window washing waldosWaldo will do anything to help Seattle Children’s. He’s been entertaining patients throughout construction of Building Hope by asking patients to spot him as he visits different parts of the hospital. Now, he’s washing the building’s windows.

OK. So we’re stretching the truth just a little. The Waldo who materializes around our campus is a wooden replica that our contractor, Sellen Construction, created to engage patients and families. And those window washers dangling from ropes in red-and-white sweaters? They actually work for Outlook Exterior Maintenance and agreed to dress like Waldo at the suggestion of Todd Johnson, our vice president of facilities.

None of that changes the fact that Waldo – in whatever form he takes – makes people smile wherever he goes. Thanks, Waldo – and be careful up there!
