Hidden Money Comes to TexasDALLAS — Are you a little cash-strapped these days? The solution could be as simple as following your Twitter page. The cash-craze, where random strangers hide money for others to find, has made its way to North Texas.

The trend started in San Francisco, when an unidentified  donor, selected a specific location in the city, and tweeted clues to find the money.

On Friday, news of hidden cash coming to Dallas-Fort Worth created a frenzy on social media.

This time, the gracious donor revealed herself and her reason behind her generosity.

“I was inspired by what happened in California,” donor Stacey Monroe said. Monroe said what started with one tweet, soliciting suggestions from the public as to where to hide the cash, has turned into a an unexpected windfall of interest.

Monroe is just 19-years old and unemployed. She said this is her way of giving back to the community. Now, other small business are pitching in and donating dough.

Envelopes containing bills of $20 or more, will be planted in a yet disclosed area of Dallas.

You can track down the treasure by following @hiddencashdfw on Twitter. Monroe said the drops will happen sometime early next week, either in Victory Park or the Arts District.
