Falling Whistles is a grassroots campaign aimed toward bringing awareness to the world's biggest war and being your own personal whistle-blower for peace. Buy purchasing a whistle necklace, you will be helping children that have escaped the front lines of war by rehabilitating them through education, art, sports, music, human rights education, vocational skills training, medical treatment and nutritional services. I LOVE my whistle necklace!
