Construction foreman Jason Haney, who works next to the Memorial Children's Hospital in South Bend, Indiana, wanted to bring a little happiness to the lives of his young neighbours.

He and his daughter Taylor, created an 8-foot-tall cut out of Where's Waldo (known as Where's Wally in Australia). Each day, Haney hides Waldo on the building site for the children in the hospital to find.

When the kids have located him, Haney is notified and the stripy icon is moved to another spot.

Haney told The Huffington Post that he wanted the kids to have some fun. "It's just for the kids to get their minds off of things," he said.

Of the idea, Haney says a co-worker inspired him. "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?'"

Unable to get the idea out of his head, Haney decided, "I'm going to make him, I'm going to do it!"

And he did.

Waldo has been such a hit with the kids (and staff) at the children's hospital that Haney and his daughter are already working on their next project: Minions.
