NEW YORK, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Tupperware Brands Corporation's Chairman and CEO, Rick Goings, and Chain of Confidence campaign spokeswoman, Brooke Shields, are encouraging women around the country to get a confidence boost at Tupperware's Camp Confidence. Camp Confidence is a new extension of Tupperware's Chain of Confidence campaign which launched last spring and celebrates female friendships and the intangible results of those relationships and supports Boys & Girls Clubs of America's SMART Girls program. Camp Confidence kicked-off today in an urban camp-themed setting at the famed Time Warner Center in New York City.
Last spring, Tupperware conducted a survey to determine the most significant source of women's confidence. Recently, Tupperware took the findings from the original survey a step further and commissioned a national opinion poll to learn more about what makes women feel confident. The new survey, conducted by Kelton Research, showed that an unprecedented 98% of women feel more confident about themselves if they have a healthy relationship with friends and family members.
Health and wellness, finances, relationships and beauty topped the list of topics which women said they discussed the most. Camp Confidence focuses on boosting confidence in these four key life areas through a panel of renowned experts, also known as "Confidence Counselors," who provide tips and advice for women in their respective areas of expertise. Counselors include: health & wellness guru Bethenny Frankel, financial expert, Laura Rowley, relationship coach, Logan Levkoff and beauty specialist, Carie Brescia.
"The response to Chain of Confidence has been overwhelming and now Camp Confidence will take the movement to the next level," said Rick Goings, Chairman and CEO of Tupperware Brands Corporation and National Chairman of Boys & Girls Clubs of America. "We are thrilled to have such a talented and passionate group of experts working with us to make Camp Confidence a meaningful outlet in women's lives. Tupperware Brands' commitment to women is not new -- we've been offering opportunities for over 60 years. Today we are committed to our global mission to enlighten, educate and empower women and Camp Confidence will help be instrumental in helping us reaching our goal."
Camp Confidence is available for women everywhere on www.ChainOfConfidence.com. The website has undergone an exciting makeover of its own in 2008. In addition to linking up and swapping confidence tips and stories with other women, visitors can now sign-up to receive email newsletters and SMS tips from the Confidence Counselors, contribute to Boys & Girls Clubs of America's SMART Girls program and participate in interactive voice-blogs through the website's updated technology.
"I'm so proud to be part of a campaign and community that celebrates women," said campaign spokeswoman, Brooke Shields. "The tips and advice offered through Camp Confidence are incredibly useful and women around the country can visit ChainofConfidence.com for their own confidence boost."
