Please login to your account and go to the Member section and fill out the β€œFairy Drop Off log” for EACH member you have wined! (One form per Member, so if you spread cheer to 6 different members, you need to fill out the form 6 times)

Q: What does it mean to “earn fairy wings” and how can I do that?
πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™€οΈA: Simply put, “earning your fairy wings” is when you go out and gift someone. Typically in the form of a bottle of wine and hand written note of encouragement! Once you have registered on our website, you can use our address list to search for other members in your area and select one (or many) to drop off a gift to! It is as easy as that to “earn your wings”!!

Q: Do I have to wait to be wined to be a Fairy?
🧚A: No, you do NOT need to receive before you can be a Fairy! The purpose of the group is to go out and spread happiness and joy to as many people as we can during such an uncertain time. Being able to brighten someones day through a small act of kindness is what we are all about. Receiving a bottle of wine is the added incentive although may not be guaranteed!

Q: Am I assigned a specific person to β€œwine”?
πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™€οΈA: No! You can select anyone in the group that you wish! You can choose from the same area of where you are located or you can choose to travel a bit further out! It is entirely up to you on who you choose and where you fly your fairy wings! You can be anonymous or share that you’re out and about sprinkling your fairy dust.
