It Couldn't Be Done

By Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn't be done But he with a chuckle replied That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it!

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that; At least no one ever has done it;" But he took off his coat and he took off his hat And the first thing we knew he'd begun it. With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure, There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it; Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

Do you want to spend the end of summer sailing around the Aegean Sea? You and a loved one on a yacht, the wind blowing through your hair, the freshest seafood in your stomach. The only thing that’s stopping us from living out this dream- money. Uh, yeah, same. Well, we’re in luck! Omaze has announced a new contest to win a weeklong private yacht charter through the Grecian Isles.

The lucky winner will get to take a companion on a one-week luxury yacht trip, organized by The Moorings. The seven-day, six-night trip will depart from the Athens Zea marine and you’ll be able to explore the best of the Greek islands. You can explore the history in Poros and Hydra or relax on the beach in Cape Sounion Bay. Or you can opt to enjoy the waters and spend your time snorkeling off the boat. The prize includes meals prepared by an onboard chef, a $1,000 stipend, watersports equipment, and flights out to Athens, where you’ll stay in a four-star hotel. Side note: two additional guests are allowed to come with you if they pay for their own travel to and from the yacht.

The contest is being organized to raise funds for the International Medical Corps, a global first responder organization that provides disaster relief like medical supplies, hygiene kits, medical staff, and mental health support in emergency response scenarios. While you can enter the raffle without a donation, making a donation will increase your chances of winning. By donating $10, you’ll receive 100 entries. A $50 donation will bump you up to 1,000 entries, and a $100 contribution will increase your chances with 2,000 entries. For more information and details about the contest, visit the Omaze website. The contest runs through October 29 and a winner will be announced around November 17. The lucky winner will have about two years to book their dream vacation to Greece!
