Cookie BrigadeWhat is the Cookie Brigade?

What started in 2007 as two people randomly handing out cookies to people waiting in lines at the Penny Arcade Expo has become a unstoppable force for good! Brigadiers bake cookies and other tasty treats and give them out for free, while handing out tasty treats the Brigadiers accept donations to Child’s Play.

Since 2007 we’ve raised more than $395,412 for Child’s Play.
