Austin Perine on 'Most Influential' list

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Birmingham’s own little super hero is getting national attention again.

Austin Perine is on CNN’s list of most influential people in 2018.

The five year old, works to raise awareness about homelessness in Birmingham, delivering food to those on the streets, and hugs with a message "don’t forget to show love.”

“Don't forget to show love and it means, you care about someone, no matter what they look like,” said Austin.

"He realized that these people were normal and, he was able to set an example not just for himself and I, but for the entire country, in fact the entire world,” said TJ Perine, Austin’s father.
