An Anonymous Rich Person Is Hiding Money All Around San Francisco

The Huffington Post  | by  Kevin Short
Posted: Updated: 

If you live in San Francisco, be on the lookout for some mysterious white envelopes -- they may contain $100 bills.

An anonymous person is going around the city, dropping off sums of money in a project called "Hidden Cash," and tweeting hints about the locations.

The person behind Hidden Cash told The Bold Italic that they are a real estate magnate, and the purpose of this creative scavenger hunt is to give back "to the community that has made me wealthy."

“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 said. “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.”

After each money drop, a tweet goes out from @HiddenCash with hints about the location of the envelope. @HiddenCash also requests that the lucky recipients tweet photos of their discovery.

The anonymous donor told the Bold Italic that the cash deposits are a "social experiment," and said they're worried about staggering wealth inequality in the city. (San Francisco has the largest wealth gap of any city in the country.) They said said they'll continue hiding money once or twice per week "with no end in sight," and that the project may be expanded to Oakland and San Jose.

It will probably take more than a few cash-stuffed envelopes to address thebroader causes of the wealth gap that the person behind @HiddenCash is concerned about. Nevertheless, it's a clever, generous idea and is definitely brightening the days of some lucky San Francisco residents.

Nice gesture.
I like the fact that it being done anonymously. Let's hope this generosity spreads to other cities as well.
