Doc Hendley never set out to be a hero. 

Hendley - a small-town bartender - launched a series of wine-tasting events to raise funds for clean-water projects and to bring awareness to the world's freshwater crisis. He planned to donate the proceeds through traditional channels, but instead found himself traveling to one of the world's most dangerous hot spots: Darfur, Sudan.
 
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. Today, Doc and Wine to Water continue to help stricken peoples repair and maintain water- containment systems in places like Darfur, Cambodia, Uganda, and Haiti.
 
Doc is a regular, rough-and-tumble guy who loves booze, music, and his Harley.  Doc realized he 'didn't have to be a perfect do-gooder to actually do some good in this world'. 
 
His book, 'Wine to Water: A Bartender's Quest to Bring Clean Water to the World', is a captivating story of an ordinary bartender who's changing the world through clean water.
