The mysterious and generous philanthropist who goes by the Twitter name @HiddenCash took his social media-driven scavenger hunt to San Jose, California.
For about a week now, HiddenCash has been hiding money for his Twitter followers to find. Wednesday, HiddenCash left his first clue on Twitter, "First even San Jose drop: across from where these sea creatures play, a dog pees in the fall," just before 9 a.m. Alex Doxie, the winner of the $135, told NBC Bay Area, "I just had a hunch. It was fun."
Then at 9:02 a.m., HiddenCash tweeted his second clue: "New SJ drop: behind a tree, under a leaf, across from fast dogs' station. Tweet when you find it." According to NBC Bay Area, the tweets sent those folks looking from some free cash scrambling. About 45 minutes later, a radio station employee found $140.
HiddenCash's creator says his giveaways are a "social experiment for good." HiddenCash tweeted that money drops should be found in Los Angeles this weekend and maybe New York City next month.
