JUNIOR LEAGUE OF ANDERSON COUNTY KICKS OFF THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS INITIATIVE
Members will raise money & awareness about poverty in Anderson County
Anderson, SC (April 25, 2018)- The Junior League of Anderson County (JLAC) will kick off the Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) the week of May 14-18, 2018. Throughout the week, LBDI advocates will wear the same black dress (or attire) to raise awareness about poverty and illustrate the effects it can have on a woman's access to resources, choices, confidence, and opportunities. All money raised via donations to LBDI will be split among selected charitable organizations, whose purposes align with Junior League's mission to support women and children, and JLAC special projects that impact our community.
This social media driven fundraiser aims to raise money by "making poverty unfashionable," a phrase coined during the inaugural LBDI in 2014.
