Falling Whistles

Under the most unlikely circumstances, the would-be founder of Falling Whistles, Sean Carasso, found himself in the middle of a complicated rescue of five child soldiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo.  Those boys were eventually freed, but their story and the fate of all of the boys’ fellow child soldiers stayed with Sean.

The children who are too small to carry a gun are given a whistle instead, sent to the front lines, and ordered to alert the soldiers of oncoming danger with a blast of the whistle.  No protection offered, no choice but to face the enemy.  Die or play dead.  

Falling Whistles advocates for peace in the DRC through political channels in the U.S. and abroad.  They sell Falling Whistles necklaces and tee shirts to help fund their efforts.  Pick up one of these statement pieces and read about FW’s progress in the DRC on their blog.  Thousands of whistleblowers thank you.
