Send money digitally

• Decide how much money you’ll give away.

• Put an announcement on social media inviting people to send you their digital wallet payment details (Venmo, PayPal, etc.), explaining that you will send the first X number of people to comment some money, and ask them to pass half on to someone else.

• Here is a sample text you can use or adapt: It’s #FreeMoneyDay! I’ll send $2 to the first 20 people to DM me their Venmo username or PayPal email. The idea behind Free Money Day is to give two bills or coins to a complete stranger with the request that they pass half on to someone else. 

• Remember to use the #FreeMoneyDay hashtag and tag us on Facebook and Twitter.

• Send out the money to those who contact you, until you reach your set amount.

• Once enough people have contacted you, edit or comment on your original post to say that the offer has ended.

• Feel free to engage with people who are interested in discussing more, and share the website:


Don’t forget to share your stories, photos, and videos!

• Let us know how much money you gave away and what happened – how long did it take before someone asked what it was all about? How were the overall reactions? What did people want to discuss, if anything?

• Tweet about the event using the hashtag #freemoneyday and link to us at @freemoneyday; post a story to your Facebook profile and tag the Free Money Day Facebook page (‘like’ the page first, then use the ‘@’ sign to tag from a drop down list); write a blog post.

• Follow up with media and send through any clippings or links for us to post on our Free Money Day media page.

• Edit your films, share them with us, and post your photos to the the Free Money Day Flickr account.
