As part of our commitment to contributing back to society, a proportion of sales of BackupAssist is donated to charities.
We currently support children through World Vision Australia and are continually increasing our support. We take the time to do this because we feel that it is important to give back to this wonderful planet, and we encourage others to do the same.
With your ongoing support of BackupAssist, we hope to grow our support of charities and make a lasting contribution to the world. We realise this through our aim of delivering quality software to you. It's your support of BackupAssist that makes it all possible. Thank you.
I hope that the stories of these children will be an inspiration to you and encourage you to contribute to your favorite cause for the benefit of the entire world.
