A 9-year-old girl who is raising money for Minneapolis by making and selling bracelets in her front yard has raised more than $50,000 to help people of Minneapolis.

Kamryn Johnson, the daughter of former Gophers star wide receiver Ron Johnson, began her jewelry venture last week and it quickly blossomed into a moneymaker for families in need in Minneapolis. 

The jewelry stand was featured on "Good Morning America" on Monday, during which host Robin Roberts announced the show and Little Caesars have donated $10,000 to the fundraiser. 

Here's the segment: 

Ron Johnson told Roberts they had raised about $42,000 as of Monday morning, so the $10,000 has put them over the $50,000 mark. 

Johnson tweeted thanks to "Good Morning America" and Roberts, saying Kamryn "can't stop smiling" and it "has been a blessing for her to be around her friends every day for the past eight days."
