July 20, 2016

To help kids find a little joy in their day, Justin Haney has been hiding a life-size Waldo on his construction site every day for kids who are staying at the hospital next door to find.

Once enough children at Memorial Children's Hospital in South Bend, Indiana find Waldo, Haney is notified and then moves him to a new hiding spot.

It's become so popular among the children and hospital staff, that Haney started a Facebook group so people can post pictures of their finds.

Haney, who's working on an expansion of the hospital, says he got the idea from a co-worker.

"He came up to me, and was kind of joking around, and said, 'Wouldn't it be funny if there was a Waldo up here?'" Haney told HuffPost. "And I thought, 'Yeah, that's kind of cool.' Then the idea sat in my head for a little while and I was like, 'I'm going to make him, I'm going to do it!'"

Haney debuted Waldo in April and it was an instant hit.

"He's eight-feet tall and a pain in the butt to move around sometimes," Haney admitted. "He's 50, 60 pounds and he's awkward to carry. But it's worth it for the kids."
