Clean Water Healthy and Happy Life

About This Campaign

Whew! It’s hot; I think I’ll get a refreshing drink of water to rehydrate my body and soul. Now imagine for a moment the water you’re able to get does not do that but makes you sick and causes your stomach to hurt instead.
This is exactly what happens in different areas of the world. I personally saw the need for clean and parasite free water in just one of those areas, the Dominican Republic. This May I was able to take a cruise where I had an opportunity to contribute hands on with the Wine to Water’s operation. It was there that I was able to work side by side with the locals to create and deliver a water filter which provides a family with healthy clean water for up to 5 yrs.
In the Dominican Republic, forty percent of the population lives at or below the poverty line. Families have to spend a significant portion of their income to purchase bottled water. With the filter they can now use that money on other necessities for their families. I was so touched with the appreciation of the families who received this life changing filter that I knew I wanted to do more. I invite you to review the above clip and join me in donating to this worthwhile cause, and life changing operation. Any amount large or small will help.
As Wine to Water founder Doc Hendley once said
“My efforts are going to be, a drop in the bucket, but if I would have never taken that step
because it was too big of a problem, then we wouldn’t be anywhere right now.”

Campaign to Support Wine To Water

We're a small team based in Boone, NC, who believes ordinary people, in community, can make an extraordinary difference in the world.  This movement began in 2004 when our founder, Doc Hendley, while bartending in Raleigh, NC, learned about the world’s water crisis.  Once captured by the cause, Doc felt the need to do something about it.  So, he did. He did what he knew best…pour some wine, beer, and spirits, play some music, and have a great time with friends. When it was all said and done, a few thousand dollars was raised due to the generosity of the community.  With some money in hand, Doc soon found himself in Darfur, in the midst of a war, working to provide clean water to those who were in desperate need in desperate times.  Thus, Wine To Water was born.
