Do you want $500 for you chapter and/or project?

2013 Budgeting is happening at OWASP Foundation - If you have $10, $20, $50
and you are a struggling or new chapter you might buy a bottle of soda or a
pizza....  but what would you do with $500 to kick off 2013 think bigger?

At AppSecUSA 2012 we stated that we have "over 200 chapters" I want to see
us invest in the chapters -- read on... 

 If you had $500 you could do wonderful things right?  So... 200 Chapters *
$500 each = $100,000 investment in OWASP continued volunteerism at chapters
injecting some energy.  For you CPA types ;) OWASP does not actually spend
anything until you have submitted receipts. For this initiative to work
there is a caveat, the chapter would first have to SPEND the money in your
existing bucket to tap into this $500 overdraft.  So if you're one of the
chapters that have funds in your bucket such as the part of the GROWING
TOTAL of $176,638.22 you would have to simply spend what is in your chapter
bucket before tapping this "$500 over-draft". If your chapter has no money
or only a few bucks... you get the idea now you would have $500

 FAQ - How much does your chapter currently have, well that is EASY and
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Donation_Scoreboard  BTW if you need to
borrow money or want a IOU transfer you should contact the chapter leader of
that successful chapter by email and ask for help or you can always ask
OWASP Foundation too btw.  The only thing we are here to do is provide as a
platform for YOU to do great things!  

Additional chapter support materials available today:
what would you like to buy? Want to pick up swag for your next meeting,
gifts for speakers, new banners, grant a local college, host a appsec
awareness social event other??   If you're not having these discussions with
your chapter members you're not helping OWASP grow! 


Calling all PROJECT LEADERS, if you had an additional $500 in each project
that would help you too right?  If you are aligned with your local home
chapter touch base it's OWASP MONEY for one purpose to "Raise Awareness of
Application Security"  Today there is $5,563.10 allocated to the following
projects; https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Donation_Scoreboard (see bottom)
this is one of those situations that if you're not spending it.. #FAIL
