A millionaire with cash to burn is paying it forward in a big way: by hiding envelopes stuffed with $100 across the Bay Area for strangers to find.
The anonymous man told ABC News he’s a successful real estate investor who just wanted to give back. “I wanted to do something fun for the city of San Francisco, something that would get people excited. “The mystery man, who posts clues about his cash drops on Twitter under the handle @HiddenCash, says he plans to expand to New York and Los Angeles soon. He says he has already given away nearly $4,000 since Thursday night. Gleeful followers post photos on social media of the envelopes they find, sometimes taped to ATMs, parking meters or under benches.Richard Rodriguez and his partner raced to a street in San Francisco’s Mission district Sunday seconds after the Twitter account gave a hint the cash would be hidden on a parking meter there. It’s not a lot of money. It’s not going to change your life. But the camaraderie it brings out in people is a lot of fun.”
