Attention, local treasure-hunters: You have until Sunday to prepare yourselves for @hiddencash’s Chicago money drop.
One of the founders of the California-based Twitter phenomenon has said that on Sunday, $2,000 in cash will be distributed among about 20 envelopes and hidden in a yet-to-be-named Chicago park.
“People were just, like, from the get-go, ‘oh, this is cool, do this in my town,’” said Jason Buzi, a 43-year-old real estate investor in the San Francisco area. “I started reaching out, you know, where do we have friends that can help us? … Of course we wanted to do Chicago, and we had some contacts there.”
The @hiddencash Twitter account tweets hints to its more than 531,000 followers about where envelopes full of money are cached. The experiment started in the San Francisco area, then spread to Los Angeles. Over the next few days, @hiddencash will be hiding money in Las Vegas, New York, Houston and Mexico City in addition to Chicago–and, after that, in three European cities.
“We’re just trying to spread it around and see how people react in different places,” Buzi said. [more]
That’s the good news.
The bad news is that participants stand about 100 times better chance of being shot to death by a gangbanger in Chicago this weekend, than they do finding any money.
But have fun.
Rahm’s on the job.
Take it away, Chicago!
