There are no valid excuses for not running a tor relay at home. Seriously. Do you monitor your home bandwidth usage? So much unused capacity... And considering that most of the ZeroNet users also use tor... then it makes even more sense!
You can't say it's difficult to configure, here's the few lines you need in your tor confg file. (Which btw is very well documented so just read it.)
$ grep -v '^\s*[#]' /etc/tor/torrc | awk /./
