‘EggBoy’ just donated almost $100,000 to Christchurch support groups

Will Connolly, the Melbourne teenager who made headlines in March for egging then-senator Fraser Anning, has donated $99,922 to causes supporting victims of the Christchurch terror attacks.

Connolly’s actions were motivated by Anning’s widely-condemned claim that the 15 March terrorist attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, were ultimately caused by Muslim immigration.

In the wake of the attack, two crowd funding campaigns were established to cover Connolly’s potential legal costs and to help him “buy more eggs”. Connolly promised to donate most of the funds to victims of the attacks, and ended up being represented pro bono by Gordon Legal.

Writing on Instagram this evening, Connolly said he had decided “to donate all monies to help provide some relief to the victims of the massacre.”

“It wasn’t mine to keep,” he wrote.

“After a huge amount of red tape,$99,922.36 has today been transferred to the Christchurch Foundation and Victims Support.

“I want to thank Corey and @sajjad12345 who set up the funds, and every single person who donated to the money and made this possible.

“To the victims of the Tragedy, I whole heartedly hope that this can bring some relief to you.

“Keep spreading the love.”
