Wine To Water: Now Thats My Kind Of Hero

If you know me, you know that the preservation of our natural fresh water resources is my passion and that I believe clean healthy water is a birth right for all living creatures on this planet. Today I came across a news story that touches my heart. Doc Hendley is a resident of Blowing Rock, NC with whom I share a passion, a dream and a hope. For me this story hits close to home in many ways; literally and figuratively.

Mr. Hendley is the creator of an organization called Wine to Water that provides clean water to people in developing countries through funds raised at wine tasting events. That’s right folks you can have your wine and save lives by doing so; brilliant! Wine to Water is a nonprofit dedicated to achieving sustainability through education and empowerment of local community members, training them to install, maintain and repair their own water systems. I will be reaching out to Mr. Hendley in support of his efforts and I hope you all will do the same.Check out this video from CNN News.
