A mysterious benefactor has been leaving cash hidden all over San Francisco. He or she is also inviting strangers to find it via a series of clues. Under the Twitter handle of @HiddenCash, the benefactor has left money under chairs and benches in public parks, on stairways -- even a unisex bathroom.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Described as "an anonymous social experiment for good," the benefactor leaves hints by sharing a photo of the drop-off spot, as well as written clue.
@HiddenCash shared this photo with the message 'Why not use this to tip your @YogaToThePeople teacher this morning? (Find it under the key box)' on Friday.
"Could you and 25 of your friends use a @Sightglass Coffee? Look in the abandoned phone box next door," one tweet said, along with a photo of a $100 bill.
"New drop: look under me :)" said another, which appeared to show a park bench.
@HiddenCash captioned this photo 'New drop: Look under me :)' on Friday.
The mystery person @HiddenCash has shared uploads of multiple $20 bills being tucked away for curious scavengers, as well as $50 and $100 amounts.
@HiddenCash said he or she left a couple of $20 bills to 'feed' this meter on Friday.
@HiddenCash currently has over 6,500 followers waiting for the next tip.
The anonymous donor revealed that he or she became rich through real estate.
"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 wrote to The Bold Italic. "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."
@HiddenCash wrote 'New Drop: Popular Chinese place near Market/Kearny in unisex bathroom #payitforward & drop couple 20s to next person' on Friday.
@HiddenCash said he or she will leave money "once or twice a week," the site says.
"This is my way of giving back to the community and also having fun," the anonymous person says. "[I] was just kicking around ideas with a friend yesterday and we decided to start hiding a bunch of cash in different places around the city.'"
"The bigger idea is just to give back, both financially and a sense of fun to the community that has made me wealthy."
