For those unaware I have been involved with a non-profit called Falling Whistles for a couple of years. The company’s goal is to bring peace in the Congo though raising awareness. They have built their brand around a whistle, which they have established as a symbol for peace. Recently I had the opportunity to get more involved with building there brand awareness in Canada. Over the weekend a group of us hosted a small gathering called Portraits for Peace where we took pictures of a few local people who came out to support the cause.
These are the few of the unedited pictures (aside from changed into b & w) from the night. We will be doing a larger event on December 10 (Human Rights Day), so look out for the details after the jump.
Special thanks for Angel, Brian and everyone who came out that evening!
