Cookie Brigade, PAX East 2011
Thanks to the wonderful people of PAX, and all the bakers and distributors who have helped make it happen, we have earned over
$9,600 for Child's Play
at this PAX! Thank you everyone, we look forward to seeing you at the next PAX!
Greetings! If you were looking for information regarding becoming a part of the Cookie Brigade for PAX 2011 (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!
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!
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 (EDIT: $30,000) completely from the handing out of cookies and the reception of donations from the incredible, amazing, and generous PAX community!

I WANT TO HELP IN THE BRIGADE!
If you're interested in
to people during PAX
* helping with Logistics
we can definitely use your help! Sign up at our website, http://cookie-brigade.com
if you wish to participate in the planning, baking, and/or distributing!
An important note: due to certain external pressures on the Brigade, we have to keep some of our more sensitive planning operations private. If you sign up at the Cookie Brigade website, an Administrator will contact you if you're not a known or frequently posting member of the Forums so that we can verify your identity. Thank you for understanding!
We have learned through the past few years at PAX that there is absolutely no end to the need for cookies and people to distribute them... so every dozen cookies that we get *will* be passed out, and bellies *will* be filled by the fruits of your labor... and Child's Play *will* be benefited by your efforts! Please help us by joining the Brigade!
I'M INVOLVED WITH A BAKERY/GROUP THAT WANTS TO HELP!
Have at least one person from said bakery/group join up on the forums and at our website (be it you, your boss, the owner, etc...) and have them get in touch with us! We can't provide much other than thanks to companies that wish to join forces with the Brigade, but if you are willing to put your bakery or company's resources toward helping Child's Play through the Cookie Brigade we'd love the help!
