Little Black Dress | March 9-13

 

Little Black Dress Initiative (#LBDI) is a week-long awareness and fundraising campaign that harnesses the power of social media and doing something “a little different” in order to educate people about local issues that Leagues work on in their communities.

In Boca Raton, our LBDI will underscore underserved women and children in our community.  Did you know that:

  • Palm Beach County’s prevalence of food insecurity is 14.1%
  • 1 out of 5 children living in PBC are in poverty
  • Federal assistance programs do not provide any assistance for diaper needs

Junior League of Boca Raton LBDI Advocates wear the same black dress (or outfit) for five consecutive days to illustrate the restrictions poverty places on choices, opportunities, and access to resources. By wearing a button that reads “Ask Me About My Dress,” they invite dialogue among colleagues, friends, and strangers to raise awareness about women and children who are underserved in our community.

Our League will participate in the LBDI March 9 – 13, 2020. Support our LBDI Advocates wearing the dress by donating to their 2019/2020 LBDI Fundraising Page available on their social media pages or donate to the JLBR LBDI Fundraising Page below.
