50Give Overlaps with GiveBlog…Falling Whistles

The Positive Present Give Blog crosses path with 50Give…I will be wearing a silver Falling Whistle for the entire journey!

Read the blog entry below or view on the Positive Present Give Blog.

Keith,

Hey it’s Ian! There is a cause that has become really important to me. The story of the children whose lives have been displaced, and bodies destroyed because of the war in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Children are taken from their homes at a very young age, trained and forced to go into battle. The children who are too small to hold and fire guns are given whistles and sent to the front lines! there they are told to blow the whistles when they see “the enemy”. Obviously they are the first casualties in the battle. The idea of this going on in the world i live in hurts bad.

The Falling Whistles Campaign (takes it’s name from the whistles the kids are to blow) raises money for the advocacy and rehabilitation of these children. The money is raised through the proceeds of a necklace fashioned from a whistle. My request is a simple one, take MY whistle necklace and wear it on your journey, research this amazing organization at http://www.fallingwhistles.com/main/
and share the story. Spread the word, and the website info… You know where I am, or email me a time we can meet, to give you my whistle! Don’t worry, i will get another one! Thanks Keith, for what you are doing, and for letting me share this with you and your readers!

Ian,

I would be honored to wear the whistle and thank you for the generous gift!

I will also share this information on the 50Give Blog, Positive Present Facebook page, and talk about the Falling Whistles on the 50Give tour.

I love your positive vibe and can’t thank you enough for this gift!

Keith
