For a organization that "doesn't ask for money" they sure do ask a lot.
I've been noticing that over the last few months "disaster relief" has been brought up in almost everything JW. WT, congregation study, Broadcast, special updated video, etc...
& I've noticed two things every time it gets brought up, which is a lot lately.
They talk about giving physically and how much money will be needed for the disaster relief work. That we should be generous. I bet a small fraction of donations goes to that. Yet, they are using these tragedies as a opportunity to fleece the flock making them think they need to donate a ton to help brother X on some island. Yet, they have no idea what portion of their money if used to actually help them. There isn't even a way to donate directly to the relief fund.
The 2nd thing I noticed is that that are touting this as a reason they are a charity to keep their tax free status.
