'Egg Boy' Will Connolly raises enough money to enrol over 900 refugee children in child-friendly spaces

The Australian teenager known as "Egg Boy" has raised enough money to allow 902 children in refugee camps to be enrolled in child-friendly spaces.

Will Connolly, who came to fame after egging controversial Senator Fraser Anning, posted on Instagram on Wednesday saying that participating in WorldVision's 40 Hour Famine, he had been confirmed as the highest individual fundraiser in Australia.

Connolly egged Anning after he made comments blaming Muslims on the Christchurch shooting, where a gunman killed 51 people and two of the city's mosques.

In the wake of the egging, two GoFundMe pages were made to help pay his legal fees for egging the politician but instead donated nearly $100,000 to the victims of the mosque attacks.

Connolly's generosity has continued.

"Remember the WorldVision fundraiser that I asked you guys to donate $1 each earlier this year? Well, today [Wednesday] I received this message that the money that was raised from this Instagram account allowed 902 children in refugee camps to be enrolled in child-friendly places," he wrote on Instagram, accompanied by a photo of a text message from a World Vision representative.

He thanked those who had supported the cause and donated.

"You have all made a massive impact on each of these 902 children's lives and that's something to live for!"

The post had received more than 15,000 likes since being shared on Wednesday.

In the wake of the egging incident earlier this year, he admitted it hadn't been the right method of protest, but it had positive consequences.

"I understand what I did was not the right thing to do, however, this egg has united people, and money has been raised, tens of thousands of dollars have been raised for those victims," he told The Project Australia in May.

Connolly said the incident blew out of proportion and it was "embarrassing" that it had taken attention away from the victims of the Christchurch attack.
