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.

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)

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Erinn Hayes is replacing Chyler Leigh in NBC’s Holding Patterns.
Hayes filled in for Leigh, who was under the weather and unable to attend the initial table read. Once Leigh returned and rehearsals began, the actress, sources say, did not have the same chemistry with the rest of the cast.
Zap2it had posted a little more of Chyler’s Holding Patterns character when they announced the news of Robert Buckley joining the cast of Holding Patterns.
“Holding Patterns” also stars “Grey’s Anatomy’s” dearly departed Chyler Leigh and British actor Humphrey Ker as the couple whose wedding is the reason for the plane ride.
Thank you to my ever amazing friend Olivia, I’ve added nine high quality pictures of Chyler on set of her new tv movie Window Wonderland from March 9, 2013. Chyler looks amazing and I’m really excited for this tv movie. Also, please credit us kindly if you are posting these anywhere else. Thank you.

TVLine first reported Chyler is starring as the lead in NBC’s comedy Holding Patterns. Below I’ve added information about the show and the news. Let’s hope NBC decides to pick up Holding Patterns for the new 2013-2014 TV schedule.
ETA: I’ve added more information from more articles including the name of Chyler’s new character and a little bit about the character!
Chyler Leigh has landed her first major TV gig since checking out of Grey’s Anatomy last May, scoring one of the lead roles in NBC’s comedy pilot Holding Patterns.
From Office scribe Justin Spitzer.Spitzer, Holding Patterns is a multi-cam ensemble about a group of friends whose lives are altered after surviving a plane crash.
Rachel Kaplan (Do No Harm) and Peter Traugott (Samantha Who?) are also attached as EPs.
Grey’s Anatomy alumna Chyler Leigh is set to topline NBC’s comedy pilot Holding Patterns, from writer Justin Spitzer, Peter Traugott’s TBD Prods and Universal TV. It is an ensemble multi-camera comedy about a group of friends whose lives completely change after they survive a plane crash. Leigh, repped by UTA and the Burstein Co, plays the sarcastic and free-spirited Leah, who ruins Griffin’s (Humphrey Ker) proposal dinner, and is the unintentional cause of the plane crash.
Unlike her role on the ABC medical drama, she’ll star as a woman who survives a crash in the multicamera entry “Holding Patterns.”
Chyler Leigh may not want to fly again anytime soon.
The former Grey’s Anatomy actress has been tapped to star in NBC’s plane crash comedy Holding Patterns, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The multicamera ensemble comedy from The Office’s Justin Spitzer centers on a group of friends whose lives completely change after they survive a plane crash. Leigh will play Leah, an irresponsible and absent-minded slacker who lacks direction despite her brains and sarcastic wit. She’s always been good at anything she tried and rather than attempt to become great has moved from one dead-end job to the next. She shares the ground floor of a Minneapolis duplex with her two best friends, Griffin and Sabrina.
Spitzer will pen the Universal Television comedy and executive produce alongside Peter Traugott and Rachel Kaplan.
For Leigh, the casting comes nearly a year after her Grey’s Anatomy character, Lexie, was killed off in a plane crash on the ABC medical drama.
Repped by UTA, Burstein Co. and Stone Meyer, Leigh’s credits include The Practice, Girls Club and That ’80s Show.
I finally got around to adding caps of Chyler in the show Reunion. Reunion had aired on FOX and sadly it got canceled and the show had only 13 episodes. Instead of linking you to all the episodes caps individually, I’ve linked you to the main category for the season 1 caps. Check out the caps below.
