"'Tony, what do you want for Christmas?'" Sweeney said. "And he's like, 'Oh, well my boots are a little worn out.'"

With the help of others, Sweeney was able to raise enough money to buy Coelho a new pair of boots.

"I think that if everyone did little things to help out their community and help out the people who deserve it the most, it can make the biggest difference," Sweeney said.
