The hidden money social media craze has spread to Kansas.

An account has been created on Twitter called "Hidden Cash Kansas".  Within hours, the account had already chalked up hundreds of followers.

The group says they'll be randomly placing money around the state, then Tweeting clues about where to find it.

As of noon on Thursday, they hadn't actually hidden any cash.

Groups like this have been popping up across the country. They were inspired by an anonymous donor in California who began hiding cash around San Francisco as a social experiment for good.


The first person in Kansas to find the hidden cash is Evan Peter, a freshman at Goodland High School. He found $10 at the local park hidden in rocks by a trash can.

"I think it's great. It was nice for me to get out of the house for the day and look for some money."
