Women in Anderson participate in “Little Black Dress Initiative”

News

ANDERSON, SC (WSPA) – Nearly forty women across Anderson County are wearing the same black dress for five days in a row this week.

It’s called the “Little Black Dress Initiative” and it’s an idea that started in London. The women are highlighting a different matter each day from domestic violence to education to financial inequality.

“There are people across the world experiencing poverty it’s everywhere, but I’m a firm believer that there is no better place to start changing the world than your backyard,” said Brooke Cole who is part of Junior League of Anderson County.

Last year was the first time that the Junior League of Anderson County held the little black dress initiative with a goal of $5,000 and ended the week with $13,000.

This year they are fundraising for four different nonprofits in the area including AIM, Foothills Alliance, Safe Harbor and Anderson Pregnancy Care.
