OUTintheUK (.com) rejects commercial sponsorship (and investment of that
sort), survives well purely on optional donations from its user base (7-10%
send in money). Employs full time staff and has kick ass servers.

But no one drives a posh car and a Raleigh Racer wouldnt survive the many
hundred miles between the admin and tech office (we left them up in a barn
ingood old York).

I started iPledge www.ipledge.net a year ago. No VC, no investment at all
and despite preconceptions that I have a small army of workers employs
nobody but miysef. Because c. 2./3 of income is donated to charity, I have
just paid 20 cash for a Raleigh racer
Thanks to my Raleigh Racer failing to burn rubber, belch fumes and turn my
arse into a blancmange the size of Warwickshire through lack of exercise, I
can fit into 28" Levis when my age exceeds that number.
I'd call that fairly healthy.
