This came to give at evolt.org. I searched my email and see we had some 
discussion a year ago about Vesana.com. I'm passing this along...

Just an explanation, the reason we haven't sent y'all any money yet 
(per our previous agreement) is that we've only had one customer sign 
up using the EVOLT promo code & he has yet to pay us anything.  I'd 
suspect this because we were never promoted on 
http://www.evolt.org/help_support_evolt/, nor mentioned in 
fundraising efforts.  We are happy to express our continued interest 
in this partnership, at 10% per month per user (current plans are 
$3/$7/custom per month).  If you're not interested, that's fine, but 
we'd like to be informed.

As Vesana.com enters its second year, we are proud of what we've 
become.  With a stable and expanding international user base, a model 
that offers sustainability, profitability and compassion, and a list 
of sponsored sites that includes some of the most pioneering members 
of the nonprofit community, everything is going well.  As the 
calendar year closes, we are adopting a formal "one-to-one" model: 
for every new commercial client, we'll provide equivalent free 
hosting to a nonprofit or charity on our waiting list.  Vesana.com 
hosts clients on a leased, managed dual processer server with a 
backbone 'net connection.  Run by a staff of volunteers, our mission 
is to "help those who help others," providing IT tools and training 
for those working to strengthen local grassroots communities 
regardless of specific politics.
