Based on a true story, 'President Austin' is a children's book about practicing kindness and showing love. It's a tale that teaches kids (and adults) how to be the super hero each and every one of us has the potential to be.
Austin Perine is a Superhero and Homeless advocate also known as 'President Austin'. His quest to help the homeless started when he put on his cape and used his toy money to buy food for those in need in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. His appearance on Steve Hartman's "On the Road" for CBS News raised the awareness of the homeless crisis in America and demonstrated how a child’s simple message of SHOWING LOVE can change the world. Austin has since traveled the country feeding the homeless and continues to spread his message of helping others and across multiple platforms ranging from the United States, France, Spain, and Africa. Austin is also one of the youngest people ever to receive the 'SPEAR' community award from the Vulcan Park Foundation in Birmingham (a very high honor), and was named one of the five most inspiring heroes from CNN's "Impact Your World" series. Austin continues to work hard to help the homeless and hopes one day to become President of the United States.
