Sometimes, a simple gesture can mean a lot.

A welcome letter from a kind neighbor to a woman who just moved in next door has gone viral — and you might understand why after reading it.

The man, identified as “Chris,” first provides his new neighbor with “a page of helpful numbers” and the trash collection days. He then gives her of some helpful tips about the heating system and outdoor water facet.

While it’s not clear when or where the letter was authored, it went viral on Reddit this week — amassing thousands of comments — after an individual posted it.

“We need more people like Chris in the world,” one individual commented.

“Wow … how great would the world be if this was the cultural norm,” another echoed.
