What is the Watermelon Filter on TikTok? And How to Get it

If you’ve been on TikTok recently, you might have noticed a watermelon filter.

There are multiple watermelon filters on TikTok that claim to help Palestine.

They are “Filter for Good”, “Help Watermelon”, “Freedom Leap!”, “Collect for Good”, and more.

If you’re seeing these filters on your “For You” page, you might be wondering what they are for.

In this guide, you’ll learn what the watermelon filter is on TikTok, how to get it, and whether it’s a scam (Israeli–Palestinian conflict).

What is the watermelon filter on TikTok?

The watermelon filter on TikTok was popularized in November 2023 and was created to support the people of Gaza.

Each filter will start generating revenue when it reaches 200,000 qualified video publishes within its first 90 days and has a maximum reward of $14,000 USD.

The creators of these filters claim that they’ll donate the revenue that they’ve earned to support Palestine/Gaza.

A watermelon is being used in the filter because it represents the flag of Palestine (red, black, and green).

The most popular watermelon filter on TikTok is “Filter for Good” which was created by @xojourdanlouise.

Jourdan is an AR Creator on TikTok who is known for making glamour filters.

In early November 2023, she created the “Filter for Good I” filter.

It’s a game where you’ll have to drag a watermelon across a line to collect watermelon seeds.

The creator of the filter claims that she’ll donate all of the revenue that she earns to charities providing aid in Gaza.

In about 2 weeks, the filter hit a maximum reward of $14,000, and she said that she’ll get paid on December 15 when she’ll donate the money.

How to get the watermelon filter on TikTok


USE THIS FILTER 🍉 to help the people of Gaza. As an AR creator, I am part of the Effect Creator Rewards program – basically like the creativity fund but for effect creators. This allows me to earn money for each unique video published using my effects*. I have created this FILTER FOR GOOD effect and will be donating the rewards earned to charities providing aid in Gaza. I know many of us don’t know how to help, but it can be as simple as posting a video with this filter! *Effects only can start earning rewards once 200,000 people have posted a video using it, so we need 199,999 more — which seems like a lot but it can easily be achieved! Please comments, save, and share to boost and encourage everyone to use this filter 🍉 #newfilter #effecthouse #watermelon #free #blackgirlsintech #activism #augmentedreality #socialchange #filterforgood
