March 13th through 21st is our Spring Break and this year we have an opportunity to use the filter making experiences developed within our group to really make a difference for one of our sister organizations (FilterPure) operating out of the Dominican Republic and Haiti.   Lisa Ballantine, who founded and leads FilterPure, has asked for our hands. We contacted and let her know that we would be willing to send a group down to help staff the filter facilities in the Dominican Republic. They have already dramatically increased the number of filters they are producing in response to the earth quake in Haiti and need more trained hands.

Check back for more details as they develop.
