Can you imagine yourself spending the summer sailing around the Greek islands with the wind through your hair and the freshest seafood in your stomach?
American for-profit fundraising company Omaze, which partners with charities in fundraising events could make this a reality for you, that too for a good cause.
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 yachting trip, organized by The Moorings. Your seven-day, six-night trip will depart from the Athens Zea marina and you’ll be able to explore the best of the Greek islands.
You can explore the history in Poros or Hydra or relax on the beach in Cape Sounion Bay. Or you could 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. Two additional guests are allowed to come on the journey if they pay for their own travel to and from the yacht.
Raising funds for a noble cause
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 contest 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. The contest runs through May 27 and a winner will be announced around June 9. The lucky winner will have about two years to book their dream vacation to Greece.
