Organizations around the globe have the opportunity to take part in the massive 'Human Z Project', a way to connect with people around the world while raising money for their favorite charities.
Jeffrey Ng, Founder/CEO of Zorpia.com, which is sponsoring the project, said the company aimed to set world records for the largest human letter ever formed.
"Any number of people can assemble and line-up in the shape of the letter Z (for Zorpia.com, of course) and have their photo taken to raise money for charity."
"Each participant in the photograph will earn US$3 for their charity of choice," Mr. Ng said.
"Participants may nominate a charity or select from our suggested list of international charities.
"Individuals or official organizations participating, will have their information published at Zorpia. However, anyone can take part - even groups of friends - as long as they are over the age of 16."
The project will be launched in July 2007 and will provide an opportunity for individuals and organizations to show their creativity by submitting the largest 'Human Letter Z' photographs from around the world.
"For example, college students who are passionate about the environment could organize 25 of their classmates to assemble in the shape of a Z, take a photo with a cell phone and earn a quick $75.00 for the EarthWatch Institute," Mr. Ng said.
Participants do not need to be Zorpia.com members to enter the contest.
The Project runs from July 1, 2007 through August 31, 2007.
Participants can enter their photographs in one of four submission rounds beginning on the following dates: July 2, July 23, August 6 and August 20, 2007.
Mike Enjo, Projects Manager for Zorpia.com said the largest group photo at the end of each session will be deemed the winner, and funds will be donated to their nominated charity.
"Zorpia.com set out to create a fun way to help people raise money and to help spread the word about its six-million-member global social network site."
Participants need to follow these steps to have their pictures properly submitted:
- Assemble a group together
- Take a picture of the group in the shape of the letter Z (from any direction or distance)
- There are no rules to the picture - be creative!
- The contest runs from July 2, 2007 through September 3, 2007
- The money raised will go towards the charity identified in the submissions
- All Z pictures should be submitted to HumanZ @ Zorpia.com
