Here's a unique story of giving unselfishly to help others. And it comes courtesy of an 11-year-old boy.

Jack Tomlinson decided there wasn't really anything he needed for his 11th birthday. So he's donating all of his gifts to the pediatric ward at St John Medical Center. Jack's two brothers have both been patients in the ward in the past. Jack Tomlinson: "They get presents when they go. Because they get really bored, so why can't the other - kids that go to the hospital not get presents either."

Jack says he already has plenty of toys. So instead for his birthday, he spent the day swimming with his family.
