I made a friend on Instagram recently named Patrick, who hails from Minnesota and is naturally a Twins fan. He and I have chatted pretty much every day, and I have helped him find some nice vintage for his collection, and also made a couple care packages for him to add some Twins to his binders.
He's a really nice guy, and seemingly enjoys the hobby as much, if not more than I do! In response to the packages I sent him, Patrick went through his boxes of cards and his albums to find me some Orioles cards that he could send my way.

I know he appreciates me helping him add some nice stuff to his collection. I also know that when he is in the position I am in later on, he will go out of his way to help out someone who may be new to the community, or is trying to build their collection. I can tell that is how Patrick is. I'm glad I have been able to help him, and I sincerely appreciate him sending me this care package. I'm also very happy that I have a new friend that I can send care packages to!
