn in a world rife with apathy.
