LBD Monday: The first installment

And what a first it’s been! On March 1st, all of you U.P supporters around the globe donned your own LBDs and blew us away with your commitment and creativity. What started as a little creative experiment has turned into something we had never dreamed of. You’ve proven that a simple idea can grow into a movement, mobilizing people around the world. For that we can’t thank you enough. And we are so very excited about all that is in store for the big bright future!
Below are all the posts from our first LBD Monday. There is a lot to soak up, so sit back, scroll and enjoy!

Hey! Huge fan -- I check every day! (although I never comment). I totally dressed up for LBD day, though I didn't put up a picture (internet safety and all). This was a great idea, and I love what everyone came up with. Keep up the good work!

Oh my goodness! Did you ever guess when you sat down together to come up with the UP project that you would take a very small pebble and throw it into such a large pool! Hats off to Eliza and Sheena.

It is so exciting to see what a global impact the Uniform Project is having! People from all over the world are posting pics of their LBDs - how cool is that? And kudos to the awesome Noa Ryan for her involvement and her church for giving her the $500!! She is starting down a wonderful path ~ how inspiring! The creativity of everyone in their own LBDs is great to see! :-D

All this love and creativity is so overwhelming, and for that I say, 'Good on ya UP team!'. Noa, you're really something else aren't you? You should be just as proud of yourself as the rest of us are! That cheque just blew your LDB out of this world! And for the rest of the amazing guys & girls - wow! How good did that make you feel? Now let's remember why we did it, and pull a Noa for the kids ;)
