Falling Whistles Event

Did you that in some countries, children are being used as human shields? Sean Carasso contacted me and he was in the Congo last year and ended up in the warzone. He discovered an illegal prison for kids where the kids were being used as HUMAN SHIELDS to protect the soldiers at war.

Each child were given a whistle to blow upon fire at the Congolese soldiers and their bodies are thrown into piles into the aftermath. Sean is actually having Friday, Dec. 4 in New York to bring awareness to the cause.

Details below:


WHAT: FALLING WHISTLES, NAU and THE ELDRIDGE  present: THIS HOLIDAY, GIVE GOLD. Celebrate with Falling Whistles  as they unveil the Gold Whistle!

WHEN: Friday December 4th 2009, 7-10PM, After Party 11pm - 2am

WHERE: NAU Pop-Up Store 69 Mercer, Soho (Between Spring & Broome) THE ELDRIDGE 247 Eldridge St, Lower East Side (Between Houston & Stanton)


WHAT: Falling Whistles has created provocative and educational retail spaces in both Steven Alan and Fred Segal in Los Angeles. Come see their first New York installation at the NAU Pop-Up in Soho featuring Live Music by Bajah and the Dry Eye Crew. Immediately following the event, there will be an after party at The Eldridge with DJ Phresh.

WHY: Falling Whistles is a campaign for peace in Congo, working to rehabilitate and advocate for children living within our world's largest war. Originally just a journal written about boys sent to the frontlines of war armed with only a whistle, readers are now demanding to know - what can they do? Falling Whistles launched with a simple response - make their weapon your voice and be a whistleblower for peace. On December 4th New Yorkers have the opportunity to join Falling Whistles as they unveil the gold whistle and their first NYC installation.

To learn more about Falling Whistles, we have included a link to our press kit for your convenience.

Through December, The NAU pop-up store in Soho in collaboration with Falling Whistles will feature this unique installation built by Nathanael Balon and will be selling the limited addition gold whistle. For more information on the campaign visit: www.fallingwhistles.com
