I would like to suggest the following 2 edits in red.
> OWASP Members and Supporters,
> OWASP was founded, and is supported as *a non-profit* organization, by
> a group of dedicated volunteers who believe that all applications
> should be secure and trusted. As our organization matures we have
> taken those beliefs broader, and have started setting up ways for our
> members to donate to the global community. Among these initiatives are:
> * OWASP has an active Kiva lending team who have donated $9,050.00
> to date. http://www.kiva.org/community/viewTeam?team_id=522
> * OWASP in response to the need in Haiti has set up a secure and
> trusted way for those within the OWASP community to donate funds
> to help the people of Haiti. This allows our OWASP community to
> help another with a single global voice. 100% of the collected
> donations will be transferred directly to victims for disaster
> relief such as food and medical requirements. Please visit the
> OWASP front page the link for donation is on the right side.
> In a time of crisis, OWASP can help those who are in great need. The
> OWASP community can help organize, support , and promote efforts
> outside of application security.
> OWASP is well aware there is a movement for phishers to utilize this
> tragedy to get unsuspecting people to donate to a “cause” without
> having a legitimate business back end and ultimately funneling all the
> money directly into their own pockets. The OWASP community is
> uniquely qualified to help protect from this type of attack and
> educate about attacks as well.
> As the world becomes more dependent on technology and particularly web
> applications, there are many who need protection who simply have no
> options to protect themselves. These include small companies,
> individuals, charities, and others. The OWASP community can help by
> connecting qualified, trusted resources willing to volunteer their
> time to those organizations which qualify. OWASP is setting up an
> outreach program, which will be under the name project name of OWASP
> for Charities. More information on how to get involved can be found
> We hope you will support OWASPs efforts to make a difference in any
> of the above ways*. We are also open to suggestions in regards to
> where* you feel the OWASP Community can be of service.

> Okay hopefully the formatting will stick this time. Seems to happen
> when I cut and paste from Word. I've asked Daniel for an OWASP for
> Charities project page to link to. I'm out of the office at meetings
> today from 11-4 Central. I'll see things on my phone but won't be
> online until later.
