Doc Hendley

Doc Hendley never set out to be a hero. In 2004, Hendley - a small-town bartender - launched a series of wine-tasting events to raise funds for cleanwater projects and to bring awareness to the world’s freshwater crisis.

There, Doc witnessed a government-sponsored genocide where the number-one weapon wasn’t bullets-it was water. With limited funds, Doc realized that he couldn’t build new wells costing $10,000 a pop, but he could hire local workers to restore a damaged well for a mere $50 each. He’d found his mission. Doc was named one of the Top 10 CNN Heroes of 2009 and has written a book about his experience, Wine to Water: A Bartender’s Quest to Bring Clean Water to the World.
