About the cause: Doc Hendley dreamed up the concept of Wine To Water while bartending and playing music in nightclubs around Raleigh, NC. In February 2004, Doc held his first fundraiser and by August, he was living halfway around the globe in Sudan installing water systems for victims of government-supported genocide. His life, and the over one million lives he’s helped, would never be the same.
After spending one year in Darfur, Doc returned home. The haunting memories of what he had witnessed drove him to continue building the organization he started with that first fundraiser in a bar. Doc was determined to provide clean water for the world.
In 2007, after working two jobs and volunteering his time for three years, Doc launched Wine To Water. His dream of fighting the world’s water crisis became a reality. But that was just the beginning. Today, Wine to Water has given clean water to over 1,000,000 people.
About the event: The need for access to clean water, basic sanitation, and hygiene resources continues. So we’re building filters! Each participant will build a filter that provides clean water to ten people for ten years. The filter is then mailed to the areas that need clean water the most. We mail the entire experience to your home, office, or venue of choice. Join our live event to hear from the founder of Wine To Water on the story of the organization, and why the filters are so important.
The Wine To Water filter build offers a meaningful, hands-on experience that will impact communities around the world with clean water. Build relationships, purpose, and passion as you connect and give back.
