{Choose Joy}

I am going to take some time to talk about a special and heart wrenching topic. I have followed this blog off and on for a while- Lil Blue Boo. She has an awesome clothing line, and recently has been dealing with a lot of tragedy. You can read Amy's post about what is going on with Ashley here at Evys Tree Blog.

They are in the process of having an Auction at the end of this month to help with some of the medical expenses for Ashley. Please share this info, share her story, share the blog, share about the Auction. Read Ashley's story, and Check out her blog


Now on to some frequently asked questions:
When is the auction?
February 27-29, 2012. It starts at 8pm PST/11 pm EST and the end times will be staggered through the evening on the 29th, the exact ending times will be noted within each listing. Please note that Hyenacart auctions end 2 minutes after the last bid.
Where will the auction be held?
On a special site hosted by Hyena Cart. It is under construction right now, the address will be shared as we get a little closer to the auction date. You will need a shopping account on in order to bid.
What kinds of items will be offered?
We have been privileged to get donations from some very large handmade and unique companies. I think you will be THRILLED with what we will have to offer. So far we have a wide variety of items…photographers offering fabulous packages for all over the country, many doll makers and clothiers, and a large amount of clothing vendors. We will be posting previews of items as we get closer to the date…but let me just tell you, SAVE YOUR MONEY. I promise, you are going to want to bid on this stuff.
Can I make something for the auction?
Donations were only being accepted from businesses…and currently we are not accepting any more donations.
I don’t like auctions, but I want to help… How?
No problem! There is a donate button directly to your right on my sidebar. This button is linked to Ashley’s donation account and she receives all the funds that are received through it. Anything you can give to Ashley would be AWESOME.
Unfortunately, the Team Ashley tee-shirts designed by Stephanie Corfee have sold out…THANK YOU to all who purchased one to support Ashley. Missed out on one? No worries, we’ll have other ways you can show your love and support for Ashley. And again, in the meantime…don’t forget the donation button!! :)
What happens if I win one of the auctions?
You will be required to pay within 24 hours of the auction ending. All payments will be made by paypal. Please make sure your Paypal shipping address is correct, that is the address we will ship to, no exceptions. We are unable to accept money orders or e-checks. If you are unable to complete the transaction, the item will go to the next highest bidder.
I am outside of the U.S., do you ship internationally?
Items can be shipped internationally unless the listing description states otherwise. Some items will be services, so don’t bid if you are not in that area. If you are outside of the U.S., the donor of the item will contact you after payment has been made to make arrangements to ship your item, you may be responsible for the shipping charges.
How much of the proceeds go to Ashley?
100%. Team Ashley has donated their time and is not taking any salary or compensation from this auction. This is currently the only auction endorsed by Ashley and Lil Blue Boo.
We hope this helps answer some of your questions! Please feel free to follow along, we will be posting more updates weekly. If you click on the Team Ashley Logo over on my sidebar, all the blog posts regarding the auction will be housed there.
Thank you friends! You are all amazing. We are blown away by the love and support you are showing our friend…a friend to all of us, yes?
Big hugs xoxo
