The shareware system would work best for these little programs. If it
were me, I would just use the honor system -- a pop-up window on program
startup that says "friendly reminder: This program costs $12.99. Have
you paid me for it or contributed to charity in my name yet? (yes/no)" 
Even though some (or even many, who knows?) people won't pay, it's worth 
the exposure. Another advantage is if people like what they download, 
they will come back and look for other things. In effect, your previous 
programs can advertise your newer programs.  Exposure is valuable.
