Little Black Dress

Can one little black dress, worn for five short days, create awareness about issues that affect others for a lifetime?

The Junior League of The Woodlands and I say YES! Our hope for this initiative is that we will create awareness around the issues of childhood poverty in our area. LBDI began in London in 2014 and has spread to the United States as a social media campaign to combat poverty.

Many of us take for granted our ability to wake up and choose what we would like to wear and eat daily. Not everyone, not every child, is afforded that luxury. One little black dress can illustrate how limited resources affect daily life.

LBDI is a social media-driven campaign and fundraiser striving to raise awareness about the challenges that face 13.1% of women and children in our area living in poverty.
