Becoming a mama was not something that came easy for me, and if you are reading this, that might just be the same for you. I struggled with infertility for almost 6 years, and went through 2 rounds of IVF before getting pregnant with my twins. It was the most painful, stressful and exhausting process I've ever been through, but I would do it all again for the chance to be called Mama.
After we got pregnant, I decided that I wanted to do something more with this little shop, and put together a fundraiser for some couples that were struggling with infertility. I worked closely with them for a few weeks, shared my story, shared their story, and shared the products from the shop. At the end of a couple weeks, I donated a portion of all the sales that had come in. After that, I realized that this was something I wanted to do all the time.
I had SO much support from the TTC community while I was struggling, and now that I got through it, I wanted to give back to those still going through it.
Each couple or individual that is chosen will work with me for 2 weeks, sharing our stuff on their social media accounts, sharing with friends and family, and doing as much as you can to get the word out about Nine 16. We take direct donations as well, for those that can't find anything in the shop that they like (which is hard, because we have something for everyone!) I share your story across all of our social media accounts, and do the best I can to get the word out about you.
At the end of the two weeks, a portion of our sales and any donations are given to the chosen partner for that campaign. We have raised over $10,000 for couples in the last couple of years, and I want that number to be way more this year!
