Teenage singer/actress Jennette McCurdy has broken her target of raising $100,000 for a children's hospital on her U.S. tour.
The iCarly star, 18, vowed to take donations for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee during her shows and has exceeded expectations by receiving $139,643.
McCurdy, who wrapped the tour on April 14th, says, "What a great few weeks this has been, being able to play for so many great fans that came out to the shows. What made it even better was the opportunity to partner with St. Jude and not only bring awareness to their life-changing facility but also raise money to help the patients that come through their doors."
"I'm proud and honored to be associated with St. Jude and their amazing cause!"
