The Fifth-Annual Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a fundraising campaign spearheaded by the Junior League of Lynchburg (JLL). Through this event, we aim to change the cycle and bring awareness to women in poverty and period poverty. Our goal is to raise at least $8,000 in support of the YWCA, Johnsons Health Center, and the JLL. Participants will raise funds while wearing one black dress (or black attire) every day throughout the week of October 19-23; our hope is that this black dress prompts conversation and awareness.
Donations may be made through GoFundMe, to a JLL member or mailed to PO Box 2751, Lynchburg VA 24505. If mailed to JLL directly, please place participant’s name on check if applicable.
