Villagers will post notices on the bulletin board outside of Pierre's store in town. If someone wants help with something there will be a visible yellow exclamation point (!) there.

The quests range from gathering supplies (some need to be collected after the quest was accepted), killing monsters to catching a specific fish.
Once accepted you have typically 2 days to hand it in (it will say in the quest details, press cn_back and click on the quest in question).

Items requested by villagers this way will usually bring in a lot more then they normaly sell for.

After successfully completing 40 of these you will unlock the achievement.

There is another achievement for completing 10 requests:

Note: There are reports that the Help Wanted quests stop regenerating in the later years of gameplay, so you might want to complete as many as you can in the first couple of years.

Writing guides/solutions is about helping the community, a lot of time can go into writing some. Thats why i wish that if you dont find the guide helpful you will leave a comment and tell the author what you dont think is correct or what might be missing so we have a chance to improve it for the next person who reads it. This way you help the community as well. Thanks!

There is an easter egg "cheat" that is mentioned in some other achievement solutions that can be re-purposed for this.

Every item in the game is linked to a specific item ID #. Anytime that name is referenced by a character in game (whether it is your name, your baby's name, or an animal name), you automatically get those items. In this case, you can use this to your advantage to complete any Help Wanted quest you obtain.

Spreadsheet with Item IDs:

The potential limiting factor to this method would be money and progress. You need to have purchased either a coop or a barn in order to house animals and then have enough money to purchase a new animal anytime you need items you don't have. I've outlined the steps I followed below:

1. Obtain Help Wanted quest from board.
2. Head to Marnie's House [Top right area of the forest].
3. Look up the Item ID(s) of what you need for the quest. In this example I need a Fire Quartz (ID:82)
4. Speak to Marnie and purchase a chicken (or whatever animal suits your fancy) and make the name [Item ID#] (my example would be a chicken named [82]).
5. Upon completion of the purchase, Marnie will send the animal to your farm and say it's name, giving you the item(s) you needed.
6. Proceed to the person who needed the item and give it to them.
7. Rinse and repeat as many times as necessary.

If you need multiple items, you can string together multiple item IDs in the name.
i.e. [82][94][123]
