If you are in the mood to read an inspiring book that proves it only takes one person to make a difference, then look no further. Wine To Water: How One Man Saved Himself While Trying To Save The World is  about how a 25 year old bartender, named Doc Hendley, was inspired to provide fresh drinking water to Sudan genocide victims.

It all began in Raleigh, NC in 2004. Doc hosted the first Wine To Water™ event, a wine tasting where proceeds supported  water projects around the world. Then with no experience at all, he risked his life to install  fresh water systems in Darfur, Sudan, where the government was wiping out entire villages and polluting water supplies by dumping their corpses into water sources.

After spending one year in Darfur, Sudan, Doc decided to continue growing his organization, which officially became a non-profit in 2007. Wine To Water™ helps provide clean drinking water to people around the world.
