    As the excitement of moving into a brand-new home builds, remember that this next move is more than an opportunity to build a house from the ground up with your own personal signature. It also comes with the prospect of developing new, meaningful connections that could last forever; networks that can enrich lives and promote well-being. During the pandemic lockdowns, neighbors who previously hadn’t known each other’s names learned what they had in common. On breaks outside from working from home or distance learning from home, they stopped and chatted in front of their homes. They exchanged phone numbers and formed new messaging groups to encourage and assist one another. Simple messages became the norm, such as, “I’m at the store and have room in my cart. What can I pick up for any of you to save you a trip out?” or “Hi, everyone. In case you didn’t hear, we’ll be back in the purple tier tomorrow. Stay safe.

As the pandemic stretches on, a wave of generosity is growing, thanks to the site, which connects people who need help with those who can give it. The idea was born when Shelly Tygielski of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, decided “to create connection [and] community and strengthen the bonds of love between us.” She posted a launch video and signup links, and when she “woke up the next morning, there were already 400 requests to get help and 500 to give help,” Tygielski said. A hashtag spread the word—wouldn’t you notice #PandemicofLove?—and “within the first 24 hours I received an email offering to start a Pandemic of Love community for San Francisco, and within two to three days I got messages to create communities in Portugal and Barcelona,” she said. “Now I get at least...
