Orbot for Android has a Relay setting. And I would love to use it to help. However, you might want to enable as a default ACTIVE if on WiFi. That way everybody who downloads it can help when on WiFi and not while on a limited mobile phone plan.

Or for those who have limited data plans, they can set the Relay to be on when WiFi is detected.

And if On when WiFi is detected, the phones can also serve as your Exit points. Furthering the cause.

related idea:

"Hey folks, I had a suggestion. There is a feature currently that enables or disables auto-start of orbot. I would like to let orbot start automatically, but at the same time I don't want to use up my data plan. It would be really cool if orbot worked like csipsimple, that is, enabling TOR when connected to wifi and disableing TOR when WIFI has been disconnected. Just some thoughts.
Thanks for your fine hard work,"
