DTLR partnered with a local DC Community Activist for Women, to create a “Spa Day” for about 30 women who simply needed a spirit boost.
Before the Mother’s Day holiday approaches, a group of local hair stylists, estheticians, nail techs and volunteers decided to visit a group of women at a local facility to beautify their Sunday.
In a small room, in a small facility in SE Washington DC, stations were set up where women could choose to receive free manicures, hair touch ups, waxing, facials and make up. Of course most of the women opted to have all the services…and who would blame them!
As they entered the room they were assigned a number and time slot and were sent on their Spa Day experience. There were raffles to local shows every half hour, a spa themed food spread and each guests received a gift bag at the end of their visit filled with things all women love such as make up and smell goods!
The room of women shared stories about motherhood, sisterhood, trials and tribulations, and simply got to know one another and build new bonds. The smiles and laughter filled this small space and the women were so appreciative that we took time out of our day to spend it making them feel special and loved by their fellow sisters!
“We’re connected, as women. It’s like a spiderweb. If one part of that web vibrates, if there’s trouble, we all know it, but most of the time we’re just too scared, or selfish, or insecure to help. But if we don’t help each other, who will?”
