Looks good.  You have already received plenty of feedback about creating
confusion as to who is sponsoring these relays, so I'm not going to
address it further.  

My advice is that if you are trying to attract non-technical people to
donate money in order to create more relays, your index page needs to be
far less technical.  As examples, look at the difference in
http://www.charitywater.org/ versus http://www.watercharity.org/.   They
roughly do the same thing in the eyes of a normal person.  The former
website is much more successful at public fundraising according to their
990 filings.  

Also, explain how creating more tor/i2p nodes helps the normal person.
Or, who it actually helps.  And I suggest having two simple
thermometers; total funds raised and number of nodes possible per year.

Overall, I'm happy we have people starting to try to create more relays,
whether through this model or the Coldboot UK model.  

Good luck.
