We're happy to have you. Sounds like you'll fit right in. Make sure you know where HQ is, a lot of distributors deal with anxiety (me too!), PTSD, plain old introverts or what not and having a place to recoup that is semi-private is what keeps most of us going. For some reason PAX doesn't tend to follow the normal rules in this area since being in your 'tribe' lets down those barriers. Keep asking questions and know that once you get on-site and have an hour or so under your belt you'll be a lot more comfortable. If you want you can even get your feet wet distributing at the Pre-pax game night Thursday at the Sheraton. We run a cookie drop-off and if you let me know when you're coming I'll try to be on hand to distribute some with you to get started. If not we'll work it all out Friday morning. Good luck!

Hello! I'm Cat. Baking has been a hobby of me for awhile (mostly just cookies) and I often send them to work with my friends and they get raving reviews. This has inspired me to share more of them. I don't care about making a profit for myself because I just enjoy knowing I made something people like and it makes me feel useful. As somebody who struggles with depression and PTSD on a daily basis, knowing that I can make somebody smile or feel good for even a moment is very fulfilling for me. I'm pretty introverted while I'm assessing situations but can become incredibly outgoing and the "center of the party", if you will, around the right crowd. Unfortunately my social anxiety and resting bitch face can make me seem unfriendly but I assure you, I am not.
I am a Twitch streamer as well but I have only streamed about 10 times due to my anxiety, but 10 percent of my Twitch donations go to suicide prevention, and when I worked at GameWorks downtown I would always give my tips from the day to the first homeless person I crossed paths with on my way home. I look forward to being a part of this team as I have been an attendee since 2010 (even run a couple booths) and have seen the brigadiers around and always wanted to bake for them.
As Trump would say, I make the best cookies, my cookies are the greatest, I know everything about cookies, cookies, cookies, cookies.
I also do photography and would be more than happy to take pictures for the Brigade's social media accounts.

So they've asked for Hometown, Home airport, email address and phone number. If those of you who have already filled it out and add that to your info I'd appreciate it.

Howdy all,

My name is Lindsay, not to be confused with previous poster Lindsey.

I live in Perth, Western Australia. Pretty much the other side of the world to most Pax locations and 5 hours flight to the nearest. Not that it's stopped me from seeing a bunch of them. Boston in 2010, every Melbourne PAX and San Antonio just this year with my wife,  who some of you may know as Luckycharm from the pin trading.
That's where I got the idea to join Cookie Brigade,  in a roundabout way. We talked to Senno at Aus last year and the poor guy sounded run off his feet and wasn't able to enjoy the convention itself so much. So I figure I could afford to share the load, so to speak.

I look forward to collaborating with you all in the future.

I'm always happy to help work the booth, both me and Rob really enjoyed the opportunity at East.

I'd also be honored to do a hospital visit, I have some experience on that front as I use to do a lot of nursing home and hospital visits with the girl scouts and some volunteer groups. As Happendy said, it definitely has both its ups and downs, it can be emotionally trying but its always worth it. Some of my best childhood memories are at the nursing home and just seeing the light come into the eyes of someone who has so many stories to tell and is just overjoyed that someone is truly interested. Or seeing just a little bit of stress leave a mother's shoulders in a hospital when you sit down for 20 minutes and play Candyland with her other kid and she gets just a few brief moments to step away and take off the strong mask she keeps on for their sake.

Updating here instead of creating a new thread. We brought in $610 for Child's Play and another $180 for the brigade from the cookie tins. Thanks to Emi, Amloca and Sam for their help. I know many more of you are interested. If they keep this format we could bring more people on. Let me know if you are interested or want to take a stab at running it yourself!

I would love to be a part of this. I helped out at the East booth and it was such a great experience. If I can help in any way, I would be greatly honored.

My boyfriend and I would absolutely love to help if there are opportunities in CT or NY. Understood if the opportunity would be limited to 1 person.

You know I am down for this. I helped out at the booth before they pulled CB into it, and I'd love to do it again. I also used to work at Seattle Children's and I gotta tell you that on the other side of the stick, doing a video call with a mommy who's finally able to get to hold her own child to the rest of her family is like the best feeling ever. There's definitely ups and downs.

Put me down, I'm in the Seattle area, and I can travel anywhere that Alaska Airlines can take me. My email is [email protected]

That said, while I can talk Child's Play and Cookie Brigade all day, I haven't been as active as of recent. If someone else who's been more active recently wants to go, I wouldn't mind letting them have that experience.

Here be my updated info
