Tupperware CEO, Rick Goings living ‘Beyond the Dream’
Tupperware Brands Asia Pacific Region and “Tupperware Brands Cares” Program respond with relief supplies and donations as recovery efforts continue in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan
Tupperware Brands Corporation (NYSE:TUP) today announced donations totaling nearly one million dollars to help the company’s sales force members and residents of the Philippines in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan. The donations will include water-tight products to store personal belongings, food and supplies. In addition, Tupperware Brands will make a monetary donation to the American Red Cross for their efforts to aid the people hardest hit by the storm.
With over one million people displaced and many still in need of food and basic necessities, Typhoon Haiyan has led to a serious humanitarian crisis across the Philippine Islands. Tupperware Brands, which has sales force members living and working in the Philippines, is taking action.
“Whenever something like this happens in the world, we see the true DNA of our global company. The relief response by our people happens naturally,” said Tupperware Brands Chairman and CEO Rick Goings. “Our thoughts continue to be with those affected by Typhoon Haiyan. We lend support to the communities in which we operate during this time of tragedy and tremendous need.”
Relief donations from Tupperware Brands will include:
- Immediate distribution of 20,000 Eco Water Bottles to the community at-large
- 10,000 family packs containing products to help store food, water, clothes and valuables for sales force members and impacted families
- Food and water to the Philippines sales force
Tupperware Brands is also encouraging sales force members and customers worldwide to join with them and make a donation to the American Red Cross through Tupperware’s Chain of Caring Program to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. Tupperware will match every dollar donated, up to $30,000.To make donation, click here.
Typhoon Haiyan is reported to be the deadliest natural disaster to hit the Philippines. It transformed neighborhoods into twisted piles of debris, destroyed roads, airports and bridges and the death toll currently exceeds 10,000. An estimated 660,000 people have been displaced with at least 9.5 million affected in 41 provinces.
Tupperware Brands Corporation is working closely with their staff in the Philippines and NGO partners to make sure response is appropriate and timely for the needs in the community and should have a disaster relief plan soon.
The tornadoes that hit Oklahoma—first in Shawnee, then Moore— on May 20, 2013 were devastating to the people who live there. Some lost loved ones, suffered injuries and lost everything they own. Many families have been affected by this horrific storm and Red Cross Spiritual Care Teams are working with partners to comfort those affected.
Tupperware Brands Corporation is partnering with the American Red Cross to assist with the relief efforts following the devastation of the Oklahoma tornadoes. Tupperware Brands has established this giving site so that you can make a contribution to help with the recovery efforts in the affected communities.

In partnership with World Wide Fund (WWF) Indonesia, Tupperware Indonesia supported their “MyBabyTree” program and donated 5,000 Baby Mangrove for two areas simultaneously, Muara Gembong-Bekasi (Jakarta) and Lamnga Village (Aceh) on March.
The act of planting the mangrove trees is part of an effort to save the environment. These trees planted will bring these areas back to their natural function as the preserved forest and to rectify the quality of environment around the area. This act is also a part of celebrating the World Water Day.
The purpose of the event is to open the public’s eye on the importance of clean water and to encourage them to reduce littering and help reduce sea and beach pollution. “We feel obligated to contribute to the public and to the environment and keep encouraging people to commit to adopting green living into their daily lives. By giving them understanding and educating them about the importance of green living for the earth and the environment,” stated Nining W. Pernama, Managing Director, Tupperware Indonesia.
