      • Find out how to be a safe cookie seller.
        • Don’t go into a stranger’s house.
        • Don’t go up to a parked car.
        • Make sure you always sell cookies with a buddy and an adult, such as a parent, guardian or leader, supervising.
        • Don’t criss-cross the road. Sell on one side of the street, cross where it is safe and sell on the other.
        • Look both ways when crossing the street.
        • Never sell to people in cars.
        • Never carry large amounts of money. Return home frequently to deposit money collected.
        • Carry money in cookie dough envelopes, not in your pockets.
        • Only give your first name and never your address or phone number when selling.
        • Sell only in neighbourhoods and areas familiar to you.
        • Make sure you know the name and phone number of someone to call in case of an emergency.
        • If you must sell when it is dark, wear bright colours and carry a flashlight. If you can, sell door-to-door during daylight hours only.
