The Little Black Dress Initiative is a homelessness awareness campaign and fundraiser. During LBDI week, November 26 – 30, 2018, Junior League of Lansing members will wear one black dress (or outfit) for five consecutive days to illustrate the effects poverty can have on someone’s access to resources, confidence and opportunities. Donations made will be attributed to an individual JLL member for tracking and recognition (please note their name in Comments or Donation Information fields).
This year, JLL has partnered with the Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness.
In the last two League years, JLL has awarded more than $38,000 in Community Impact Grants to local non-profits. Some of these organizations include: Haven House, Refugee Development Center, Clinton-Gratiot Habitat for Humanity, Housing Services of Mid-Michigan, SIREN/Eaton Shelter and Child and Family Services. This year we hope to continue to raise funds to support these nonprofits that provide access to shelter in the Lansing area.
