I agree with marioger. A thank you note would cost nothing and would be
nice. I became a member beginning of 2012 and as of today I haven't received
anything, save for a subscription to the trisquel-members mailing list.
Maybe the Trisquel USB key is in the mail - I have no way of knowing. I
think a little bit of transparency wouldn't hurt, especially since it seems
to be hard to find members.

And what about the Trisquel themed USB-stick with a live image? I thought all
members get these.

A little expression of gratitude to your donors costs nothing and may go
a long way. Also, consider giving progress reports on what is being
done with the contribution. Nobody wants the impression that her
donation is going into some sort of 'money sink'.

If we talk publicity, we should ask why Trisquel Planet is still in spanish? It should be in english i think.
