A request for help….

The first time I visited my grandparents in the States, they gave me this cool collectors map to fill with the State quarters. I was quite into this for a whil, but then left it at home when I went to grad school and kind of forgot about the collection. I’d love to complete it now though, so this is a plea for help…

Dear American readers, could you please help me find the following quarters? If you have one or some of them and would be willing to mail them to me I would be ever so grateful, and would of course mail back a postcard from beautiful London or some little British bits (we make excellent confectionery…) in return. If you could help, please let me know via the comments or send me an email to linaire@yahoo.com.

So far I have 20, meaning there’s thirty to go. The quarters I require are:

1. Kentucky
2. Mississippi
3. Illinois
4. Missouri
5. Arkansas
6. Texas
7. Iowa
8. Wisconsin
9. Michigan
10. West Virginia
11. Florida
12. Minnesota
13. Kansas
14. Oregon
15. California
16. Nevada
17. Colorado
18. Nebraska
19. North Dakota
20. South Dakota
21. Washington
22. Montana
23. Idaho
24. Wyoming
25. Utah
26. Arizona
27. Oklahoma
28. Alaska
29. Hawaii
30. Alabama

Please do let me know if you could help – I would *love* to complete this collection!

    I've just come back from Florida with a pocketful of change – I'll have a look tomorrow and let you know if I've got a quarter for you (I'd do it now but I'm on nights at the moment).Also, just wanted to say thank you for reminding me about sparkpeople – I signed up over a year ago and then promptly forgot about it, then I was reading through your posts and thought "aha!". I'm determined to lose some weight after months of moping and moaning about my body, and the nutrition tracker thing is a godsend!
