Announcing the release of Cap-Off, the most amazing bottle cap remover ever invented, and MAJS, the worthy cause to which every purchase contributes.
Cap-Off is an amazingly simple, yet elegant and sophisticated, way to quickly and easily open bottle caps. Cap-Off was started by Michael Salit in 2002, and is being released to the market just this month. Cap-Off is the perfect gift item for beer lovers and is a desirable marketing vehicle for all related industries.
Cap-Off is so much fun to use, you'll find yourself opening every capped bottle in your house. This product fits easily over the top of a capped bottle, and with a light press down, spreads the crimped fitting and dislodges the cap. When Cap-Off is removed, a convenient magnet captures the cap for efficient retrieval. Cap-Off can be purchased directly from the company at their web-site: www.cap-off.com. A large portion of all the profits goes to support the MAJS Educational Fund for Children and Young Adults with Autism and Epilepsy and the Globe Of Life Foundation.
Cap-Off is the perfect vehicle for promoting your brand. The product itself is an inch and three quarters in diameter and two and a half inches tall - just right for placement of your company label. Cap-Off is also a product with staying power. It is so well designed and so fun to use, your customers will keep it right in their kitchens for convenient use all the time. And Cap-Off is not just for beer drinkers. Cap-Off works equally well on all bottle caps. Uses can be found in restaurants, brewpubs, community gatherings, picnic outings, tailgate parties, even retirement homes where bottle opening can be a problem. Cap-Off comes in its own box so sales materials can be included, and further branding may be added to the box's outside white surface. A large portion of the profits go to support the MAJS education fund and the Globe Of Life Foundation.

Cap-Off is not only a great product, but a means to collect the funds needed for the building of a 50-100 acre Globe Of Life Campus north of San Francisco. This rural campus and learning center will provide children and young adults afflicted with autism and epilepsy, an environment that will enable them to have the highest quality of life and provide a nurturing and safe place to live and learn.
Further, it will give family members a way to join in and learn new ways of communicating and participating in their children's lives. Cap-Off has pledged the majority of its profits toward accomplishing this great goal.

MAJS-A California based non-profit organization dedicated to providing education and support services to children with Autism and Epilepsy
In 1985 our son Michael Alexander Julian Salit (M.A.J.S.) was born. He was a colicky baby with sensitive skin and had multiple ear infections. Besides his sensitivity he was a healthy robust developing baby boy. At nine months of age Alex began having seizures, which we believe were caused by a reaction to the DPT vaccine he had at that time. For the next three years Alex took multiple anti-seizure medications to help control his seizures, unfortunately these medications failed to do so. Alex's development slowed considerably and we continuously sought out ways to reach and teach him. At the age of four and a half, Alex was diagnosed with autistic tendencies. This was devastating as well as a relief for us to finally know what caused his unique behaviors. We began to understand that Alex had very specific needs and that there were methods of interacting with children with autism that could be implemented to help us with our son.
When the time came to put Alex in school we began reviewing classes and programs offered in our area. We determined that at least for Alex, the educational programs available did not meet his individual needs. In the process of evaluating the programs offered to us we recognized that there was a tremendous need to provide educational and support services to children like Alex and their families.
Subsequently, after determining that there wasn't a program or placement that was appropriate for our son, we assisted with the opening of the Can-Do School, a school specifically developed to meet the needs of students with autism, communication, and behavior disorders. The school's director developed Individual Education Plans (I.E.P) to meet students' specific emotional, physical, medical, and educational needs. Just as important the school provided training and support for parents, siblings and caregivers so they could play an active role in the consistent facilitation of the individualized educational plan for each child when the children were not in the school program.
In 1989 we began to discuss the possibilities of the formation of M.A.J.S, an educational based non-profit organization to award scholarships and provide support services to families with special needs children. Our scholarships will seek to provide the financial assistance needed to pay for an individually designed educational plan and provide a full time one-to-one aide to enable these children and young adults like Alex to reach their full potential. The cost of such a program with support services can easily exceed $50,000 per year.
In March of this year, 2004, our goal was fulfilled. We received our non-profit status. Our mission is to create a campus-like setting that would provide both residential and non-residential services. We need to raise the money to purchase or build a facility that will encompass all of the necessary services needed to ensure that children, young adults, their siblings, parents, and caregivers have an environment conducive to reaching our goal of providing the highest quality of care and educational services available.
We are working towards meeting our goals each day through Mill Valley Candleworks. Mill Valley Candleworks was started in 2003 by Michael A. Salit (Alex's Father) who has had years of experience in food service and has helped develop computer systems and the technology to manage operations, costing, and inventory controls. Michael has worked on many programs that raise money for non-profit organizations.
Mill Valley Candleworks is located in a small historic building on the outskirts of the town of Mill Valley California. At this facility candles are hand poured, colored and scented and are made from the finest ingredients available. At Mill Valley Candleworks we have developed a program called project "Light a Heart" to help assist organizations with a comprehensive fund raising program. Through" Light a Heart", we offer schools and other organizations the ability to sell high quality candles, as a way for them to raise money to support their individual financial needs and specific causes. From each $15.00 heart candle sold through schools and other organizations $6.50 goes directly to their organization. Mill Valley Candleworks contributes $1.00 from the proceeds it receives is to M.A.J.S. The result is that 50% of all of the sales from project "Light a Heart" go directly to support non-profit organizations. By providing this service we help organizations including M.A.J.S to meet their financial needs and fulfill their other goals and objectives.
We welcome your financial support. We also accept assets and in-kind donations that can be converted into funds so M.A.J.S. can accomplish its mission of providing programs and support services to families, children, and young adults.
For more information about how you can raise money for your organization as well as help support the efforts of M.A.J.S. email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sincerely, Michael A. Salit and Marni K. Salit
