Community Spirit Award

The direct selling industry and its members are recognized for their big hearts and community spirit. Many individuals touch the lives of others both within Canada and across our borders on a global scope. We would like to honour those who are shining examples of these unique traits which contribute so very much to our industry. The Direct Sellers Association Community Spirit award honours an independent sales consultant whose charitable and/or community service efforts have made a profound difference in the lives of others.
