If you’re a little down on your luck in the dollar department, a few clues and a generous donor could be your lucky out.

After an anonymous millionaire under the Twitter handle @HiddenCash began posting clues to hidden money in San Francisco, Calif., followers found money in envelopes ranging from $10 to $210.

And now, the generous gent is bringing the scavenger hunt to Kansas and Missouri.

No clues have been posted for Missouri, but the millionaire wasted no time sending people searching in Kansas Thursday.

The first drop: Goodland, Kan., where pictures of a park were tweeted for clues.

Drops were also made in Wichita, where one person found $5 and a group found $200 in trash near a restaurant.

On Friday, a drop was made in Emporia.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Good morning all! WHO WANTS FREE MONEY!? EMPORIA KANSAS? Its a beautiful day for a walk in the park :) <a href="http://t.co/lfOYaTLtVL">pic.twitter.com/lfOYaTLtVL</a></p>&mdash; Hidden Cash KS (@HiddenCashKS) <a href="https://twitter.com/HiddenCashKS/statuses/472366297200615425">May 30, 2014</a></blockquote>

Mr. Hidden Cash apparently makes his money from real estate and told the San Francisco Chronicle the cash drops are a “social experiment for good” and that he has no plans of stopping.
