Junior League of Owensboro Little Black Dress Initiative 2022

Mon, Feb 21 through Fri, Feb 25


The 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.

LBDI Advocates wear the same black dress (or outfit) for five consecutive days to illustrate the restrictions that poverty and devastation place on choices, opportunities, and access to resources.

Members of the Junior league of Owensboro, along with other community members, wear our little black dresses to raise awareness about the experience of homelessness among women and children in Daviess County, KY.

Did You Know…

  • In 2020, more than 580,000 people experienced homelessness in one night across the United States. And on any given night, more than 216,000 of those experiencing homelessness were women.
  • In Kentucky, nearly 24,000 school-aged children are housing insecure.
  • Statewide, more than 29% of homeless families are headed by a working adult, usually a mother. Common issues causing homelessness include domestic violence, a major illness or accident with no medical insurance, extended unemployment, drug or alcohol addiction, and mental illness.

You Can Make a Difference

By donating to the Junior League of Owensboro’s LBDI campaign, you can help provide funding to build a new emergency shelter for women and children in Daviess County. My Sister’s Keeper was founded by Angel Welsh, a long-time beloved morning radio host on 92.5 WBKR. All funds raised from this campaign will go directly to My Sister’s Keeper and will be allocated for the construction of the facility’s bathrooms and showers.
