Flash Post: Whistleblower


What It Is: In light of Remembrance Day today, I thought it only fitting to find a peaceful present idea to pass along to you. These necklaces come courtesy of an organization called Falling Whistles, as part of a campaign for peace in the Democratic Republic of the Congo – home to an extremely bloody, decades-long war that has claimed the lives of millions of people. The whistles themselves are symbolic of being a whistleblower against the serious crimes against humanity happening in this nation, and are meant to be eye-catching enough that someone will ask you what the necklace is all about. To aid you, every necklace actually comes with a journal to help you tell the story of what’s happening in the Congo, and why it needs to stop. Funds go toward helping the organization produce additional materials and sessions to both spread awareness and rehabilitate Congolese communities.

Who It’s For: Your political science major cousin, as a birthday gift that aligns with their world awareness. Your CNN-loving brother, to give him yet another conversation starter. Your teaching friend, so she can find an opportunity to educate her class on what’s happening on the other side of the planet. And really…anyone.

What It Costs: $34 – $55 depending on the style you choose.

Where It’s At: The Falling Whistles store.

    Interesting idea… their website is rather sparse on information about the issue and their organization, though. #CGG
