membership during our Summer Membership Drive! Over the course of 8 days, we
accumulated 160 new members and 40 membership renewals for a total of $10,000
USD raised for OWASP. $4,000 of that will directly go to benefit the OWASP Projects Reboot.

"Good marketing campaign!"
" Thanks for the great
promotion to remind guys like me that my membership was up for renewal.
