Who Wants Free Money?

Have you heard about the real estate investor traveling the world to give away money to lucky scavengers?

He started his game by hiding envelopes of cash around San Francisco and tweeting clues about their locations under his Twitter handle @HiddenCash. Whoever finds the cash gets to keep it. Simple as that.

Originally, the benefactor was anonymous. But we now know his name is Jason Buzi, he’s a real estate investor from California, and he’s actually just one member of a team of people operating the Twitter handle @HiddenCash.

USA Today reports that Buzi found himself with millions of dollars on his hands, and decided he wanted to give a lot of the money away.

Some of it is going to charity, but he says he also wants to have fun with it – so he’s hiding envelopes of $20 and $100 around the world. He’s starting off in larger cities, but plans to visit smaller towns as well. He hopes the game will bring people together and encourage people to give back.  Is it working?


Buzi and his team started out in San Francisco, then expanded the giveaways to cities including New York, Houston, Las Vegas, and Chicago. He even extended his reach to Mexico. Some of the latest hints are that Hidden Cash is going to Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Europe.

If you use Twitter, you can follow @HiddenCash for clues about upcoming cash drops. Here’s one such clue:

    Gee, I wonder if he comes to Canada? Our dollar is quite low and it would not cost him very much at all.

    Now that’s my kind of game. Mr. Buzi is a very generous man. There are so many who would benefit from this. I hope those who need it the most will be the ones who find the hidden treasure. 🙂
