Olga’s Day Spa, in Highland Park, IL, took on helping those affected by sexual assault and abuse with a free day of spa treatment, held April 29, in time to coincide with Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
Created by Olga Nisenboim as her project in Landmark Education’s Self-Expression and Leadership Program, ‘Olga’s Beautiful Beings’ provided a full day of beauty and wellness to more than a dozen clients from the Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center (a rape crisis and advocacy center).
In addition to spa services provided by Olga’s Day Spa, hair services were provided by Salon Vole, breakfast and lunch were provided by local eateries, and each person went home with a goody bag of skin care products and a plush teddy bear.
Nisenboim, who has been a strong supporter of the Zacharias Center, said she took on the project because she really wanted each woman to feel like a beautiful human being: “Their stories are inspirational…we hope small act of kindness will make them feel good inside and out.”
