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.

2021 Recipient

Courtney Waterfall, Stylist, She’s Got Leggz.   Courtney is a passionate advocate for community services, education and foster care. In April 2021, with a rise in pandemic-related domestic abuse cases, she joined the Waterloo chapter of Shelter Movers, a national, volunteer-powered charitable organization providing moving and storage services at no cost to women and children fleeing abuse. She also actively volunteers as the President of the Foster Family Association in the Waterloo Region and is a member of various community service committees. On top of her already busy schedule, Courtney is also currently undertaking a Social Service Worker diploma and credits the flexibility of her She’s Got Leggz business as a way that she has been able to make some extra income while undertaking her dream career.
