One in Eight couples are diagnosed with infertility.

Project 1:8 was started as an effort to help not just spread awareness about infertility, but also to help out those couples or individuals who are struggling financially as they go through treatments, procedures, or surgeries all with the hope of building their family.

Most insurance companies, unfortunately, do not cover the costs of these treatments, which can lead to very high medical bills. We, at Nine 16 Designs, know this, as we (Shannon and Matt)  are personally affected by infertility. 

Every couple of weeks, we pick a couple or individual who is currently going through this emotional journey and share their story on our website, and our social media outlets. A portion of our sales for a 2 week period will be donated to that couple with the hope that we can help take some weight off their shoulders by paying down some of the medical bills, or covering the cost of medications etc. 

If you or somebody you know would like to have a chance to work with us, we would love to hear from you! Click the link below to share your story with us, or feel free to nominate anybody who you think could benefit. 


 If you don't see anything you like, and would just like to donate, we have created a donation link (just click the button below!)  

To read more about our recently chosen couple, I've added it below the donate button. 

We are so grateful for all of you!! <3


At this time, we are taking a break from Project 1:8 so that we can catch up on some of our own medical bills. For those of you who don't know, my husband and I have struggled with infertility for 4 years, and have had several procedures, tests, etc. We are still working to build our family, but need to make sure we remain fiscally responsible as well. :o)
