Field Note #122: Filter Builds for Global Communities


This March, I had the joy of attending three W|W Filter Builds. At these events, we partner with domestic organizations and businesses to assemble Sawyer water filters for those in need. It is a great way for people to come together locally and make a difference for someone on the other side of the world. At each of these events, I love to meet such passionate people that take the time to serve others.

One element to the Filter Build that was recently added was the option to write a personal message to the family receiving the filter. This quickly became my favorite part of the Filter Build. It’s a chance to strengthen the relationship of two global communities. Reading through these notes, it was easy to see how impactful the program can be. It amazes me when I see people put such thoughtful intention into providing for others. I feel blessed to be a part of W|W.
