The combat boots had to stay out overnight, so a group of U. Mass students volunteered to camp out. It was a particularly cold night. A homeless man wandered over to where they were camped and told the students that as long as he had to stay outside overnight, he might as well help guard the boots. They put him inside one of the tents and encourged him to go inside one of the buildings to keep warm. Eyes Wide Open tends to encourage incredibly generosity from many unexpected places.
