4-year-old Austin Perine uses his allowance to feed the homeless.
“I’ve been giving them food and showing love,” he explained. “Food and drinks and Gatorade and hamburgers and sandwiches.”
He got the idea of helping those less fortunate from a show on “Animal Planet”:
“I was watching Animal Planet and I didn’t want the mama panda bear to leave the cubs so they could be homeless. I wanted to give people food.”
In addition to helping however he can with hunger prevention, Austin is also a youth wrestling champion.
“I’m so proud of Austin. To have a kid at such a young age to want to show people how to love is a special thing,” his father Terance explained. “I never imagined it. If a 4-year-old can show this kind of love to people that are so much different, that look so much different than us, then so can we as adults.”
Austin thinks the rest of the world can help in this endeavor and started a PayPal to feed the homeless in other cities. He hopes that other people will show kindness and compassion to the homeless community like he has and encourages everyone “don’t forget to show love!”
