Hendley's book describes his experience of conceptualizing and founding Wine to Water, a non-profit organization that provides clean water to people around the world. As described on his website, Hendley "dreamed up the concept of the organization while bartending and playing music in nightclubs around Raleigh, North Carolina. In January of 2004 the first fundraiser was held and by August of that same year Doc was living in Darfur, Sudan installing water systems for victims of the government supported genocide." Hendley's story touches on many topics, from sustainability, to global health and politics, to grass-roots service.
