Beep Beep & Co.
I am glad to hear some dubs have donated their hair so obviously my statement they would never do it was incorrect. I hereby revise it to "MOST jws would never do it". I will be more careful to speak in legalese from now on.
I wanted to be involved in charity work when I was a dub and it was prohibited. I remember wanting to do a walkathon and since my dad was an evil unbeliever, my mother left the decision to the elders as usual. I had to ask the elders' permission, and of course they said no, it would be better to use that time to stay home and read the Youth book. So I guess raising money to save a wildlife refuge from development....by taking a walk in the park......was much worse than sitting on the couch reading the same exact teachings I was already familiar with. To this day I have never personally known even one JW who participated in a charity; it was/is prohibited here. Keep in mind I live in
WT NY state, so maybe the proximity to the mother org made my experience different than yours.
My belief that dubs are rarely involved in charities has been borne out by the many experiences of others, not the least of which was the insular "dubs only" response the JWs had to the horrible hurricanes in the South.
