Jason Haney seems like your typical construction worker, were it not for his creativity and his caring heart.

The resident of South Bend, Indiana, was working on a construction site when he realized that he could see small faces peering out of the windows of the children’s hospital next door. It broke his heart, knowing that these sick children were bed-ridden, unable to get up and explore the world.

In many ways, the only world they saw was through those sun-soaked windows.

That’s when Haney came up with an idea that’s kind of genius. As Bored Panda reports, he and his daughter decided to create an 8-foot-tall cut out of Where’s Waldo and hide it on the site everyday, giving the kids at Memorial Children’s Hospital a little game to play each day.


It quickly caught their attention, and they tried hard to see who could spot Waldo through their windows first.

“Once Haney is notified that the kids found Waldo, the large cut-out is moved to a different spot, and the kids look for it again,” Bored Panda reports. “Haney has even created a Facebook group for the kids to post their finds.”

What’s next for the kind-hearted construction man? Well, he and his daughter are already hard at work on a set of cut-out “Minions” as yet another way to cheer up the kids.
