A spokesman for Mary's Meals - the charity benefiting from school girl Martha Payne's meal blog and fundraising page - said they have been "overwhelmed" by the response.
"Martha's support for Mary's Meals has been incredible and we are extremely grateful for everything that she has done to help us reach some of the hungriest children in the world.
"We are overwhelmed by the huge response to her efforts which has led to so many more people donating to her online donation page. Thanks to this fantastic support, Martha has now raised enough money to build a kitchen in Malawi and to feed an entire school with Mary's Meals for a whole year."
A nine-year-old blogger has raised more than £60,000 for charity after a council overturned a ban on her taking photos of her school meals.
Donations to Martha Payne's fundraising website are continuing to pour in today after she was told she could resume posting photos to her NeverSeconds blog, which reviews her meals at her school's cafeteria in Lochgilphead, Argyll.
Roddy McCuish, Leader of Argyll and Bute Council, has issued a statement following the reversal of a ban on a nine-year-old girl's school dinner blog:
Argyll and Bute Council has dropped its ban on photographs taken in school dining halls after internet users expressed their outrage at the rule which put a halt to a successful school dinner blog run by a nine-year-old.
Council leader Roddy McCuish told BBC Radio 4's World at One:
"I have just instructed senior officials to withdraw the ban on photos from the school dining hall.
"It is a good thing to do, to change your mind and I have certainly done that."
