Ladies’ night has been reimagined. On Friday, April 15, women got together for a “ladies’ night” at Lifespring Community Church in Plainfield. There were finger foods, (lots and lots of delicious finger food), refreshments, and bouts of laughter. On the surface it looked like any other ladies’ night. It was the purpose behind the gathering that made the evening so significant. Dana Eisenach, the hostess, recognized a trend and connected it to a higher cause.
“The whole adult coloring thing is huge right now”, Dana said. Dana works as an Independant Scentsy Consultant, a company that specializes in wax warmers. “Adult coloring books, paint nights—these things are everywhere.”
When Scentsy released a new wax warmer that can be colored with permanent markers, Dana knew she had to get some.
“It’s something nobody’s ever seen before—coloring a wax warmer. I saw this warmer come out and the name was Reimagine…just perfect for what New Life for Haiti is doing right now. Reimagining education,” she stated.
New Life for Haiti has embarked on a project to reimagine Haitian education. A new school is being built that will serve as an example for other schools in the Grande-Anse River Valley. It will feature new teaching methodologies, host training for teachers, and will change how children approach their education.
Dana explains, “We’re doing something these Haitian people have never seen before. We’re changing education for them.”
Dana felt compelled to tie her career to her work with New Life for Haiti. Bedsides selling Scentsy products, Dana volunteers on the New Life for Haiti Creative Expansion Team, whose goal is to expand the reach of the organization. In her moment of inspiration, the event was born. While some of the ladies’ night discussion was about New Life for Haiti, the event was also about getting to know one another. Women conversed and were able to relax in the “warming” environment.
