A local area man is hiding $20 bills across the Capital Region to make people happy. The man started the initiative in 2014 and is hiding a $20 bill in different places around the Capital Region all month long.

Here is is what he posted :

I’m not a psychiatrist or attorney like they are (were?) but how many letters after your name do you need to hand out cash?

My goal for this project is two-fold:

1) To have fun.

What could be more fun than playing hide and go seek with cash?
It makes people happy too.

2) To support local businesses who, I hope, will benefit from the $20s being left around.

As a long time supporter of local businesses (518BirthdayClub.com) I think it’s important to keep the money local, when you can.
