keepaustinthankful_2016-07Join us on a fundraising campaign to benefit Mobile Loaves and Fishes Community First! Village, a housing community for the homeless.

We feel very fortunate to live in Austin, Texas, and we think it’s a truly wonderful place to raise a family. We want to focus on thanks and giving in our awesome hometown, and we’re asking you to help! Take a photo of something in Austin that your family is thankful for, and for every photo you send in, our friends at Hat Creek Burger Company will donate $5 to Community First! Village. You say THANKS, Hat Creek GIVES, and the Austin community WINS with good feelings all around!

keepaustinthankful-2016_middle-listingHow to Enter the Keep Austin Thankful Photo Contest:

Take a photo of something you appreciate about Austin and email it to, or post to Twitter and/or Instagram using the hashtag #KeepAustinThankful. (Be sure to tag @do512family and/or @hatcreekburgercompany with your privacy settings set to public so we see it.) The deadline for submitting photos is Friday, Dec. 2, 2016. With each photo, please 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 (we will only use this to contact you if you should win)
  4. Location of your nearest Hat Creek Burger Company (Please specify: Westlake, Burnet Rd., Round Rock, or Georgetown)

You can submit a maximum of 2 photos per family. After submitting your photo, Do512 Family will have permission to use these images on our website or social media channels in the future.


The BEST prize of all is that for every photo submitted, $5 will be donated to Mobile Loaves & Fishes Community First! Village. This is a 27-acre master planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for the disabled, chronically homeless in Central Texas. Your participation in this contest will help these individuals have a place to call home. THANK YOU!


Let’s support Austin’s homeless community together.
