During any major soccer tournament, the dream of any child (and some of the adults as well) is to collect the Panini sticker album. The 8-year-old Brazilian fan Pedro Henrique Blaco Arouca wanted, just as his young classmates, to collect the soccer stickers, but because his family didn’t have the money, he decided to draw the full album with all the stars himself.

After the Italian publisher of the iconic albums heard about it, they decided to send him the album for free, complete with all stickers.

Every young boy around the world knows the sticker album. You buy packages of stickers in the hope that you don’t have those players yet and if you do, you try to exchange those that you have double with your friends.

In the end, this costs money, for some children, too much money. A math professor in the UK once calculated that upon average it would cost a whopping $850 to collect all stickers on your own, and a slightly more reasonable $350 if you exchange with at least 4 friends.

The mother of 8-year-old Pedro works as a cashier and therefore the family didn’t have a lot of money to spend on soccer stickers. But, for the imaginary young boy, there are other possibilities like designing the stickers himself, which is exactly what he did.

Equipped with just a few sheets of paper and some crayons, Pedro designed his own Panini Album of the World Cup 2018 in Russia. He drew the cover and the 126 stickers of all players, including Messi and Ronaldo.

"I did not know all the players, so I also signed Pelé," said the young man. He is a big fan of the Brazilian ex-footballer.

Panini learned of the incredible story and on Twitter, the Italian company has now promised that they have a surprise in store for the boy. He will receive a completed album.

This is a sweet story with an awesome ending. Especially in this day of heinous crimes against children, and not the BS made up for MSM, Muh tearing kids from their mothers titties while they are feeding stories flooding the feeds.
