A Baton Rouge boy cashed in for his 8th birthday, and then did the unthinkable. He gave all the money away to charity.

After he saw a commercial for neglected dogs by the ASPCA, Ethan St. Amant decided to give the animal welfare group all his birthday money.

Ethan has his own webpage to keep raising money through the ASPCA.
Since his birthday last week, he's helped raise almost $500.

He said he hopes to keep raising money for neglected animals and making sure they stay safe.
