We met a young Syrian man at a vegan restaurant who had such a bright friendly smile that we couldn’t resist paying for his lunch.

We also gave him an “unconditional love for $0” receipt to pay it forward. He read it and thanked us.

“You want to pay for everyone? 5 tables?” she asked.

He then asked me for more love receipts to give away.

“I’m glad I didn’t meet you at a steak house or my bill would’ve been so expensive!” he joked.

Thank you Vancouver for welcoming Syrian refugees.
