My junior D is working on her Girl Scout Gold Award and has hit a roadblock with her service project. Originally she was going to help with donation drive for our local school system - donate your old band/orchestra instruments to those kids who can't afford them. Unfortunately, her mentor for this project can no longer help out.
She could still do something like the instrument drive, but she's now reevaluating her plans. (Since she really hasn't started the service project, there's still time to change directions.) She's like to do something music-related, just not performance-related (no singing or playing.)
Any suggestions from Scout parents out there? (..or from any parents, for that matter.) She's more the organizer-type, not so much the performer-type. For example, she's thought about organizing a concert of local rock bands, with the proceeds from admission going towards musical instruments for preschools. (Actually, with the way the Gold Award is set up, she may not be able to raise money per se, but she could charge people a kazoo to get into the show....or something like that.)
