Michiana wine and be wine

Holly White, left, and Ami Jewell founded the Facebook group Michiana wine and be wined about two months ago. It now has 1,500 members who leave gifts on each other’s doorsteps.

ELKHART — Ami Jewell and Holly White say what they are doing is like an adult version of ding dong ditch. The lifelong friends’ newly created Facebook group, Michiana wine and be wined, lets local women drop off wine, treats and other gifts at the doors of friends they never met.

And two months after they created the group, it now has nearly 1,500 members who all promise to give more than they receive. It’s about paying it forward and letting local women empower and uplift each other.
