INTERVIEW: Millionaire Behind #HiddenCash Giveaways Reveals Himself
Real estate investor Jason Buzi has given away almost $15,000 in California in the past three weeks, and he plans to give away about $10,000 this weekend in New York City. If you're in the city, follow @Hiddencash on Twitter for clues on where the envelopes will be hidden.
The amounts have ranged from $40 to more than $100 per envelope.
Buzi says he wants to encourage people to "pay it forward" if they find the cash and can afford to do so. He says from social media, he and his team have seen some great examples of this.
"From the stories we've gotten, a lot of people are giving it to charity, giving it to people that are needier or buying lunch for their co-workers, things like that. Some of the stories we've gotten are people that found it that really do need the money, like this 14-year-old girl who found it who was crying tears of joy and sending it to her sick grandmother in Mexico," said Buzi, who wanted to remain anonymous but soon realized it wasn't going to be possible.
Buzi said a lot of his friends and family members quickly suspected it was him.
More giveaways are planned in Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas and Mexico City. Watch the full interview above.
