If you were looking for information regarding becoming a part of the Cookie Brigade for PAX South 2017 or you're just curious about what we're all about then you're in the right place. We're gearing up for another PAX and looking forward to adding to our lifetime total of $303,000 raised for Child's Play!If you're not already registered on the Cookie Brigade website please do so ASAP! Information on how to join the PAX South 2017 group will be coming soon!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 and shipped 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 but greatly appreciated!
And it's very convenient to get a cookie and give a donation at the same time.
Starting in 2007, 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 $300,000 mostly by the handing out of cookies and the reception of donations from the incredible, amazing, and generous PAX community! In 2016 alone we raised over $70,000 for Child's Play! Woooooot! Thank you everyone for your generous donations; you have helped an awesome cause!WHERE CAN I FIND OUT MORE?

An important note: due to certain external pressures on the Brigade we have to keep some of our more sensitive planning operations private.

Thank you for your understanding!BASIC BRIGADE GUIDELINES
- We give out cookies, we do not sell cookies! We do happily pass all donations along to Child's Play, so feel free to give us donations if you want.
- Keep it PG and family friendly. We love to give cookies out to kids and as such we ask all brigadiers to remain family friendly with their cookies (sorry no dickerdoodles) and distributing activities!
- Have fun and enjoy PAX!
This year I'm driving down so I'm not as limited by luggage space too.
Edit: But handing out cookies was fun. Everybody loves seeing a cookie bearer.
I think they tend to prefer candies. RARE candies.
Hahahahahaha! Then it's official, the Pokemon Trainers will have cookies!!!
Cosplayers make great distributors! You're already drawing attention to yourself, why not give out cookies at the same time?
What sort of logistical issues? If your face is covered or you don't have a free hand, we can pair you with someone else to help.
Bonus points if you're cosplaying as No Face from Spirited Away. Holding out cookies going "Ah. Ah."
THIS ONE GIRL...
Time to t-t-t-t-trade! ⭐️http://www.pinnypals.com/pals/Renfamous⭐️
This is genius....... but I'm already at PAX, so I can't make it happen. That being said,I will be in the pokemon area with a large distribution inventory all weekend need a cookie? Come visit gym leader Lloye!
Another mention... when will someone be in cookie hq tmrw? I'll want to stock up and hit the lines at 8am at the latest.
We wound up with about 15 distributors and plenty of cookies (even a few leftover).
Glad I could be a part of it! Thats a new record, right?
Glad you liked the anise cookies! I ended up making way too many of them.
Sure is! We made $10k in 2015 and $8k in 2016.
