What is the BePartOfJesus project?

1 Corinthians 12:12   The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.

While there are many commercial and social networking photo sites on the web, we came away with the feeling that they lacked real meaning.  We wanted a place where people could participate, come back often, and continue to be inspired.  We are asking people from around the world to contribute photographs in order to build a beautiful, permanent image of Jesus which can serve as an inspiring destination for all on the internet.  


  What is WinToGive ?

When was the last time you were able to give up to $100,000 to a charity of your choice ?  We’re just guessing, but like us, it’s likely never, right ?

WinToGive is a community-based fundraiser for Christian initiatives that allows those who participate to Win The Chance To Give a donation of up to $100,000 to a charity of their choice.  You enter WinToGive. Others enter as well, and the pool builds toward $100,000.  At some point a photo that has been entered into WinToGive will be selected at random and someone – you or a fellow Christian – will be granted a WinToGive opportunity to donate up to $100,000 to a charity of that person’s choosing.

Imagine what it would feel like to be able to donate $100,000 to your local church.  Or feeding the hungry.  Or maybe you know someone with cancer or leukemia where $100,000 could help make a cure a reality.  Or maybe you would like to build a Habitat for Humanity house for Katrina victims.  You can make a difference.


  Does it cost anything to add a photo?

No, it's free to add a photo. Thanks to a large number of volunteers donating time to the project we have managed to keep expenses low. At the completion of the mosaic a poster will be produced with everyones photo and made available to participants who choose to support the WinToGive project. 

For those representing an organization (church, family group, etc.) who would like to include a larger number of photos (ten or greater) please contact us directly at contact@bepartofjesus.com and we can help accommodate your submission.


Can I specify where I want my photo to be located?

Our goal is to make a timeless work of art composed of thousands of contributed images. While we can ensure each approved image will become part of the final mosaic, we cannot control exactly where your particular image will be located.  To create the most attractive final image our mosaic generating process will place each photo in the best location possible.


  Can I submit multiple photographs?

Yes you can, and as long as you add your photos using the same email address, you will be able to locate all of them as the mosaic is created.


  Are there any restrictions on the photographs which will be included in the image?

This site is meant to serve a wide community and create an inspiring image from thousands of photos from around the world.  We reserve the right to reject any submissions which we feel are inappropriate to include in the project.  As this is a project of inspiration, consider how the image you submit is inspirational to you. Appropriate photos could include individuals, families, groups, and other inspiring images.  


  How long will the site be online? 

This site is an important statement on the internet, and our goal is to keep it available indefinitely.  As a minimum we would like the site to be available for 5 years.


  Can I make a suggestion?

We certainly welcome comments and input to the project, and encourage you to contact us at suggestions@bepartofjesus.com.  We are looking forward to hearing from you.
