    Hey everyone!!
    I hope that the remainder of your holiday was great and that you are enjoying your time back at school. I'd just like to thank you all
    for an amazing session, the enthusiasm shown was inspiring and I look forward to working with each of you throughout this year.
    As for the interior, there are many events coming up in your communities that I will be contacting each of you about. We are all so
    spread out, but I anticipate this working to our advantage since we have the opportunity to help out in so many areas. Also, I have
    sent out the donation hunt and I hope that you are well on your way with that fundraiser. The Thompson Okanagan Youth Parlia-
    ment is going quite well, it's going to be held in Kamloops April 29th to 31st; if you would like anymore information on it just let me
    know. I hope to see you all there :)

 Hello fellow Parliamentarians!
 I hope that everyone is getting back into the swing of things with school and work. It was great meeting all of you during session and
 meeting some really enthusiastic people from all across B.C. The first email digest has been sent out and I encourage all members to
 submit something to the digest. The digest is an opportunity to inform everyone in BCYP of events and activities occurring in the home-
 towns of all the members. Anyways I look forward to the rest of the BCYP year and encourage all members new and old to get involved in
 as many BCYP activities as possible. Until then, TTYL!

The PMR’s will be sent out soon as soon as Senate approves. Thank you letters have also been sent out, and if anyone wants to see them,

In other news, I’ve just recently been appointed Deputy Minister of Community Fundraising. As Deputy Minister of Community Fundraising,
I will be supporting the Edward in every aspect of Auction from solicitations, to corporations, night of, and ticket sales. My main responsi-

administrative duties for Auction such as printing tickets, running errands, compiling lists of volunteers, and delegating the volunteers to
the areas in need.
That’s it from me.

MAIL TO: TANYA.PERELYGIN@BCYP.ORG


 Hi Everyone!
 I hope you all had a fabulous New Year. Interested in the Purdy's Chocolate Bar Fundraiser to help with your donation total? Here is the additional
 information:
 The basic idea is to purchase Milk Chocolate Bars for $1.00 and subsequently sell Milk Chocolate Bars for $2.00 each. As there are not any liquid
 funds to make this happen, you should send to me a CHEQUE payable to PURDYS and then I will be able to provide the chocolate bars for you to
 sell.
 One carton of chocolate contains 20 bars. One case of chocolate bars has four cartons, or 80 chocolate bars. So, for example, if you decide to
 purchase one carton of Milk Chocolate Bars, you would let me know first, then send the CHEQUE for $20.00 payable to PURDYS to me. And I will
 subsequently provide you with the chocolate bars which you would sell to earn back what you paid for the chocolate and also make 100% profit
 towards your donation total!
 As there is a 6 carton purchase minimum for the whole group, let me know when you decide how many chocolates you would be willing to buy and
 then subsequently sell. This should be done ASAP as this is time sensitive.
 There will be a central location where you will be able to pick up your chocolates in the Lower Mainland, or if problems occur other arrangements
 can be made for the delivery of the chocolates to your person.
 For Island and Interior members, as there needs to be a minimum of six cases purchased for one delivery location, contact me if you have a large
 order. I can arrange a delivery of six cases to almost anywhere in BC, however, as that is such a large amount areas like Victoria and/or Kamloops
 can be used as central locations for pickup. But first members would have to order six cases collectively in those areas for that to work out.
 Hopefully now you have a more detailed picture of how exactly you will be able to raise money for your donation total. Here is an example of how
 selling a case of 80 chocolates can really help to raise money for your donation total:
 One purchases 80 chocolates at $1.00 each.
 One sells 80 chocolates at $2.00 each.
 One has gained back the money they spent on the chocolates as well as making a 100% profit.
 One now has $80.00 to go towards the $125.00 donation total.
 I hope that helped clear up any confusion concerning the math. If you have any questions or comments contact me immediately as this is time
 sensitive. Please reply as soon as possible if you are inter-
 ested in being involved. EXTENDED DEADLINE FOR RE-
 SPONSES: JANUARY 19th. Thanks!
