Welcome to Hidden Cash Nashville

Part of the National Social Experiment in Paying It Forward

 

 

 

 

Each week for one year, I'm stashing a red envelope containing between $20 and $200, with a different Nashville area business.

 

At a designated time, clues are sent out via Twitter, Facebook, and Email.

 

The first person to show up and say "May I Have the Envelope, Please?" wins.

FAQ's

 

Why Are You Doing This?

 

1. I'm a Christian and a big fan of "The Purpose Driven Life". I strongly believe Rick Warren when he wrote in that book that the purpose of my life is to serve God, and this is best done by serving others. As Dr. Davis Chapel, pastor of Brentwood United Methodist Church here in Nashville said, "You cannot love God and not love people". This is a small way of serving.

 

2.   The 2010 Nashville flood wiped out my business. I was so moved by the kindness of strangers offering to help that when I saw this Pay it Forward movement sweeping the country in May 2014, I wanted to bring it to Nashville as a way of giving back by getting free publicity and extra foot traffic for other small business owners.

 

3. I see nothing but bad news in the news. This was a way to bring something positive to the headlines for a change.

 

 

How Can My Business Host One of Your Envelopes?

If you have a business and would like to host an envelope, click here. There is no cost to you.

 

 

Who Pays for It?

I do. Every penny comes out of my pocket. There are no sponsors, and there is no cost to the businesses where we stash the envelopes.

 

 

 

What Day of the Week Are Envelopes Announced?

No specific day. I work a full time job just like most people, so it's just whenever I can fit it into my schedule.

What's the Significance of Saying "May I Have the Envelope, Please"?

I'm old fashioned and still believe in saying things like "Please" and "Thank You".

 

 

Are There Others?

Yes. It began in San Francisco on May 23, 2014 at www.twitter.com/hiddencash and went global in less than a week. The first in Tennessee was www.twitter.com/HiddenCashTN . There is also one in Chattanooga  (www.twitter.com/HiddenCashChatt) and one in Memphis (www.twitter.com/MEMCash)
