Anonymous cash drops of $20 and $100 bills first appeared last week in San Francisco. Now it's inspired people in D.C., New Orleans and Dallas to also leave envelopes of cash around their cities.

The San Francisco donor tweets clues at @HiddenCash and calls the cash giveaways a "social experiment for good." The account, created May 23, has more than 344,000 followers.

@IHidtheCash in Washington, D.C., and @HiddenCash NOLA in NOLA both say in their Twitter profiles they were inspired by the San Francisco donor. Both accounts were created on May 28.

"I just want to see people :) Follow clues to find hidden cash. Do good with the money!" according to @IHidtheCash's Twitter profile.

In New Orleans, @HiddenCash_NOLA wrote, "God is everywhere!"

In Texas, @HiddenCashDFW was created on Friday. It asks local businesses to "sponsor" an envelope with cash or a gift card.

It's unclear where @HiddenCashDFW will target first. "Dallas, Mesquite, Fort Worth, Arlington or where?" it said in one tweet.

Not much known is about the San Francisco donor, except he or she made a lot of money in real estate.

In San Francisco, cash has been found in parking lots, at bus stops and even in trees. @HiddenCash has also made drops in Los Angeles and San Jose.

The drops will continue once or twice a week "with no end in sight," @HiddenCash told Bold Italic.
