Greetings! If you were looking for information regarding becoming a part of the Cookie Brigade for PAX 2012 (or just want to know what it's all about) you came to the right place!
Stay tuned here for updates and information as it develops!
8/9/12 - WE MADE OUR GOAL IN JUST TWO DAYS!!
Thanks everybody! Because of you, we made our goal of $225, and now will have awesome cards and buttons to distribute along with the cookies, for buttoneering and to spread the word about Child's Play and what the Brigade does.
8/7/12 - WePay Account Available for Donations to cover operating costs
There is now a WePay account for anyone who wants to help defray the costs of operating the Cookie Brigade. This is not donation money for Child's Play
but instead helps to defray the costs of Brigade expenses like buttons, cards, bingo prizes, etc... Basically all the little operational things that keep the Brigade chugging along. Consider a donation!
7/19/12 - Liasons Positions Posted to the CB Website
Liasons needed! Check the Brigade website for details. If you haven't signed up
to be a Brigadier yet, well, WHY THE HELL NOT!?
7/12/12 - Cookie Brigade Panel
That's right, an entire panel about the Cookie Brigade. See the Confirmed Panel Thread
for details. There will be cookies.
7/12/12 - Signups
If you've signed up to be part of the Brigade and have been waiting to be approved, please check your PM inbox. Everyone has been pretty busy during the last few weeks and approvals are starting to go out now.
WHO WE ARE:
The Cookie Brigade is a ragtag group of Penny Arcade Forumers who have assembled since PAX 2007 to provide our fellow gamers with delicious baked goods! Cookies are baked by forumers, brought from afar by forumers, and distributed by forumers!
The Cookie Brigade does not sell cookies. We give cookies away for free.
Brigadiers also accept donations to Child's Play, which are entirely voluntary and greatly appreciated!
It's very convenient to get a cookie and give a donation at the same time.
Starting in 2008, the Cookie Brigade began a mission to give these cookies in exchange for donations to Child's Play, the charity started by Mike and Jerry that provides entertainment to kids in children's hospitals. Since starting on this mission, the Cookie Brigade has raised over $56,000 completely from the handing out of cookies and the reception of donations from the incredible, amazing, and generous PAX community! Last PAX alone we raised over $14,000 for Child's Play! Woooooot! Thank you everyone for your generous donations, you have helped an awesome cause!
