The Junior League of Columbia’s Little Black Dress Initiative Begins Today!

Check out what my friends and community leaders are doing this week!

As most readers of this blog know, IMO, The Junior League of Columbia is the most impactful philanthropic group in the Midlands and they’re stepping it up a notch, again, with the Little Black Dress Initiative.

Read the language below that I swiped from their website regarding what #AskMeAboutMyDress is all about and click the links to get involved.

Thank you for all you do, Junior League of Columbia!

What is the Little Black Dress Initiative?
The Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a poverty awareness and fundraising campaign that underscores the Junior League of Columbia’s mission to end the cycle of poverty in the Midlands.

Take part in the campaign by making a donation today!


Each participant wears one black dress for five days to illustrate the effects poverty can have on a woman’s access to resources, confidence and opportunities. Or, if a black dress doesn’t fit the participant’s lifestyle, she may wear some variation of a black ensemble throughout the initiative (e.g. black scrubs, black skort with black top, etc.).

Participants will receive a LBDI button to wear each of the five days and will spread the word about the campaign through social media using #JLCLBDI #AskMeAboutMyDress
