Response to U.S. Spring Storms through Three-Prong Approach
The tragic storms, fires, tornadoes and floods that have ravaged parts of the United States and Canada over the past few months have left thousands of people without homes or basic necessities.  Residents of affected regions have suffered unimaginable physical and personal losses and are in desperate need of help to rebuild and restore.
 
Reaching Out to Japan
On March 11, one of the largest earthquakes in recorded history hit Japan. The massive tsunami that followed resulted in countless deaths and widespread destruction, and the nuclear incident compounded an already devastating situation. Within a short time, Tupperware Brands learned that all our distributors, managers, and NaturCare sales directors in Japan were safe. However, many sales force members currently remain among the significant number of people unaccounted for in the region. The entire Tupperware Family was called upon to demonstrate its support and generosity, just as we did when called upon to respond to disasters in China and Haiti.
 
Next Step for Business—Social Entrepreneurs
Everything has a history, including corporate giving. In the beginning, it was about philanthropy, simply writing a check to what a company deemed a worthy cause. Then, the giving of money became more focused; companies established charitable contribution guidelines to support specific causes such as education or hunger. Next, came the shift to social responsibility and companies began backing up check writing with volunteers for events and causes. Thinking then turned to the idea of social responsibility; what does it mean to be a good citizen and neighbor? Should we cut down on emissions? Recycle? Adopt a school? Respond to emergencies?
 
Living the Model of Women’s Economic Empowerment
Earlier this year, I attended the World’s Bank Private Sector Leaders Forum in Lima, Peru. I’ve attended similar conferences and I’m often asked what we I’ve learned. One thing was crystal clear to me after Lima. We’re at the ground level of the whole movement around women’s economic empowerment and why it matters--and we always have been. The difference is that now our business model is becoming much more recognized, relevant, and visible as a key development tool. It’s not just a business proposition for a corporation concerned about women, but actually part of the solution without it being a separate development initiative. 

 
2010-2011 Tupperware Brands Global Impact Award Recipients
On May 4, 2011, the 2010-2011 Global Impact Award recipients were announced before an enthusiastic audience filled with Tupperware Brands Associates. The contributions of all our markets and Associates have been particularly significant over the past 12 months. More than ever, we understand the meaning and importance of being a global neighbor. The markets that were recognized demonstrated noteworthy leadership in the breadth, quality, and creativity of their social and financial investments and their heartfelt, hands-on personal participation. We are all inspired to raise the bar in our social engagement and giving over the next 12 months.
 
Playground Paradise Built in Less Than a Day
At 9:00 a.m. on February 3, an empty field sat adjoining the Tupperware Brands Boys & Girls Club of Central Florida. Less than six hours later, that field was transformed into a safe, colorful, and fun playground that will be enjoyed by hundreds of community children and families.
 
Global Volunteer Day Activities
‘We may only be one person in the world. But we may be the world to one person.’
The idea of giving back to local and global communities is woven into the fabric of Tupperware Brands. Year round, Tupperware Brands associates and sales force members participate in effective community partnerships, lead service initiatives, and strengthen non-profit organizations. Still, it’s important to highlight and celebrate this commitment to service, which is why Global Volunteer Day was developed.
 
Global Volunteer Day Toolkit
Every year, in October or at a set date in the year, Associates and Sales Force Members around the globe convene and impact their local communities by partnering with a local non-profit (NGO) agency with a project that enlightens, educates and empowers women and girls. We hope the following information will provide you with the tools to participate in this years’ Global Volunteer Day.
