Twitter treasure hunting

Remember Masquerade, the 1979 childrens' book by Kit Williams that gave clues to the whereabouts of a jewelled hare buried somewhere in England?

Something similar is happening on Twitter, with people hiding envelopes of cash, and tweeting clues to enable them to be found.

It's described by the annonymous person behind the British version as "fun for me, and it helps people out, so it's a win-win".

What would you do with the money if you found one of the envelopes?


  1. When the children were small, the rule was that any money found in the street went into the next charity box [small change that is - if it was a larger amount, then it was handed in to the Police Station] If I found one of these envelopes...I don't know [probably buy Bob some new slippers to replace the awful ones he is wearing right now!]

  2. The money would go straight into my savings account to buy equipment needed for tanzania :)
