Thank you to all who have submitted photos! Our judges are currently looking through ALL the submissions and will be announcing a winner on Dec. 11, 2017.

Join us on a fundraising campaign to benefit Upbring, a nonprofit organization striving to break the cycle of child abuse in Texas.

We feel grateful to live in Austin, Texas, and we think it’s a truly wonderful place to raise a family. Not all children, however, are quite as fortunate as our own, and we want to take the opportunity to lend a hand. We want to focus on thanks and giving in our awesome hometown this season, and you can help!

Take a photo of something in Austin that your family is thankful for, and for every photo you send in, our friends at Howdy Honda will donate $5 to Upbring (up to $5,000). And what’s even more exciting, United Heritage Charity Foundation will MATCH the total donation! That’s $10 raised per photo!

You say THANKS and the Austin community WINS with good feelings all around!

–> How to Enter the Keep Austin Thankful Photo Contest:
Take a photo of something you appreciate about Austin and email it to, or post to Instagram using the hashtags #KeepAustinThankful #Do512Family & #HowdyHonda. Be sure to follow @do512family and @howdyhonda with your privacy settings set to public so we can see it. The deadline for submitting photos is Friday, Dec. 1, 2017. 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)

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.

–> Prize:
The BEST prize of all is that for every photo submitted, a donation will be made to Upbring, a Texas-based nonprofit organization that is dedicated to creating a world where all children are cherished. For abused children, they not only help remove them from harmful situations and provide clothing, food and shelter, but they also provide support services for safety, life skills, education, health and vocation.
