Doc Hendley          

Global Humanitarian, Clean Water Crusader, Top 10 CNN Hero, Sustainability Advocate

Doc Hendley is the founder and president of Wine To Water, a non-profit that radically transformed the process of bringing clean water to people in need anywhere in the world.

A musician and former bartender, Hendley launched Wine To Water in 2004 while bartending and playing music in nightclubs in Raleigh, North Carolina. At that time, he traveled to Darfur, Sudan and with the money raised, began installing water systems for victims of government-supported genocide.

For his work saving thousands of lives, Hendley was named one of the Top Ten CNN Heroes in 2009. Hendley is also an author. His compelling story of an ordinary bartender changing the world through clean water, called "Wine to Water: How One Man Saved Himself While Trying to Save the World," was published in 2012.

Doc is a frequent speaker, and often leads Wine To Water filter build programs. Filter builds are hands-on, socially responsible experiences for companies and organizations to assemble filters and make their own strides in alleviating the world’s water crisis.
