PASS THE BASKET AND SEND A MESSAGE

Click donate button above to contribute any of the following amounts with corresponding meaning to send Rev. Angela Smith a message determined by value of contribution respective to meaning shown below.  And, since this is a "Pass The Basket" opportunity, this page houses mystery bonus blessing opportunities for contributors who don't disclaim their blessing and also upon request without donating because everyone deserves a mystery bonus blessing if they ask for it or otherwise have it coming.  Priest John Ball opposed tithing and called for an end to tithes to the Catholic Church in the 14th century.  But, if you support the church (including mission) or just wish to send Rev. Angela Smith a message with a donation that will be acknowledged including amount publicly at https://www.cope.church/fellowship.htm so everyone knows your opinion based on the value of your donation, here's how donations will be interpreted [Special Note: Donations for less than $1 cannot be contributed online and must be received in person or mailed to: COPE/Rev. Angela Smith (payable to either, but include COPE Donation in memo field if payable to Rev. Smith), 126 SW 148th St, Ste C100-422, Seattle, WA 98166-1984.  All donations are appreciated and help us practice and promote truth and virtue including assisting victims of crimes/torts and consumer advocacy through church and mission services]:

SUGGESTED GIFT AMOUNT/MESSAGE & MEANING MEANING
$609 only once/$1.50 monthly in perpetuity (Bezos/Amazon Matching Gifts) In 2020, Jeff Bezos is estimated to have a net economic worth of $200 billion.  Taking what in some respects Rev. Smith sees as an unreasonable notion of what social equality means and symbolically divvying up his wealth equally and evenly to every individual American right now (2020) would equate to approximately $609 per person if Mr. Bezos were to do that so we can all have an equal $609 share of Mr. Bezos' wealth including Bezos.  If you have argued Bezos should do that in any way (including by being forced to hand it over to the government to fund wars or the like) then lead by example with your gift to the church.  Or, you can actually match Amazon's monthly reciprocity in perpetuity by setting your gift of $1.50 to be a recurring monthly gift to COPE/HEAL Mission.  Earmark: Church Supplies via Amazon (which will also help fund animal welfare an essential component of the mission objectives.) [Yes, this church supports capitalism and charitable giving which is often complimentary and not at odds with each other.  Here's your bonus: And, if you donate $609 as a one time thing you can tell any and all future charities this "I gave the equivalent of one American's entire arguable equitable share of Jeff Bezos' amassed wealth to my church and/or favorite charity.  That's as generous as I can afford to be in this life.  God bless and good luck.  My church does run a mission and you can contact rev@cope.church for more info."  ]
$0 + Feedback Res Ipsa Loquitur: The Feedback will speak for itself as to meaning.
$1.00/$0.02* (I Hate HEAL/COPE Contribution) I hate HEAL Mission and the Church Of Philosophical Exploration.  I wish they didn't exist.  And, I'll be surprised if I get recognition for my "proverbial 2 cents" on the "Fellowship" page.  Probably for "followers" only.  [COPE Note: All donors will be thanked, including haters, on the Fellowship page and qualify for any active bonus blessing opportunities.] Earmark: COPE Conversion Program/HEAL Mission
$662,500/$0.38   (Poe/Foster Genius Contribution) Edgar Allan Poe and the Poe Genius Contribution is split and #TaoFu as an option featured here.  The higher amount is based on the highest amount one of his original publications sold at auction for by Christie's.  And, the lower amount is the money Stephen Foster had at the time of his death which is featured on the same information page showing Poe died in utter poverty here.  This particular donation sends the message that you support social equality and recognize genius regardless of economic position.  Earmark: Venue and/or Mobile Church Service Accessibility/Availability
$25.00/$0.25  (#TaoFu Joker/#TaoFu Harvey Dent Contribution) I'm a fan of the #TaoFu character shorts/morality plays mostly on Twitter but also featured on the church site.  #TaoFu I say: "I understand why #TaoFu Harvey Dent is $0.25, but, why $25 for #TaoFu Joker?"  #TaoFu Joker says: "Obviously, everyone knows I'm worth 100 Harvey Dents at the very least.  It's an honor to be so recognized and valued."  #TaoFu George Floyd says: "Probably counterfeit, shit.  Why you talkin' in front of a prosecutor, man?"  #TaoFu Harvey Dent says: "I'm retired from the D.A.'s office, no worries.  Heads or Tails."  #TaoFu Derek Chauvin says: "No comment." Earmark: #TaoFu Short and Morality Play Development and Execution
$51.50  (Basket Case Contribution) Rev. Angela Smith is crazy and/or should be institutionalized.  Earmark: Petty Cash 
$420/$4.20  (Are You High Or Am I Contribution) #TaoFu is cool.  I dig Wycliffites.  Earmark: More Youtube Videos.
$3,412.75/$9.35 (James Dean Forever Contribution) I'm a fan of James Dean too.  I know he was a member of the Friends' Church/Quakers.  When he started out as a Production Assistant/equivalent behind the scenes at the game show "Beat the Clock", he likely earned $9.35/day.  I respect his work ethic and COPE's.  Earmark: Virtual Cemetery Management and Maintenance.
$31.48 (Pink Floyd "The Wall" Contribution) I expressly wish for my gift of $31.48 (reported value of the vinyl album "The Wall" by Pink Floyd on 8/20/20 via Amazon) to go towards construction and maintenance of the church, both virtual and material.  #AnotherBrickInTheWall  Earmark: Church Building Fund (Virtual and Material)
$456.25  (Aficionado Contribution) I'm an in-kind contributor and into reverse tithing to help support the art of the church in a #TaoFu way.  (I'm donating anonymously or not?  Am I an official Honorary Proselytizer?) Earmark: Namaste Reciprocity
$20.25/$0.60 (Wycliffite Contribution) In 14th century England, the average annual salary or wages of one adult man was $0.60 which is the equivalent of $20.25 today.  And, in 14th century England those wages were taxed at roughly 30% leaving one adult man (even if providing for spouse and children) with $0.40 in the 14th century to cover all living expenses at the time which would be $13.50 today. 

Actual unemployment rate in US in 2016: 17.77%.  Actual unemployment rate in US in 2019: 19.19%

Without a written message or direct communication as to meaning, my donation is the mystery.  Rev. Angela Smith can meditate on that.  No Earmark.
