The teenager caught the world's attention after cracking an egg on the head of controversial Australian politician Fraser Anning after he made victim blaming comments about the March 15 attacks in which 51 people were killed.

Mr Connolly took to Instagram last night to announce the donation. "Finally!!! After a huge amount of red tape, $99,922.36 has today been transferred to the Christchurch Foundation and Victims Support," he wrote.

Two GoFundMe pages were set up for Mr Connolly to "buy more eggs" and cover legal fees after he was arrested following the egging. He was not charged.

"Gratefully, Gordon Legal acted pro bono 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."
