Are There Any Worthy Non-Watchtower Charities?

    Jehovah's Witnesses are subtly discouraged from contributing to any charities other that the Watchtower Society. While acknowledging that groups other that the WT may do "some good", JW's may feel that charitable groups are generally dishonest, wasteful or simply not doing things "Jehovah's way."

    Now, as an ex-JW, have you found any charities worthy of your monetary support?

    I will submit one, but I know there are many others.

    Ive done some volunteer work with an organisation called Australian Aid International a very small but very in touch organisation involved in healthcare and shelter for disaster victims.

    Well worth a look.

    Well. I must suggest that since the watchtower HAS no charities of any kind, and is in fact simply a money grubbing corporate whore that ALL worthy charities are NON watchtower related!

    smellsgood, which is sort of an educational/charitable organization, what Devon said (doctors without borders) Mercy Ships is very much along this vein ( and World Vision is a great one too.

    In Canada many grocery stores have baskets for those who want to contribute a can or box of food, baby needs (diapers, formula etc). - no perishables please

    Everything that is donated goes to the food banks for those who need the extra help. Believe me it is well appreciated.
