Austin's interest in feeding the homeless began after watching Animal Planet, after a mother panda left her cubs and learning from his father that they would be homeless. Austin then discovered that there were homeless people. This launched a series of projects called "Show Love" in which Austin feeds the homeless on the streets and reminds them to show love to someone else.
Austin has gained recognition for humanitarian acts in the U.S. and Africa. Alabama Senator Doug Jones, NFL QB Jameis Winston, and several news sources around the U.S. has recognized Austin for his efforts. To donate to his cause please visit Paypal.me/AustinPerine
