Team Red in the Dominican Republic

About This Campaign

Team Red is volunteering with Wine to Water in the Dominican Republic. As a family (Hudson, Tina, Caleb, Elissa and Merryn) we felt the call to "tithe our time" and live a more intentional life together, outside our culture, immersed in Spanish, connected to community, on a journey of faith. We don't know exactly what is ahead of us, but we are inspired by the vision of the Wine to Water staff and the team in the DR with Aqua Pura.

Since our younger days in East Africa, we have held onto a dream to have our children experience life abroad, away from status quo schedules under control; on the edge where people, faith and miraculous meetings determine next steps; in mission to discover the greatness of God in community. We are a family on an adventure journey together and we believe that our passions exist to make a difference and live a bold, courageous life that strengthens the human soul.

You can join us on this journey.
  • Support clean water projects in the DR with a donation to Wine to Water.
  • Join a Wine to Water service learning trip to the Dominican Republic!
Hudson and Tina met in East Africa and have lived in Uganda, Zaire, Cameroon, Myanmar, Costa Rica, the United Kingdom, and the USA . Before leaving for the DR we were privileged to work for Mattern & Craig (Hudson as an engineer) and MAHEC (Tina as the Director of Development).

"Every good gift is from above." James 1:17

This is the time we are giving to Wine to Water to learn from the Dominicans, to build partnerships, to embrace life together. We know we will learn about the problems of water access and water quality in a country with great disparity. We want to connect to youth and families so we can share life together. We hope to build partnerships and friendships that are empowering and sustainable, not only for the causes of water, but so that our Creator's plan for wholeness and beauty can be realized in families and communities. We will also surf, hike, ride bikes & boogie boards, kite surf ........

Wine To Water

Campaign to Support Wine To Water

We're a small team based in Boone, NC, who believes ordinary people, in community, can make an extraordinary difference in the world.  This movement began in 2004 when our founder, Doc Hendley, while bartending in Raleigh, NC, learned about the world’s water crisis.  Once captured by the cause, Doc felt the need to do something about it.  So, he did. He did what he knew best…pour some wine, beer, and spirits, play some music, and have a great time with friends. When it was all said and done, a few thousand dollars was raised due to the generosity of the community.  With some money in hand, Doc soon found himself in Darfur, in the midst of a war, working to provide clean water to those who were in desperate need in desperate times.  Thus, Wine To Water was born.

    Hudson, It was a pleasure to work with you for the short time I did. You will be added to our families prayer list. I think is is awesome what your family is doing in this day of me first. Our top priority should always be Gods Kingdom, although it is not. Keep us updated. The Foote Family

    Dear Hudson & Family, thank you for your volunteer work and the cause. This will be the experience of a lifetime and will gift your family with a greater closeness. There's something amazing about seeing how other countries learn to survive difficulties and how they express gratitude for what we can give them. Enjoy. Sonia Salgado Danielson
