Need Some Pesos?

Hey, are there any MeFites planning a trip to Mexico soon? I just found a few pesos while cleaning up (not much, only 96), and I'd much rather give them to someone than exchange them for what's probably barely enough to buy a cup of coffee.

How much is the postage to mail them?

Response by poster: It depends on where I send it, I guess. But I can't imagine it being much more than a buck; I'll just run the thing through the postage machine anyhow.

FYI... 96 Mexican Pesos ~ $8.75 USD right now, I beleive...

I'm going to Mexico in a few weeks, but I'm in the UK and it's probably not worth sending 96 pesos across the atlantic. I could post them back to you when I get back to the UK if I don't spend them.

or, you could go to the bank and get lots more pesos to send me so it would make the postage worthwhile :)

Would it be possible to mail them to a Mexican charity? I have no idea if there'd be issues with cash donations or not.

I'm going to Rocky Point next month, but they do everything in dollars there so I'm sure someone else needs them more than I do.

Response by poster: The charity idea is swell, actually. If something can't be worked out, then I'll probably just send it there.

Best answer: UNICEF's Change for Good is a charity that explicitly accepts leftover foreign currency.

Response by poster: Hey, thanks, dhartung. That seems like the ideal solution.
