6yr old wanting to raise funds for other needy children

My 6yr old daughter would like to raise money to buy a playground for a local Village we visited in Fiji. She noticed that the children did not have one and asked what we could do. Not wanting to squash the ideas of this young humanitarian, we are looking at ideas to following this through. Any help on where to start would be greatly appreciated

My son felt the same way after visiting a Heifer International farm in Massachusetts. Heifer Int'l is an awesome charity that helps people help themselves and eventually the whole village or town. The farm we visited is to raise awareness for what they do.

After our visit, we started bake sales at our church that coincided with monthly breakfasts. He made the signs, helped bake, and stayed the 3 hours once a month hawking the stuff. We made over $800. Not much, but more than we started with. We also started a Read to Feed program and my two boys raised $600 the first year.
