Please join me and the Junior League of Douglas County (JLDC) for our signature awareness and fundraising campaign, Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI), taking place March 8-12, 2021.
Founded in 2014 by the Junior League of London, LBDI is a week-long awareness and fundraising campaign with the goal to "Make Poverty Unfashionable."
Harnessing the power of social media, JLDC aims to educate the public about issues addressing poverty, literacy and menstrual equity and its long-lasting effects.
HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT LBDI!
There are several ways to support JLDC LBDI:
1. Become a LBDI Advocate and wear a black dress (or outfit) in solidarity for five consecutive days.
2. Share a statistic! Post a poverty statistic that affects our community and share to your social media accounts. Also, repost LBDI promotions throughout the week to engage your social networks. Don't forget to tag the Junior League of Douglas County @jldouglascounty using #JLDCLBDI #AskMeAboutMyDress and #iSupportLBDI
3. Donate to the JLDC LBDI fundraiser
WHAT DO MY DONATIONS SUPPORT?
Since the 2015-2016 League year, the Junior League of Douglas County has been spreading awareness and sparking conversation. During the 2019-2020 league year, JLDC began assembling period packs for girls in local schools. During that same year, JLDC donated over 350 period packs! The donations received from this year's LBDI fundraiser will be used to purchase additional menstrual hygiene supplies to be distributed to girls in local public schools, homeless women and women in transitional housing, socks for homeless families and books for the League's numerous reading programs.
All donations are fully tax-deductible.
