Team Ashley: SUCCESS!!!….and some Hyena Cart info

I struggle on how to begin this post…words just don’t come. We can excitedly confirm that an exponential amount of money has been donated. Even more than we could have ever imagined or hoped. Wow. Hopefully this will help the Hackshaws breathe a little easier in the months to come. This auction was definitely one for the record books!! You all are amazing!!!


Just a few things to address:

1. Hyena Cart seems to be having some issues. Shipping should NOT be paid by the winner, unless you are international, then you will pay the shipping difference. If you are receiving a shipping charge on your invoice, please hold off on paying it until tomorrow. We are working to fix that tonight. If you have already paid the shipping costs, please feel free to email Lisa at and she will refund the cost for you. So sorry about that- a little glitch in the system.

2. If you purchased anything that requires international shipping, you will receive an invoice from the donor with the difference. A prompt payment would be appreciated.

3. If you are a winner of an item, you should receive an invoice from Hyena Cart sometime tonight. Once you receive the invoice, please follow the prompts and pay within 24 hrs. If you do not receive an invoice, please log into Hyena Cart and click on your shopping cart. Your item should be there as well as directions on how to pay from there.

4. PLEASE REMEMBER: your item will be shipped to the address on your paypal account.

5. If you won a custom item, the donor will be in contact with you soon. Please give us a couple days at least to sort out donors/winners and make sure all the donors know who their winners are. Thanks for your patience there.

6. DON’T FORGET THE DONATE BUTTON!!! If you weren’t able to get what you wanted, would you consider donating the cash you were going to spend through the donate button? All the money goes directly to Ashley’s donation account, she gets 100% of it. Thank you in advance for that! Every little bit helps!

Again, thank you all so much. If you have any questions, please email me {}. Team Ashley is working very hard to respond quickly.

Big hugs to you all. xoxo

    I absolutely loved every single thing about the auction. Way to go, Amy– and all of “Team Ashley!” Seriously, I’m blown away each and every day at just how much of a “community” the online blog-o-sphere actually is. Thank you for allowing us all the opportunity to be a part of it either through donating or via bidding.

    The auction was fantastic! All the artists who donated are wonderful! I was happy to win 2 of the many auctions I bid on. Great job ladies of pulling this all together. I paid last night, I do not want a refunds for shipping because it all goes to Ashley :)

    Can they just keep the shipping charges if we’ve paid them (they were nominal so why not just make that part of the donation?)

    [...] last night the auction ended that Team Ashley put together….to help pay what seems to be never-ending medical expenses. My family and I are still [...]

    I love a good auction even better if it is for a good cause!!! I’m so excited that I won an auction item (which I’ve already paid for) but I just noticed that in my Hyena cart purchases it says I owe payment on a second item, but it is pretty clear that I wasn’t the highest/winning bidder. It is order #1239 and I’m going to leave it alone, but I did want to give someone a heads up.
    Thanks for all the hard work you guys have done!
