Hi there!

I'm a former Jehovah's Witness who now spends a sizeable amount of time creating content to help current Jehovah's Witnesses analyse their beliefs, to help ex Jehovah's Witnesses rebuild their lives, and draw media and Government attention to the many human rights abuses and toxic policies of the Watchtower organisation. I use a pseudonym because if my family found out about my activism, they would shun me completely, as per Watchtower instructions. 

I've spent the last few years working hard as an activist, but I've now come to the limits of what I can achieve with the resources available to me. My free time is pretty much used up and I'll need to start cutting into time I usually use to pay the bills if I want to expand my activism. 

With your help I can do more, be better, and reach further.

Here are the current projects that your kind donations will go towards enhancing, both in terms of quality and quantity:

The JW ForwardCast: A podcast that aims to give former Jehovah’s Witnesses, and other members of harmful high control groups the tools they need to rebuild their lives after leaving. I do this by interviewing former members of these groups and discussing strategies and tips that worked for them. With your support, I can buy equipment to increase the quality of these podcasts and increase the amount of time I can devote to creating them.

Regular JW Survey articles: Over the past few years I've been able to write a number of articles for the website JW Survey that report on news and developments in the JW religion, as well as analysing JW doctrine and documenting the stories and life experiences of current and former Jehovah's Witnesses. With your support I can increase the time available for researching and writing these articles, resulting in more frequent content for the website.

High Social Media Presence: I maintain a constant presence on Twitter where I tweet out links to JW related news items, videos or content that I've found online. Your support will mean that I can dedicate more time to trawling the internet and becoming a useful hub for exJW content, as well as devote more time to engaging with JW's in discussion and debate.  

Additionally, as I progress towards my Patreon goals, I will be able to introduce new Podcasts and extra content. I already have ideas for a Podcast that will explore JW history and beliefs from a humorous standpoint, but at the moment I simply don't have the time or resources to make it happen. With your help, this project can become a reality.

So no matter how much you choose to donate, from $1 a month all the way up to 1 diamond encrusted toilet a month, I'll be forever grateful to your support, and pledge to make the content I create as useful to the the cause of exJW activism as it can possibly be.

P.S Kidding about the diamond encrusted toilet.

P.P.S....or AM I?
