Students collecting money to give a gift to a teacher

Q: My classmates want to give a gift to the class teacher (non-muslim) as she is leaving the school this year, so they are taking money from all the students in order to buy a gift. My question is whether I should give money or not?

A: If you need to give it then you rather give it on your own.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
