The kids at Memorial Children's Hospital in South Bend, Indiana, stare out of their windows for hours on end each day.
But they don't do so wistfully. They're on a mission. Although it seems like they're just scoping out the construction workers across the street, they're actually on the hunt for something way cuter than sweaty dudes in neon vests. These little ones are looking for the stripe-wearing cartoon that so often evaded us as children: the infamous Waldo.
Okay, Waldo might not be cuter than this particular construction worker.
When Jason Haney realized that he and his crew were working next to a children's hospital, they knew that they had to do something for the kids inside.
The foreman and his colleagues had been working on the site for months, and last winter, they built a snowman that thrilled kiddos and doctors alike. Once summer rolled around, they decided to come up with a new plan.
That's when Haney's coworker suggested that they build a giant Waldo for the kids to find. After thinking about it for a bit, Haney ran with the idea.
Every day, the crew hides Waldo in different spots on the site. Patients, parents, and physicians can't get enough!
When he's notified that someone has spotted him, Haney moves the figure.
Can you find him?
But here's what makes the whole thing really special.
When Haney decided to make the Waldo cutout, he enlisted help from his daughter, who needed special care from another children's hospital when she was a toddler after having a severe stroke. He always reserves a special place in his heart for the doctors who care for these amazing patients.
