Austin, and how giving to CAFB became my duty.

Guest blogger, Michael Castellon, on making Austin a utopia for everyone.
I first fell in love with Austin in 1991. For 16 years my passion for this town ate at me until I arrived again in 2007, this time to stay.
But from my utopia, I see a little girl leaving the theater, her tattered coat and torn shoes, clutching her grandmother’s frail hand on a winter night. I see an elderly man clutching canned goods at the checkout, nervously counting nickels and pennies.
I help in what little ways I can to make this city just a little more perfect, just a little more enjoyable for everyone.
It’s foolish to think we can fix all of society’s ills, but comforting to know that the people at CAFB work diligently to make Austin a utopia for everyone.
I urge you to give what you can, every time you can.
