This is just a "feeler," and I'm trying to gauge the public sentiment, BUT:
What if some of us ex-JW's established a charitable institution to help ex-JW's make the transition to "worldly" life? This idea was pitched to me by my wife, as we lay in bed talking about my ever-present battle with my past - and she said maybe some kind of charitable fund to help ex-JW's go to college, with scholarships, access to counseling services, etc?
This idea is barely even a "germ" of an idea - so I thought I would toss it out here and see what kind of reaction I would get. I was lucky when I got out, my family had already put me through school, but so many - especially young people - get screwed by not being prepared.
Specifically, I was thinking of all these Bethelites that are getting laid off, and maybe some help getting them some education would help them out a little? Of course, it might be difficult to help them when they won't even TALK to ex-JW's, but perhaps the gesture might open some minds?
