SALEM, Ore. — An unknown man who identifies himself as “Benny” has been leaving $100 bills in various places in an Oregon town for years, Oregon Live reports.

From baby formula containers and cereal boxes to snug shelves, the man leaves the bills, only signed “Benny,” in random places.

“Whoever does this for people is truly amazing,” town resident Brittany Medina told Oregon Live. Medina found a $100 bill in a can of baby formula just before Christmas.

The man, only known by the now-famous nickname, is an homage to Benjamin Franklin.

In a series of Facebook posts by the page Humankind, people provide their stories behind the money and how they decided to spend it.
