There’s a new building going up across the street from a children’s hospital in South Bend, Indiana. And the construction foreman came up with a pretty cool way to entertain all the sick kids who’ve been watching from their windows.
His name is Jason Haney, and he looks like he’s in his mid-30s. A few months ago, he printed up a life-sized cutout of Waldo from the “Where’s Waldo” books. And he’s been hiding it around the construction site, so the kids have to find it every day.
He says he came up with the idea after he and his employees built a snowman outside the hospital last winter, and the kids loved it.
And he has a daughter in high school who suffered a stroke while his wife was still pregnant with her. So he knows how important distractions can be for kids AND their parents when something like that’s going on.
