Little Black Dress Initiative

LBDI Week: Sunday, October 15 – Saturday, October 21, 2023

Founded in 2014 by the Junior League of London, #TheLBDI is a social media-driven awareness campaign and fundraiser. Participants wear one black dress (black t-shirt) and a branded button for 5 consecutive working days to:

  1. RAISE AWARENESS of our League’s focus, Positively Impacting Teenagers, specifically highlighting the difficulties facing those who are in need and have few resources;
  2. UNDERSTAND how limited resources affect daily life; and
  3. OFFER AN OPPORTUNITY for our network to donate in support of the Junior League of Waterloo-Cedar Falls and our mission of training volunteer civic leaders and our development of community programs such as Wrapped in a Hug, League’s Lockers, Prom’s Closet, and so much more.

Show your support of the Little Black Dress Initiative with a donation!

Check out our Silent Auction which begins at 12:00am on Sunday, October 15 and Closes Saturday, October 21 at 12pm.
