Plant some flowers in your community (Interest Badge Brownie Green Fingers Option 1)
Donate money to the World Thinking Day Fund which supports projects to help Guides and Scouts around the world.

Note for Leaders
The most important thing you have to do as a Leader is organise the project. It will be your job to locate an organisation and find out what its needs are. This needs to be done one or two months before you embark on the community service project, as you will have to let the girls' parents know what you will be doing.
