Since he was 4, Spencer Jonas has given up gifts on his birthday so he can give back to his community. Spencer's sacrifice has led to an even greater gift; a yearly tradition of collecting food for the food bank on Whidbey Island. 

Spencer gives the food collected to Good Cheer Food Bank

"Every year I set a goal of collecting more food than the last year. I have met that goal all but one time, but I learned that was okay, too!" Spencer said in his ask letter. 

Now for his 12th birthday, he set a goal of 2,000 pounds and he surpassed that by collecting 9,129 pounds.
