Falling Whistles is a campaign for peace in Congo. We sell the whistle as a symbol of protest and ask individuals to be whistleblowers for peace. We invest the proceeds from the whistle sales in Congolese visionaries, and in building a global coalition for peace.
We began with a small story inside our world's deadliest war; a single story of a single day. We learned of children sent to the front lines of war, armed with only a whistle. That story birthed our symbol and was forwarded around the world to readers who wrote back asking - what can we do? How can we help? We have been working to answer their questions ever since.
We started with no home, no office and no plan - just $5 and a dream worth our everything. We pulled desks out of dumpsters, put them in our garage, and launched a campaign toward a goal most called impossible - peace in Congo.
Three years later we are investing in six Congolese leaders working with 600 war-affected women and children. And today the coalition for peace in Congo includes 50,000 whistleblowers, 200 retailers, 77 organizations, 35 Congressmen and 16 Senators.
Join us and be a whistleblower for peace.
