Almost 1 Billion on our planet don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water and proper sanitization. That’s one in every eight of us. 4,400 children die every day from diseases caused by contaminated water. That’s huge. That’s approximately one child every 15 seconds. 80% of all global diseases are water-borne and result from drinking contaminated water. These diseases kill more than 2.2 million people every year.

How did you first get involved with this cause?
Seth Maxwell, who developed Thirst Project, is an incredibly charismatic and energetic person — infectiously so — in the sense that he is so passionate about raising awareness about the need for water in Africa. He has done tremendous work on college campuses, working with students to make the awareness come through the younger generation, which is extraordinarily important. I met Seth when he was just starting everything, and my husband and I loved the cause, plus Seth has such a huge heart for Africa and the dire needs of 1.1 billion people who don’t have access to clean water. I don’t think people understand the statistics of just how many people that is. My husband and I have funded several wells, and when I see pictures of child drinking from those wells, I start crying. How simple a thing that is, clean water — and we take it for granted. (x)
Chyler and Nathan have donated 15,000 dollars to build a well in Swaziland, Africa (x

I have to give a HUGE thanks to Mel for the caps of Chyler in Grey’s Anatomy Flight, as I couldn’t bring myself to cap the episode. I’m not going to say much because I’m still in shock with everything last night. But I’ll say this, I want to thank Chyler for giving all of us 5 amazing years on Grey’s Anatomy. I’ll miss Lexie a lot. I can’t wait to see Chyler go on and do other things and be amazing!!!!!!!

I’ve added HD logoless caps of Chyler in Grey’s Anatomy Moment of Truth, last nights episode. We had a good amount of Chyler/Lexie in the episode. Watching the ending scene and Lexie breaking down into tears was so hard to watch and I couldn’t help but cry myself. Chyler was absolutely amazing last night in all her scenes. I hope you enjoy these caps.
