You know how people skim off your card and commit a lot of offences with it? The Navy Seal Aluminum Wallet from The Ridge has got you covered from digital thieves. Instead of the hassles of keeping it in your back pocket–making it an easy target for finger smiths, this wallet is designed to stay in your front pocket making it accessible for better ease of use. The official Navy-Blue version of the Ridge wallet is specifically designed to block RFID-skimming devices. It holds up to 12 cards and has a cash clip. 10% of sales goes back to the Navy Seal Foundation, an organization that provides immediate and ongoing support to veterans and their families. How cool is that!

There is nothing that touches the heartstrings as fighting for equal rights, world peace and the rights of women and children. Sean D. Carasso founder of falling WHISTLES coined the name when visiting Congo, a country ravaged with civil war and social unrest. Sean found that children who can barely think for themselves were forced into battle with nothing other than a mere whistle that they had to blow when they see the enemy– thus making them the first line of defense and leaving themselves open to multiple bullet wounds. Support the campaign for peace. Whistles come in gunmetal, bronze, brass, black and copper.
