MINNEAPOLIS, MN, March 15, 2017 -- Today Global Tax Network (GTN) announced the launch of the annual Beards for Busy Season (BFBS) Campaign to help raise awareness and monetary support for a nonprofit organization.To date, the GTN BFBS campaign has raised nearly $5,000 in cash donations to help support nonprofit organizations. A couple of the organizations that have been supported during the BFBS campaigns have been the KGSA Foundation and The Grameen Foundation.

For this year's campaign, GTN is partnering with Canines for Disabled Kids (https://caninesforkids.org/)--a nonprofit organization focused on increasing independence for children with disabilities and their families by promoting service dog partnerships, understanding, and awareness throughout the community.

"Canines for Disabled Kids is a small organization that relies on grassroots efforts from people in the community. It's great to have a company like GTN help support our cause," says Mallory Andersen, Special Event Coordinator with Canines for Disabled Kids. "Every penny raised makes a huge difference in our bottom line and allows us to continue increasing independence for children with disabilities and their families."

This year, GTN refreshed the campaign by adding braids to the mix. Beards (& Braids) for Busy Season encourages everyone to not only grow their best beard possible, but to also braid their hair in new and fun ways in support of our fundraising efforts. The more creative, the better."

"Adding Braids to our BFBS Campaign will put a new spin on what we are accomplishing during this initiative and will open participation to more people," says Eric Loff, Managing Director for GTN's West Central region. "It's something fun we do as a team for a great cause."

This year's campaign will run through April 18, 2017, which represents the Internal Revenue Service's tax filing deadline in the United States. All GTN employees, families, and friends of the firm are encouraged to participate in this event by growing their beard or braiding their hair.
