More than 50 million Americans face hunger every day; meanwhile, 40% of the food produced in the United States every year is wasted. Move For Hunger offers a sustainable solution to this inexcusable paradox—and we at GTN couldn’t be more excited to partner with them for our annual 2021 Beards & Braids for Busy Season campaign.
Looking for something specific?
Our annual Beards and Braids for Busy Season begins now! In the campaign’s eighth year, GTN is partnering with Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way to reduce food waste and fight hunger. Our 2021 Beards and Braids for Busy Season (BBFBS) campaign is striving to make an impact on the growing hunger crises that is affecting so many people due to COVID and its impact on global economies. We are very excited about the role we can play in helping the Move For Hunger cause.
In December, the Washington Post asked its readers to sum up calendar year 2020 in one word or phrase. They received over 2,000 responses with exhausting, lost, and chaotic rounding out the top three. And though it was all three of these words and more, 2020 was also a year when many of us took time to reexamine what is most important, where we want to spend our time, and how much we can accomplish when we all come together and give back.
Despite COVID-19, remote working, and many adjustments we have all had to make in 2020, we are excited to announce that GTN is collecting toys for Toys for Tots again this year! 2020 has been difficult for many families due to COVID-19 so it is more important than ever to help spread happiness this holiday season. Help us support the Toys for Tots mission of helping to bring the joy of Christmas and to send a message of hope to America's less fortunate children.
With the challenges we are currently facing around the globe, organizations like AdoptAClassroom.org are essential in keeping education available for students, parents, and teachers. We are proud to be partnering with them for our seventh annual Beards and Braids for Busy Season campaign—raising awareness and funds to provide COVID-19 relief for educators and their students.
