7-year-old Morgan Marsh-McGlone started a virtual lemonade stand earlier this week with a goal to raise $90. On Friday, she surpassed $20,000 to give to charity.

According to her

Morgan has received more than $12,000 from individual donors in four days.

“We could raise money for a nice organization, and that's probably what inspired me to do it,”

. She chose pay-what-you-can restaurant Little John’s as her beneficiary.

Little John’s founder Dave Heide said that Oregon Community Bank, upon hearing Morgan’s story, committed to match up to $10,000 in the fundraiser.

"I feel like I'm making a difference because this will help a lot of families," Morgan said. "Their goal was $21,000 and we got more than that. I am very surprised that we did that."

Heide explained that approximately $21,000 can feed more than 600 kids for a week.

Extending her fundraiser until May 21, Morgan said her new goal is $30,000.
