|KiXtart: Do You Care?|
Over the years, many people have asked when KiXtart would be commercialized. In fact, requests for pricing and licensing information on KiXtart are quite common. If nothing else, all of the above proves that KiXtart has a value.
Rather than commercializing KiXtart, I would like to turn its value into something truly positive. Specifically, I would like to use its value to help people who absolutely need and deserve our support: the people of Nepal.
As part of this initiative, KiXtart 2001 is provided to you as so-called CareWare. Exactly what this means is detailed in the following paragraphs. Please read the information carefully and support the KiXtart CareWare initiative!

If, for whatever reason, you can not donate to any of these organizations, you are kindly requested to donate to Unicef instead:
For more than 53 years UNICEF has been helping governments, communities and families make the world a better place for children. Part of the United Nations system, UNICEF has an enviable mandate and mission, to advocate for children's rights and help meet their needs.
Note: More details on these organizations can be found in the GuideStar directory: http://www.guidestar.org.
Nepal, home of Mount Everest, is one of the poorest countries in the world in relative as well as absolute terms. More than half of the population lives below the poverty line and 53% of the people live on less than US$ 1 per day. Nepal has few natural resources apart from its beauty and hardworking people. Life expectancy is very low, and illiteracy affects more than 50% of the children.Education, medication, and even basic things such as clean water are a luxury in large parts of Nepal. Everyday, a Nepali child goes blind for want of vitamin A, something that can be prevented by a medicine costing less than ten cents.
Additionally, if you choose to register your donation, you will be kept up to date on KiXtart developments, and your (company) name can be included on the list of KiXtart CareWare sponsors.
