The Junior League of Jacksonville is excited to be a part of our Little Black Dress Initiative. LBDI is a social media driven, grassroots campaign that seeks to raise awareness of poverty in the Jacksonville community and what the JLJ is doing to make poverty unfashionable.
One in four children in Duval county is living in poverty and the poverty rate in our community is rising. The Junior League of Jacksonville has multiple programs to address the challenges these children face everyday. We teach kids to make healthy food choices, volunteering at a farm located in one of Jacksonville’s food deserts and lobbying our lawmakers, among many other efforts. We – over 1,000 women of the Junior League – work tirelessly to build a better Jacksonville.
During the week of February 6-10, we will be wearing the same black dress for five days to bring attention to the problem of poverty in our community. Support the Junior League of Jacksonville in making poverty unfashionable.
Your support is incredibly critical for us to meet our goal of raising $10,000 in just five days and make this campaign a success. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to support me, and the Little Black Dress Initiative.
