Private Donation for an International Student

Hi Friends,  I want to take the time out to say thank you as an opening statement for your generosity. Today, a friend shared her story with me about being a first-generation college student and the many challenges that it comes with financially, it is no secret to me that college is insanely expensive. Taking the time to write this is telling because college and accessibility to education need to happen already. She is in her first semester at Kansas State University studying science. I am attempting to raise funds privately as she has no clue that I am doing this because I wish someone would have done something like this for me, without overtly displaying my struggling. Speaking up and reaching out is hard. I took the time to take this step as a friend, a former college student, and first-generation student myself. I would be extremely grateful if you decided to extend a helping hand by donating to the cause. These donations are for college books. I will make sure that she takes a picture and send a thank you as a form of gratitude. If you would like to know more about her and her story please feel free to ask and I will update you all accordingly.
