About The Thirst Project:
In 2007, 8 enterprising and conscientious college students decided to do something to help alleviate the global water crisis and raised funds to buy a fresh-water well for a community in desperate need of water.  Five years later and their combined efforts has created an outstanding organization that has raised over $2.6 million dollars, which has brought water to over 100,000 people.  Founded by Seth Maxwell, The Thirst Project endeavors to educate students throughout the United States on how they can help raise awareness to help with this desperate need for one of life’s most basic necessities.  Their goal is to conquer the global water crisis — one fresh-water well at a time.

At its third annual gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, hosted by Take Part, The Thirst Project not only honored the contribution of its hard-working volunteers, it also celebrated the efforts of Hollywood’s young elite who are willing to take the time to help raise awareness and funds for such a worthy cause. The gala was hosted by Pauley Perrette (NCIS) and Kirsten Vangsness (CRIMINAL MINDS) as they honored Chyler Leigh (GREY’S ANATOMY) and producer Nathan West.  Among the evening’s special guests were: Jason Ritter (PARENTHOOD), Sarah Drew (GREY’S ANATOMY), Seychelle Gabriel (FALLING SKIES), Matthew Fahey (AWKWARD.), Cassie Scerbo (MAKE IT OR BREAK IT), Misha Crosby (THE LYING GAME), Dylan Riley Snyder (KICKIN IT), Dale Godboldo (“Thor”), Yuri Lowenthal and Tara Platt (BEN 10: ULTIMATE ALIEN), Ryan Lee (“Super 8”), Scott Nevins (THE SMOKING GUN PRESENTS), and actress Felicity Wren.
