Andrea Juby, Vancouver
While I was looking for a new apartment this fall, my current building manager — who was a stranger to me at the time — offered to hold a beautiful light-filled studio for a whole month until I was ready to move in. She said, “We don’t want to bankrupt you before Christmas!” I walked away on air, I was so moved. That immense kindness created a real sense of home for me. I am so grateful to her and I look forward to my opportunity to pay that kindness forward.
