EggBoy’s Eggceptional donation

Posted May 29, 2019
Drum roll please. Our ‘Gold Award’ this week goes to Will Connolly AKA EggBoy, the teenager who took offence so took an egg and cracked it on the head of Australian Senator Fraser Anning’s head.
While we don’t condone egging anyone we do applaud Will’s sympathy for and generous donation to the victims of the Christchurch massacre.
Will Connolly had listened to Fraser Anning’s hate speech for an hour before he decided to launch his golden egg and said, “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 has been raised for those victims.”
EggBoy posted this comment on his social media.
Finally!!! After a huge amount of red tape, $99,922.36 has today been transferred to the Christchurch Foundation and Victims Support. 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. 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.
