Bartender helps turn wine to water in developing world
"You can be a bartender in Raleigh, North Carolina; you can be just a regular anybody. And you really, really can change the world. You can touch thousands of lives. I'm walking truth of that."
- Doc Hendley, humanitarian
Behind the bar at a local restaurant, Doc Hendley leans in to hear his customer over the band. "You like the pinot? Cool," he says.
That something is Wine to Water, Hendley's organization that provides clean water to people in developing countries through funds raised at wine tasting events ... Since 2004, Hendley has traveled to Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda and Cambodia, working with local communities to build clean water wells and sanitation systems.
