Falling Whistles

Instead of crappy corporate xmas gifts this year my companies donating time and money to creating a new website for the New Zealand Child Cancer Foundation. I’m on the project as UX designer, so working through the requirements, the wish list with the UX lead, PM and the amazing team at CCF.. then doing the IA and interaction design, working closely with our Visual Designer b/c it’s a site with such a strong message..

The research for the site has been pretty hard on the heart strings, and I’ve come across some pretty sad stories. The most recent is this one, the story of the Falling Whistles:

The world is changed by those who speak out. Whistleblowers. Rarely understood in their time, history looks back and calls them courageous.

Be a whistleblower for peace.

Buy the whistle and the proceeds go to support and advocate for war-affected kids. Wear the whistle, share the story, and speak up for them. Together, we’ll become the voice of a growing coalition to end our world’s biggest war.

Before I die I want to…..

The Before I die I want to… project was inspired by a combination of factors: (1) the “death” of the Polaroid, (2) a psychologist’s tool called safety contracts, and (3) a passion to get people to think about (and act upon) what is really important in their lives through this simple, very straight-forward question.
