A (very deserving) Merry Christmas

I hope finals week isn't super stressful for you guys! So, I have a friend on my floor whose been really struggling this semester and I wanted to tell you guys a little bit about what's going on: so basically, she's been "homeless" all of high school, working and paying rent on an apartment all throughout school because her mom wouldn't support her. Recently, she couldn't afford her phone bill so she stopped paying that, but could still use it while on internet. Unfortunately, it dropped and shattered and she doesn't have one anymore. On top of that, recently she found out her liver is failing. So she's been violently vomiting and feels sick all the time. She has no health insurance either. The other thing is, her tire broke on her car, so not only is she trying to buy a new phone, a tire for her car and afford health insurance, but she is staying in towers and must buy groceries for herself over break. I have been so humbled by her, because even though she has all of that going on, she messaged me today saying she bought me a Christmas gift. So despite her having nothing,
(only one pair of socks) and over break no one, she still is giving.
I am wondering if any of you would want to donate a gift so I can secretly decorate her dorm and put gifts under a fake tree that I have. Anything like an old shirt or hat, to a lotion you never used, candy, socks, a mug you didn't want, literally anything just to show her that she is loved and to give her some sort of Christmas sense she has no one to celebrate with or to get gifts even though if anyone she deserves it the most.
I'd be so willing to pick up anything from anywhere on campus, just let me know if you guys have anything. It would honestly mean the world to me.
I hope you all have a wonderful evening.
