An Anonymous Rich Person is Hiding Money all Over California

If you live in the California area – it may be time to go hunting for some cash. An anonymous person is hiding money around the city, and tweeting hints about the location under the Twitter handle “Hidden Cash.” It started in San Francisco, then San Jose, and now it looks like he or she is moving on to Los Angeles.

Every time money is hidden, a tweet goes out on @HiddenCash with hints. This person also asks the people who find it to share a photo of their discovery.

“I am OK with giving out at least $1000 a day for the foreseeable future. It will not affect my finances significantly,” he or she wrote in an email. “We are planning to add more cities, starting with LA next weekend, and NYC shortly afterwards.”

The donor said they “want to start a nationwide movement” around this anonymous charitable giving.

Bold Italic, which also interviewed to the man or woman behind this project, said that this person is big in the real estate world and wants to give back tho the community – a community with the largest wealth gap in the United States.

“I’ve made millions of dollars the last few years, more than I ever imagined, and yet many friends of mine, and people who work for me, cannot afford to buy a modest home in the Bay Area,” the person told the Bold Italic. “This has caused me quite a bit of reflection. I am determined to give away some of the money I make, and in addition to charity, to do it in fun, creative ways like this.”
