Send Water to Flint

The water crisis in Flint, Michigan is any parent—really any person’s worst nightmare. But helping isn’t as straightforward as it seems—while sending bottled water is nice, it’s short-term, inconvenient, and wasteful, for a lot of different reasons. A better angle? Water filters. Salem Lutheran Church created an Amazon wish list that lets you use your Prime account to send Zerowater Filters (check out goop water expert William Wendling’s description of these filters and the extremely safe, low TDS water they produce) to those in need with one click. And if you’d prefer to let the folks in Flint decide where the need is most urgent, you can always make a straightforward monetary donation to the stalwart organizations battling it in the trenches.
