Cool event going on this Saturday that I wanted to share with everyone.  I will be volunteering at this event, and it's a part of the East Austin Studio Tour.

Austin, TX - November 8, 2017- Do512 Family and Howdy Honda are pleased to announce the Keep Austin Thankful Photo Contest, a fundraising campaign to benefit Upbring, a nonprofit organization striving to break the cycle of child abuse in Texas.

With a focus on thanks and giving this fall, Howdy Honda and Do512 Family are inviting Austinites to take a photo of something that they are thankful for. For every photo sent in, Howdy Honda will donate $5 to Upbring (up to $5,000). Additionally, United Heritage Charity Foundation will match the total donation.

Now through Friday, Dec. 1, 2017 participants can send their photo (maximum of 2 photos per household) to, or post to Instagram using the hashtags #KeepAustinThankful #Do512Family & #HowdyHonda, also tagging @do512family and @howdyhonda. Each photo submitted should include the following:

1.     First & last name of adult submitting the photo
2.     Name of photographer (if a child, please include age)
3.     Email & phone number

In addition to the fundraising component, entries are eligible to win a grand prize of four tickets to Ballet Austin’s The Nutcracker, a $200 gift certificate to Eberly and $50 ride credit for transportation on this Family Night Out. Do512 Family & Howdy Honda staff will judge the photographs, and a winner will be chosen on December 7, 2017.

Today at Fulmore 4-H Photography, we went on a walking tour heading south from the school and then crossing through the neighborhood to South First Street.  There, we visited our friends at Rivers & Reefs Pets & Supplies and they were kind enough to allow us to take some great photos of the animals inside the store:
