For several months now I’ve been fundraising for my Uganda Project to give the gift of sight to hundreds of children in Uganda. One of my fundraising enterprises was a competition to guess the number of sweets in a jar, with the closest guess winning the jar itself (and yes, I did lose count and have to start again).
I must confess that had I not counted the dratted things into the jar myself (one for the jar, one for me, one for the jar… Ok, I jest, even I would have been sick. ) I would have had *no* clue at all where to even begin to make a guess, so I watched the guesses with keen interest, especially when the first two guesses were 375 immediately followed by 2819!
I can now reveal that there are:
861 sweets in the jar
And the lucky winner is *drumroll*
with her excellent guess of 876!
Very many congratulations!! And thanks to all who supported the Uganda Project!
