Falling Whistles and Swedish entrepreneur Daniel Laurén have teamed up to further the non-profit’s campaign for peace in the Congo, as well as spark conversation about the ongoing natural resource war in the impoverished country.
A year after meeting Falling Whistles, Lauren became fascinated by the company’s entrepreneurship and work toward peace. As a philanthropist, humanitarian and auto enthusiast, he realized the opportunity to marry his passion for cars with social good, and elevate the discussion of Congo… by turning his Audi R8 into a symbol, wrapping it in a design by Falling Whistles Art Director, Mario Salangsang.
The car’s graphics depict a growing/shrinking outline of Congo, representing the five generations of colonial rule endured by the country. On the side of the car, a black circle reads “6.9 Million Dead,” the estimated amount of deaths in Congo since 1994.
The Audi R8 will be driven around Stockholm and neighboring cities to ignite conversation and inspire discussion on the situation in Congo from Sweden’s public. For more info, visit FallingWhistles.com
