The Mystery Money Buffalo Twitter account says they will give away $1,000 in one month.
The idea of a scavenger hunt to find hidden treasure began with a California real estate developer who hid a cash-stuffed envelope in San Francisco in an effort, he said, to give back to the community that made him wealthy.
Using the Twitter handle HiddenCash he began leaving envelopes containing $100 bills around San Francisco on Friday. TheTwitter persona directed people to envelopes with $50 and $100 inside them.
The original California cash-dropper says his giveaways are a "social experiment for good.Since then, the idea has sprouted among a handful of U.S. cities. By the midle of last week, a similar effort called HiddenCashCO had popped up in Boulder. An anonymous group hid envelopes containing $40 cash and tweeted clues to their locations.
