You can rent a real (not virtual) 100Mbps server for less than $10/month.

I realize that $10 can be a lot of money if you're struggling to put 
food on the table.  For others, though, that's the cost of 2 beverages 
at Starbucks per month.  Not such a burden.

There is also the option of donating money to organizations that run 
exit nodes.  This is less desirable than running an exit yourself (due 
to further concentration of exit capability by big players) but still 
beneficial.  I doubt that they would turn away a $5/month donation.
