Weʼre raising £1,500 to help my best friend pay for some of his University so he doesn't have to skip meals or sell personal belongings.

I am raising money for someone very special to me. A best friend. Ryan works extremely hard receiving no help from anyone. He is a current student. Ryan goes to class, pays for everything himself out of pocket and works long hours every week. Studying means a lot to him and he has been through a lot in his life with personal struggles and I want to take the weight of his shoulders by raising some money for him to help pay for his education. He will do anything for anyone and I am just asking someone to help me help him and give him something for a change. He skips meals to be able to afford text books and sells his personal belongings. Every little helps and he won't even want a lot. It breaks my heart. His home is University. Please, you have no idea how much this help would mean to him. He is saving up everything he has to pay for his classes. I am helping as much as I can, so please help me make him happy. I am trying my best and I just simply need a little bit of help. It would mean the world to me and I know it would truly make a big difference in his life. It truly truly would. Thank you so much in advance. Help me take the weight of his shoulders. I am donating too and I hope to get this to him as a Christmas gift! Even one dollar or a pound will help.
