An anonymous donor is scattering envelopes of money around California’s Bay Area and posting clues to their location on Twitter.

The person behind the Twitter handle @HiddenCash says he’s a real estate millionaire between 35 and 45 years old. In what he calls an “anonymous social experiment for good,” he’s giving away as much as $1,000 per day, usually in $100 increments.

Here are a few of his cryptic clues:

When someone finds the hidden cash, the anonymous donor asks them to tweet a photo of themselves with their windfall.

The donor told People he would be willing to give away hundreds of thousands of dollars through these Twitter scavenger hunts.

“There is nothing wrong with donating money to a traditional charity, but I also wanted to donate in a more spontaneous way,” he said. “This is intended to put a smile on people’s faces.”

He tweeted Wednesday that his next stop is Los Angeles, and he told People he wants to “expand this to other cities.”
