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 effort have made a profound difference in the lives of others.

2019 Recipient

Christine Ransom, Mary Kay.   If enthusiasm is contagious, then Mary Kay Independent Sales Director Christine Ransom could not only light up a room – but set it on fire. That’s because after 27 years of running a successful business, the Look Good Feel Better® volunteer and Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation fundraiser is still as passionate about Mary Kay’s legacy of making a difference in the lives of others as the day she started.
