Jackson's Jellybean Mania Fundraiser

By Jackson Ritchie

My Challenge for Vision


I'm fundraising for Vision Australia

I'm fundraising for Vision Australia

My name is Jackson, I am 16 years old.  My life changed 5 years ago when my sight suddenly got worse to a point where I was totally blind but my family and I pushed on and I was lucky enough to gain a small bit of sight back.

I am working with Vision Australia as part of a program called LEAP which helps young people who, like me, who are blind or have a low vision build leadership and business skills. As a part of the program we are fundraising to support Vision Australia to help me and other kids like me to get the help with applying for jobs/part time and getting the position we apply for.

So please help me in my journey to help people like me through their lives.

How does my fundraiser work?

It is a virtual fundraiser as current COVID conditions around social distancing preclude you from seeing the jar in person.

I have filled a glass jar with jelly beans.  Enter a guess as to how many jelly beans there are in the jar and go into the draw to win a $50 Coles/Myer Gift Card to use in store or online.

Each guess is $5, the more guesses you make the more chances you have to win.  

No you don’t win the jelly beans due to health and safety concerns.

Entries close 31 May 2020

Please DONATE now to make a secure online donation and secure a brighter future for Australians who are blind or have low vision.

Thanks so much for your support.

Please write your guess in the Support message to Jackson.

(Tip - the jar is bigger than you think - it is about 49cm around the main part of the jar - might help with your guess).
