Welcome to Hidden Cash Nashville

 

Hidden Cash Nashville is not an organization.

 

I'm just one grateful individual whose business was wiped out in the 2010 Nashville flood, showing my gratitude to the community that was there for me when I needed it most.

 

Each week for 2014, I'm Paying It Forward by stashing an envelope of money with a different Nashville area business and sending out clues to find it by Twitter, Facebook, and Email.

The Hidden Cash Nashville Creator Reveals What Inspired Him to Pay Kindness Forward

 

A Little Cash Still Going a Long Way

 

 

 

 

 

 

FAQ's

 

Why Are You Doing This?

 

Three reasons, in no specific order:

 

1.   I lost nearly everything I'd worked my entire life for in the Nashville flood of 2010. I was moved by the kindness of strangers there to help me when I needed it most. So when I saw this Pay it Forward movement start in San Francisco in May 2014, I wanted to bring it to Nashville as a way of giving back to my community, and help other small business owners by sending them traffic.

 

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

 

3. I'm a Christian and a big fan of "The Purpose Driven Life". I 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 Chappell, pastor of Brentwood United Methodist Church said, "You cannot love God and not love people". 

 

 

How Do I Get the Clues?

Clues are sent out via Twitter, Facebook, and Email. Choose any of the following links to get them:

 

Twitter:            @HCashNashville

Facebook:      www.facebook.com/HiddenCashNashville

Email:             Click here.

 

 

How Can My Business Host One of Your Envelopes?

If you  would like to host an envelope, click here. There is no cost to you. I pay for it all, send out the clues, and send traffic to your business.

 

 

What Day of the Week is the Money Given Away?

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"?

Call me old fashioned, but 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.

Tried something different for this week's drop, but it was an epic fail. Was in Vegas to support my beautiful bride as she ran in the Las Vegas Marathon. Left this week's envelope in front of the dancing waters at the Bellagio hotel with a note inside asking whoever found it to send us their name and where they're from. The envelope quickly disappeared, but we never heard anything from the winner (which is why we chose to leave all the other envelopes with businesses instead of out in the public).
