More donations are pouring in for those affected by the May tornado outbreak in Oklahoma. An 11-year-old boy from Washington has already started his own non-profit cause.

Elijah Johnson created "1 Brick at a Time." His church helped him raise nearly $900 to buy Legos for kids in El Reno, Moore, and Oklahoma City.

"I think it feels good to see that face on the kids' face. It just gives you a good feeling to give back," Johnson said.

Johnson said his inspiration came back in 2007. That's when his house burned down and a boy gave him a big box of Legos to replace what he lost.
