WESTPORT, Conn. (March 22, 2011) — Save the Children has launched an online giving program in partnership with Tupperware Brands that will allow Tupperware Brands Associates, businesses that sell Tupperware around the world and customers to make a secure donation to Save the Children’s relief efforts in Japan. The country was struck by a devastating earthquake and tsunami on March 12.
Save the Children is in the process of setting up child-friendly spaces to help children and families cope with the disaster. These are protective play areas that help relieve the anxiety faced by children and allow them to spend time with other children and play while being supervised by responsible adults. The play areas also give parents much needed time to find food, work, and accommodation and locate friends and family.
“At a time when all of us are experiencing an overwhelming feeling of helplessness, we felt compelled to demonstrate our support and offer assistance,” said Tupperware Brands Corporation Chairman and CEO Rick Goings.
Tupperware Brands Corporation is a portfolio of global direct selling companies, selling premium innovative products across multiple brands and categories through an independent sales force of 2.6 million.
