FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – The hidden cash craze that’s sweeping the country is coming to the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Hidden envelopes full of free cash will be stashed around North Texas soon, according to a new Twitter account.

@HiddenCashDFW posted its first tweet around 2 a.m. Friday morning:

After about six hours of taking Twitter votes, @HiddenCashDFW announced Dallas had won. Then asked for suggestions on where in Dallas to hide the money.

An anonymous, wealthy donor is behind the original hidden cash effort, which started in California.

However, Stacey Monroe, the person behind Hidden Cash DFW isn’t quite as secretive.

Stacey Monroe is 19 years old, unemployed and putting her money behind the project.

“I guess you could say you know how are you giving this money if you are unemployed? But I think it’s a good way to tell the community when you feel like you have a little extra money it’s good so you encourage others to give to others,” she said.

Stacey is putting 140 bucks into the project and already has two businesses on board who she says will also donate money.

Stacey says the envelopes will have anywhere from 20 to 60 dollars each, and based on Twitter votes, the first one will be hidden in Victory Park in Dallas.

Stacey plans to hide it and start tweeting clues on Monday.
