Swapping living rooms for WhatsApp
Tina Weber is a self-employed Tupperware consultant. She hosted a four-day-long virtual sales show and donated her entire commission to Mix for Kids. Weber raised a total of 220 euros through her sale of a wide range of Tupperware kitchenware and homeware.
Traditionally, the 33-year-old has sold Tupperware lunch boxes, drinking cups and the like in other people’s living rooms, where friends, work colleagues and neighbors meet up for popular Tupper parties. Of course, since Covid-19 hit, this has not been an option and that’s why Tina Weber has now turned to WhatsApp. She uses group chats to present the products and answer questions. Over the holiday season, she decided to turn her work into a fundraising event in order to help disadvantaged children at Christmas.
