Congrats winners! (Payment info)

Congrats to the winners of the awesome items of the auction. Your generosity has been overwhelming and touches my heart. Thanks so much for making this auction a success.

Here's how we're going to do it, to make it the best for all of us.

First, if you haven't yet - email me your contact info at I need an email so I can put you in touch with the person you won your item from. If it's a tangible item, I'll need your address to pass along. If it's a phone call, I'll need your number.

If you donated an item, please email me your Twitter and any websites (blogs, Etsy, etc) you want listed for people to find you and your items. :) 

Second, to make your donation go directly to
Click on the Relief efforts. Enter your amount. (If you won an item for less than $10 email me or if you just want to donate the minimum amount of ten dollars, go right ahead.)

Then either enter West's zip code in the top right space for "your area" (76691) or click In Honor Of. In the space that comes up enter West, Texas Plant Explosion Relief Effort. (I did both.)

It will then go to the billing page. Once you've paid, email a receipt of donation to me and I'll put you in touch with the person who donated the item/items you won.If you won more than one item, you can just make one donation and in your email of receipt give me the item numbers you won.

Also - print your receipt for next year's taxes!!

This is the best way for Texas to get all the funds we've raised without any fees, taxes etc.

***You have one week to make your payment and show receipt of donation. If at the end of the week, the second highest will notified and awarded as the winner of that item.***

THANKS SO MUCH TO ALL OUR WONDERFUL DONORS!!!! I'll be putting together a blog post with everyone's websites and Twitters and Etsy pages so you can find them if you didn't win but want some of their awesome things!(It'll be on my real blog.)

THANKS SO MUCH TO ALL THE BIDDERS! Collectively, we raised almost $4000 dollars. Wow. Just wow. I stand in awe of you and your kind hearts.

Thank you to everyone who contributed and tweeted the heck out of this to make it a success. That money will go along way to food and shelter to the residents of West, Texas affected by the blast.

With all my love and gratitude, Angi Black

P.S. If you want to just make a donation, let me know after you do so I can add it to total we raised for Relief!


  1. Wow. $4000. That is awesome!!

  2. Thank you for doing this! You are all kinds of awesome. :)

  3. Just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing. I'm not seeing a "Relief Efforts" link at the Red Cross page above. "Disaster Relief" goes to a general information page.

    There are plenty of general links to Donate, but I can't find a way to specify "76691" for an area. The "In Honor Of" is an option, but that seems to want to send an ecard to the recipient. I'm not sure if my donation will get to West, Texas, or simply into general funds.

    I just want to make sure my donation gets where I intend.

    2. The zip code is at the top right of the page. it make say local chapter or area chapter. And it will have a city and state listed. Put the zip in there and the funds will go to the right place. Thanks! And disaster relief are what half of them say, so that's the right place. Thanks!

    3. I did as you suggested, despite my best efforts, my donation was assigned to "Where the Need is Greatest." Right now, odds are good West is that. I'm sorry I couldn't figure out how to direct it to your chapter.
