About This Campaign
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.
