Get Involved


Occasionally we receive emails from readers who want to get involved in our work of surveying the opinions of Jehovah’s Witnesses and providing objective analysis of Watchtower developments. This page offers a number of suggestions as to how you can help out.

Spread the word

jw-sound-carAre you active on social media, such as Facebook, Twitter or Reddit? If so, you can be of enormous help to JWsurvey by sharing links to important articles. Roughly 20% of our site traffic comes from links that have been shared in this way, and you never know how many of these hits are Jehovah’s Witnesses accessing information for the first time.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are still a Witness or are scared of repercussions through Witness friends/family, we would strongly recommend setting up social media accounts under a pseudonym, and not sharing ANY personal information online that could identify you.

Links to the social media accounts used by JWsurvey can be found below…

If you are able to be even more public in helping us with our work, you can print out and distribute flyers aimed at (1) directing Witnesses to our website, and (2) raising awareness among non-Witnesses.

Two different flyers have been designed to promote JWsurvey.org and JWfacts.com to Witnesses and non-Witnesses. Download links are provided below…

JWsurvey flyer for JWs:

“10 Questions For Jehovah’s Witnesses To Consider”

Letter version (English) | A4 version (English)

Translations: Czech/Slovak | Dutch | Romanian | Norwegian | German

JWsurvey flyer for non-JWs:

“Why Jehovah’s Witnesses Need Your Help”

Letter version (English) | A4 version (English)

Translations: Romanian | Dutch | German

Witnesses tend to be suspicious when it comes to accepting literature from others – especially literature that might criticize their beliefs. However, with a degree of tact and sincerity there is every likelihood that a Witness will read a sensitively-worded leaflet if his peers are unaware that he has it, and he already has doubts.

Submit material

    I’m sure a door knocker will not accept a flyer, since they are with a carload of JW’s. Do you have any ideas for reaching JW’s, besides waiting for them to come to your door? I would love to help people start to reason for themselves, without the aid of the Watchtower publication to “guide” their thought process.

  2. M says:

    I have a suggestion for your 10 questions for witnesses, relating to the 1914 doctrine. While the quote is powerful, I find it even more powerful to point out that the last days in their chronology originally began in 1799.

  3. 70wksofyrs says:

    Cedars,
    Thank you for the time, effort, and money spent helping us with your website. We would truly love to repay you in any way we can.

    I will send you an email with our offer of how we are able to get involved.

    Thank you
    70wks…….

  4. Nancy says:

    It has been my experience very few people care about exposing unrighteousness. The few people who care become Jehovah’s Witnesses and when they find out the society isn’t so much for exposing unrighteousness as it is for exhalting itself, those few leave. I have made it my occupation to right wrongs, but I haven’t found anyone who cares about what I see. Not one.

    I won’t quit though. When I feel it is appropriate to include a link on forum or on my blog I do. But evidence so far points to nobody cares. I realize many people care about their own project. My project is God’s Word and I’m alone. I haven’t met anyone yet who cares about the rightness of God’s Word.

  5. 70wksofyrs says:

    Cedars,
    I hope you realise how powerful your work on this site is. My precious girl and I just had a really nice chat. I put pressure on her, but I am so forgivable. Its a rough ride, ups and downs but you have made me laugh on my most stressed days.

    You are so funny even when you aren’t trying to be, you do need to lighten up sometimes. We all take things personally if we didn’t we would still be in the WTBTS.

    We are going to get involved, spreading the word and getting people to take your survey.

    70wks….

  6. Junebug says:

    After I left the organization, I found a pamphlet on line and printed & copied it. I also typed up a simple letter with the greeting as “Dear Jehovah Witness Friend. I would sign the letter with my initials only. Example:
    LJW- Your Ex Jehovah Witness Friend.

    I got out the phone book and addressed these letters to those who attended my local KH. I didn’t send them out all at once, but over a period of weeks, months. This was my ministry to them. Who knows how many hearts were reached or doubts that were made.

  7. Jay says:

    Yes the rightness of goods word is something where I am asking myself, what is the right way to go. I was born in the truce, was never baptised, though. I have God and Jesus in my heart, but I don’t accept the rules of GB. We will see what the time bring us. I have the feeling there are a lot likeminded people, who think the same.

  8. Mark says:

    Give me a grenade launcher, I’ll happily aim it at every WT property I come across and I’ll pull the trigger over and over again. If this means going to prison, no problem, I can live with that. This corporation needs to be disposed of. Quickly. I hate them.

    Too many years I suffered abuse at their hands. My childhood I would not wish on my worst enemy. Then years later, I lost my son because of this arsehole sect. I was born in (very strict parents) 3rd generation.

    The JW’s want their worst ‘terrorist’ nightmare to come true? Yeah bring it on. If I could physically nuke all of their properties, I would plain and simple – I think they’re rotten to the core.

  9. JenniBenson says:

    hi there. I am so grateful that I have found this site. I live in South Africa, and you will not believe how active the organisation is here. I would like to get involved….publicly. There are very few south Africans that are aware of these sites…I just happened to be bored one day, and was looking up Jehovahs Witnesses on FB to see what would crop up. Imagine my delight when I found support groups for those of us who were left in limbo, cut off from our familys by the watchtower. like most, I still have close family in the organisation. I would really like to start speaking out, and educating people. Please email me, and let me know what needs to be done. you are all doing amazing work!!!

  10. Kaitlyn says:

    Laundry rooms where they leave all their literature…You can leave some of your own 🙂 Some people print out stickers with jwsurvey.org on them and stick them to the Watchtower and Awakes already there.

  11. Kaitlyn says:

    ^Dangit. I was trying to reply to Faithful Witness…Probly should’ve checked the date before I replied. Lol Now I feel dumb.

  12. Jerry O Connor says:

    Mark you are a man after my own heart. But the head say`s no to extremism no matter how we would wish to vent our anger even hatred on watchtower. Let me put a scenario to you. Mister Xjw decides to place a bomb at a convention. Hundreds are killed and many more injured. The Brooklyn Dodgers aka the GB would have just what they want. Propaganda on an enormous scale with new captives lining up to join. So it would be counter productive to us and to all who may wish to escape this evil cult. Use the jw tactic, smother with love and truth. This time the love would be unconditional and yes the truth would be just that. I take it that you are a young man Mark,, I am 56 but I well know how you feel An Irish saying goes “A good run is better than a bad stand” So let us keep chipping away at the rotten edifice.

    Jerry.

  13. Hi Cedars,

    It’s been 11 years since my disfellowshipping, and I found my voice on the matter about 6 years after the fact. I applaud your site in that it attempts to fight the root of the issue without making people feel you’re steering them in some other weird direction.

    I want to start a campaign that follows witnesses to the preaching work and knocks on the same doors directly after the witnesses do. The pamphlet I want to leave would be about the cognitive dissonance caused by the teachings of Jehovah’s Witnesses. I then wish to publish video of that act everywhere for witnesses to see.

    This seems like the best approach to stifle new growth and will peek the interest of those in their preaching work.

      You may wish to go “ahead” of the WatchTower folks. I get lots of people knocking on my front door, trying to sell me everything from a new dentist to prepaid funerals/ cremation services. It just hit me, the link: both have something to do with filling cavities, Oh well I admit the weird sense of humor. So if I just finished with the JWs and a minute later ringy-dingy, I won’t be happy. Drop off the JW Facts printable pamphlet to help prepare the residents to deal with the WT and ask “interesting” questions. Prior to the yearly convention in Tucson, Arizona, I get dozens of kids and some adults inviting me to attend. I kept and dated the *27 invites I was handed or found jammed under the mat or wedged in the door frame, I had 9 sets of callers from the Tower I did speak with. So imagine if you covered a few neighborhoods just as or before the Witnesses start handing out invites for the 2015 convention. You think there might be a less welcoming response greeting those in Field Service? * I suspect since I was using my real name to comment to Apostanestra sites, some in the congregation were sent to see who I was and if anyone knew me.

    I agree with this writer,they destroyed my LIFE!While these pricks live in the lap of luxury,are exalted and the red carpet every where they go! This is (EVIL) and where IS the JUSTICE!! MURDER,S , EXTORIONISTS , THEVE,S AND CON ARTIST,S! you took the words right out of my mouth, NUKE EM!!

    I would suggest EVERYONE reads the contents of this website. Prepare to have your eyes opened. They have lied from the beginning and destroy letters and evidence constantly.

  16. Dogila Soft says:

    We (DogiLa Soft) developed a new Android application to help the overseers get the full benefit of “the opportune time” (Eph 5:16).

    Among the fine qualities required of overseers is that of being orderly. —1 Tim. 3:2
    “Theocratic Timer 2015” is a valuable tool for an overseer who appreciates this quality. It is our desire to help each one to apply 1 Cor. 14:40 with your progressive counsel and to avoid parts that are rushed in or poorly developed.

    Share this app and make the App reachable throughout the JW Ministry.

  17. Excelsior! says:

    Dogila Soft,

    Why are you advertising your apps on this site, of all places?

    You do realise that this is a site that no self respecting Elder would visit, don’t you?

    Still, now that you are here, allow me to reccomend some apps that would be of real benefit:

    1. An app that contacts child services and the police as soon as any phone call to the legal department at Bethel is contacted about child abuse.

    2. An app that can access the original works butchered by the WTBTS in their quotations, with a feature that makes plain their dishonest punctuation and grammar.

    3. An app that identifies wife beaters and automatically contacts the police.

    I hope that my suggestions are of benefit to you.

    Peace be with you, Excelsior!

  18. Average Joe says:

    @Excelsior
    I’M a self-respecting elder and I’m on here! 😉
    Your name reminds me of a Federation ship from Star Trek.
    Let me know when you have the App finished!
    Yes advertising comments and hate comments on here should really be removed as per guidelines. Job for the admins.
    Peace back at you.

  19. No0neSpecial says:

    I would love to send a link of Georffrey Jackson’s Australian Court testimony. So many inconsistencies with “Published” teachings. My only problem is, it can’t be associated with any so-called “Apostates”, by name associated with the video, otherwise the “mummy’s/my family” I send it to, wont read it. Anyone got video link?

  20. Beth Sarim says:

    I am very greatful for this website. It really helps me see what we are dealing with. I really appreciate the heads up from you guys before something is released to the JW’s. Keep up the good work!!! Very Thankful.

  21. Eugene Walker says:

    Maybe this book will touch base on a couple of things.

    Jehovah’s Witnesses Exposed!: What Really Goes On Inside the Kingdom Hall Walls

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017PJBAUM

  22. Winston Smith says:

    The “Why Jehovah’s Witnesses Need Your Help” document is very concise and well-written. However, I think I may have found a minor typo on Page 2, paragraph 3 where it states: “Cult expert Steven Hassan of freedomofmind.com has identified five key strategies…”

    It then goes on to cite the BITE model. But that’s only 4 strategies, not 5, right?

    I recently got absorbed with your videos after seeing you do an interview with Chris Shelton. I was in the process of watching all of his videos on Scientology and moved right on to watch all of yours. Well done!

    Imagine my surprise when I got a letter in the mail from a JW telling me to go to JW.org for more information. I plan to send her your pamphlet and asking her to check out your website as well. Thanks for the work you are doing.

  25. Defender says:

    To all opponents of JW’s:

    If the JW’s are not God’s true people, then why are YOU not preaching “the real Bible-based teachings” about God’s kingdom and Jesus if you know it better? Instead of wasting all your energy, and only criticize the JW’s, YOU should give a good example how to live as true loving and peaceful Christians. YOU should go and preach the good news of God’s kingdom in all the inhabited earth (if YOU really know it better then the JW’s and also have the strength and love to do that?) since that is the command that Jesus gave! But YOU prefer to gossip about JW’s, have YOU ever thought about that?

    God’s people in the past (the Jews) made a lot of mistakes. JW’s and their governing body also are not perfect and they make mistakes, but I believe they sincerely do their best to serve Jehovah God, they improve their understanding of Scripture in time, where necessary, and that is a good thing… 😉

    • Julien says:

      That is an extremely indoctrinated self righteous argument. There is no such thing as a true religion. Never understood why a loving god would need to convert, subjugate, control, and even destroy people. Most people on this list have far more compassion as human beings than your jehovah. Your jehovah is an evil, wrathful, vengeful god. Throws more temper tantrums than a 3 year old. I was raised in this, i was a pioneer, baptized at 13, and i made a personal decision to leave at 18. I walked out into the street. Back then where where no blogs to turn to. Yet inspite of all the traumatic drama my family put me through i was able to become my own person, raise two magnificent daughters, get a college education, have a great life next to the man i love and was even able to help my terminally ill mother overcome her indoctrination against blood transfussions and even helped my in the closet homosexual brother not comit suicide and leave the religion. Now at 44 im happy i left at a young age. JW is an angry religion. A destructive religion of hate.

    • Susan says:

      How many of your JW live a double life? Appear to be good people, but tell lies all the time!

    • Ms Leslie in Texas says:

      Let me guess? A JW on a so-called “apostate site?” Maybe you should go self report what you are doing in your free time…..this is a big no-no Defender!! Are you counting time too?!! Gasp!!!
      And let there be no mistake, THIS IS NOT GOSSIP! It’s facts! Can you or your leaders defend ANYTHING with FACTS that this group throws up regarding the hypocrisy, mind control they impose? No……they quietly skulk back to their bible, with their same ol’, same ‘ol few scriptures of not “talking to us”, blah blah blah.

      Defender, you fail to realize we on here, the readers and the creators, have researched, delved into the true history of religions…..yours included, and on top of that may now be highly educated in regards to a career and how things REALLY WORK. So your judgement of “you gossipers” doesn’t effect us at all…..we just pity those who can’t read or think “outside the box” and truly learn and research on their own. Tsk, tsk…..

      • Winston Smith says:

        @Ms. Leslie,
        Defender is obviously a fully indoctrinated JW. He gives himself away when he says “YOU should give a good example how to live as true loving and peaceful Christians.”

        He doesn’t know any of us and yet he feels qualified to judge that none us are living as good examples of loving and peaceful Christians. He has obviously swallowed the Watchtower propaganda that all apostates are mentally diseased, self-centered, hedonistic individuals. Because that’s Christian way, right? Judge people you don’t know based on stereotypes set by others? (Sarcasm intended)

          did u click on their link? This is a def a JW, but I’m lost as to their involvement and WHY they keep beating the drum? Lol

          • Winston Smith says:

            I didn’t click the link because I recalled the specific discussion from earlier. I wonder if this guy reports his time spent chatting on apostate sites?

    • Freed Mason says:

      Dear Defender

      I am not an opponent of anyone, we all have FREE WILL to believe whatever we want to believe, this the first “Aha!” moment that I experienced when leaving this organisation.

      “If the JW’s are not God’s true people, then why are YOU not preaching “the real Bible-based teachings” about God’s kingdom and Jesus if you know it better?”

      I am not preaching the “real” Bible-based teachings about God’s kingdom and Jesus because it would be extremely presumptuous to believe that I or the organisation that I belong is the ONLY means that God would use to accomplish this. (A GB member admitted to this fact recently at the ARC in Australia.)

      I have my own personal opinions and a belief system, I do not need to make converts to my way of thinking. My actions should speak for themselves.

      Jesus did not load his followers down with rules and regulations, his load was light and appealed to a persons heart to motivate them to live a good life which they would be judged on by God not a man or an organisation.

      God never mentioned anywhere in the Bible that he would need a group of humans based in the US to INTERCEDE between Himself and mankind.

      This is not CRITICISM this is FACT.

      Please credit yourself and God with a bit more intelligence.

      Peace out friend.

    Dear Lloyd
    Do you know you get a mention in one of Steven Hassans books ? The new edition of combating cult mind control or Freedom of mind, Im so drunk right now I cant remember lol But its in one of them .
    Ive got a few ideas to attract attention here in Germany , all non violent and nice, well not nice for them but non aggressive. I need some a template with Watchtower NY letter heading if anyone could help me. I was never a JW but my ex is one , the WT kind off ruined everything , but my problem is so so small in comparison to what a lot of JWs went through and are going through .
    Its great to see someone like yourself and your team doing a great job .
    Happy hunting , I’m going to have another drink on you : )
