Wine to Water is the true story of Doc Hendley (pictured to the left) and his journey to help solve the water crisis. Doc has a humble beginning as an ordinary bartender, but he has an energetic personality and love of people that soon fuels his mission to make a difference.
When Doc learns about the world’s freshwater crisis he is shocked by the severity, much as I was while reading the book. However, while most of us would be saddened and surprised to learn the great suffering of people without water, we would stop there. Doc is compelled to do something about it. He begins by starting a non-profit organization, Wine to Water, and before he even knows how best to make an impact, he is raising funds through wine-tasting events and gatherings in his hometown. To his surprise, the organization starts spreading like wildfire as friends of friends become interested in spreading the word and donating money to help the crisis.
