Mystery donations of thousands of dollars have been turning up across Germany, sparking talk of a new Robin Hood.
A total of 190,000 euros have been left around the Lower Saxony city of Braunschweig, stuffed into letterboxes and behind church hymn books.
One donation, of 10,000 euros ($12,400) in 500-euro notes, was found stuffed into an envelope and left under a doormat at a local hospice.
"I say it's maybe Robin Hood," hospice manager Michael Knoble said.
The money is usually accompanied by a cutting from the city's newspaper, the Braunschweiger Zeitung.
The paper will not be trying to uncover the donor's identity, saying it prefers the fairytale.
