If you've been listening during Spring Fundraiser, you've heard about the Water of Life filters that get released with each $40 a month donation through Compassion International. These filters are sent to families in developing countries so they have clean drinking water - and the best part is that they last for a lifetime! Each filter is guaranteed up to 1 million gallons, and uses the same technology as kidney dialysis to filter out dangerous pathogens.

So Johnny, Stacey and Traffic Tom decided to test one of these filters out for themselves! This week, they walked down to Sligo Creek behind our studios, which belongs to the Anacostia watershed to see how well it worked. Watch the video to check it out.
