The 17-year-old was filmed soaking Fraser Anning with an egg during a press conference in March, after the 69-year-old politician said Muslim migration was to blame for the terror attack, in which a white supremacist killed 51 people praying at two city mosques.
The Melbourne student gave A$100k (£55,000) to survivors from GoFundMe campaigns set up to fund his legal fees and to “buy more eggs with.”
Connolly took to Instagram to share his news: “Finally!!! After a huge amount of red tape, $99,922.36 has today been transferred to the Christchurch Foundation and Victims Support,” he wrote.
For those of you who don’t know, there were 2 Go Fund Me pages set up to help cover the cost of my legal fees and to ‘buy more eggs.’ Gratefully, Gordon Legal acted probono for me so I don’t have any legal fees. I decided to donate all monies to help provide some relief to the victims of the massacre…it wasn’t mine to keep.
To the victims of the Tragedy, I whole heartedly hope that this can bring some relief to you.
Keep spreading the loving.
People are praising his generosity.
