About the cause
Blow the Whistle, an anti-crime initiative, is a national campaign adopted by Legacy Lifestyle as its CSI initiative. The initiative not only strives to protect all woman and children of South Africa and empower them by giving their voices back, but collectively seeks to help the country as a whole through the manufacturing and distributing of whistles. We hope that our efforts, together with your support, will enable us to help protect all citizens.
How we aim to make a difference
Blow the Whistle will see the manufacturing and distribution of fashionable, compact whistles at schools, universities, work places, garages, nightclub exits, shops and homes, to women all over the country who will use these tools to alert others nearby when feeling threatened, or in harm or danger.
The campaign not only seeks to give woman a voice against crime, but also encourages men and other citizens to react to the call of need, activating the community to work together against crime. The intention is also to use the proceeds raised from sales to fight crime in South Africa, with the initial funds being channeled to purchase much needed rape kits for rape victims so forensic evidence can be obtained to prosecute the rapists themselves.
Download the App
With this app, the user is able to appoint four contacts as angles to watch over them. If the panic button in the app is pressed, all angels get a SMS notification of alert and approximate co-ordinates.
In addition we have developed a journey dashboard which enables users to select start and finish destinations and approximate time of their journey. Should the user not extend or cancel the times, then the app notifies your guardians.
