Why the hell do people do this right before the holidays?

My future mother-in-law was laid off unexpectedly this week. She probably had a week's notice. Is there anything I can do?

(Not my question, but--Why the hell do people do this right before the holidays?)
Background: I am pretty poor myself--graduating from college in a few weeks, looking for a job, planning a wedding etc., so I don't really have the means to help her financially. She is a single mother and my fiance's younger brother still lives at home. We have a good relationship although not terribly close.
Should I do anything? I thought about sending a note to let her know I was thinking about her, but I didn't know if bringing it up would make it worse.
