Construction worker starts fun Where’s Wally? game for children in hospital

Making a hospital stay fun for a child is a challenge, but one big-hearted construction worker has found a way.

US building foreman Jason Haney has gained quite a following on Facebook since word spread of a game he started to cheer up patients in the children’s wing of the hospital, which overlooks his construction worksite.

With the help of his daughter, he has created a large Where’s Wally? (known as Waldo in the US) cut-out.


Each day Jason hides Wally in a different location on site for the young patients at Memorial Children’s Hospital, Indiana to spot from their hospital windows.


Hospital staff let Jason know when the cut-out is found so it can be moved to a new location for the children to find again.


Jason tells the South Bend Tribune the Where’s Wally? challenge followed the excited reactions of patients and staff to a snowman workers built during winter.

“One of the electricians said he thought it would be funny if there was a Waldo,” Jason says.


His next project will star construction-ready Minions.
