Doc Hendley

Founder & President of Wine To Water

Bio

Bartenders aren’t automatically the people most think of as “CNN Heroes,” but that is exactly what Doc Hendley, the founder of Wine To Water, became after he followed his dream to save thousands of lives around the world by providing those in need with clean drinking water. Proving that ordinary people can change the world, Hendley recounts the experiences that led him to start his non-profit and inspires audiences to understand that one person can indeed make a difference.  +

Hendley began Wine To Water after living in Sudan, where he installed water systems for victims of the government-supported genocide. “When the idea came to me to start Wine To Water, the only real world job experience I had was tending bar,” says Hendley. “I dreamed of building an organization that fought water related death and disease using completely different methods than anyone else. So I started raising money to fight this water epidemic the best way I knew how, by pouring wine and playing music.”

Hendley now has projects in nine different countries around the world and has saved thousands of lives by providing humanity’s most basic need and right―clean drinking water. Balancing family life and the demands of building Wine to Water, Hendley continues to travel to underdeveloped, war-ridden nations, working in the field to bring clean water to those in need.  --

There is one thing that rings true every time I get the pleasure of hearing Doc Hendley speak—his passion comes through and hits you like nothing you’ve ever experienced in your lifetime. It's not just the way he interacts with the audience, a sort of down home person that you seem to already know even though you don't, but it's the message about improving who we are as people each and every day, and helping those who have difficulty helping themselves because of places they live in or the circumstances of their country. Doc brings that message of hope and seems to naturally lift every person out of their comfort chair and into the wilds of Africa or the devastation in Haiti right alongside him. You feel everything that he feels and see everything that he saw. We are just enamored to be part of his world in a small way and hoping to work with him to better our world in a meaningful way.

–United Water, North American Managers Conference

His story is amazing and inspirational, yet a tad frightening at the beginning (Darfur!) His use of imagery really brings his spoken story to life for his audience. What a humble and genuine man — for someone who has experienced and accomplished so much in the humanitarian field, his modesty is remarkable. In a room of hundreds of corporate executives and government and NGO officials, he easily captivated attention because his commitment to the cause is real, his passion is clear, and his speaker presence is engaging. It was a pleasure to get to talk to him more during the event reception, where Wine to Water wine was served.

–BCLC

Doc Hendley raised the roof at TEDxAsheville. In a forum focusing on world (and self) changing ideas, Doc’s inspiration was contagious. I heard time and again from individuals shifting their midsets about their own potentials because of Doc’s humility and passion. His definitive message that even the most "extraordinarily regular" among us has the power within themselves to make a difference; he offered a new brand of possibilities to many of the nearly 500 people at our conference. He is an asset to the world, and a role model for everyone.

–TEDxAsheville

Doc is a fantastic person in every way. His humility and dedication to making the world a better place is contagious for children and adults. His colorful and human stories of Africa and his work kept these youngsters captivated. I enthusiastically recommend him.
