Digging for Hope: Turning Wine to Water and Other Modern Day Miracles

Doc Hendley is the founder and president of Wine To Water. In 2003, he dreamed up the concept of the organization while bartending and playing music in nightclubs around Raleigh, North Carolina. In January 2004, the first fundraiser took place and by August of that same year, Hendley was living in Darfur, Sudan, installing water systems for victims of the government-supported genocide. When Hendley returned home in August 2005, the haunting memories of what he had seen in Darfur drove him to continue building the organization he started two years before. Every 15 seconds a child dies from unclean water. Hendley’s dream—and now the goal of Wine To Water—is to quench the thirst of the needy in a way that sets them apart from the rest of the world. During his session, Hendley will teach us to do what we can with what we have. He will illustrate the immense power of relationships to transcend perceived barriers and prove one person can transform the impossible into the inevitable.
