However, if you subscribe to PanelWhiz and within a 3-month time period, a new data distribution is released by the providers of the packages you subscribe to, then you may update WITHOUT making any donation to the named charities. This should happen automatically.

Why do users of PanelWhiz make a donation to the above named charities?
    - An intuitive answer from Victor Hugo's "Les Miserables", Volume Five / Book One / Chapter IV

    "See, here is a pretty, healthy child, with cheeks like an apple, who babbles, prattles, chatters, who laughs, who smells sweet beneath your kiss,--and do you know what becomes of him when he is abandoned? I have seen one, a very small creature, no taller than that. His father was dead. Poor people had taken him in out of charity, but they had bread only for themselves. The child was always hungry. It was winter. He did not cry. You could see him approach the stove, in which there was never any fire, and whose pipe, you know, was of mastic and yellow clay. His breathing was hoarse, his face livid, his limbs flaccid, his belly prominent. He said nothing. If you spoke to him, he did not answer. He is dead. He was taken to the Necker Hospital, where I saw him. I was house-surgeon in that hospital. Now, if there are any fathers among you, fathers whose happiness it is to stroll on Sundays holding their child's tiny hand in their robust hand, let each one of those fathers imagine that this child is his own."
