Thanks for visiting our page!

Hi, we are Sian & Alex, two people hoping to raise money for two causes very dear to us, via a bit of an odd challenge...

We are drawing every single UEFA Euro 2016 Panini sticker, beginning on the day the tournament begins and finishing by the time the final kicks off. So that's June 10th - July 10th 2016, 800 stickers in 30 days.

We undertook a similar challenge for the 2014 World Cup as a cost-saving exercise, which took over our lives in many crazy ways and which you can read all about here. As you can see, we cannot draw a jot, but people from Brazil to Iran to Japan to Mexico seemed to like our wonky drawings, and we ended up in a book, a micro-doc film and an exhibition.

So anyway, because we're gluttons for punishment, we're doing it all over again, but this time we'd love to use the challenge to raise some money for two great causes whom we both happen to work for: Cancer Research UK and Macintyre Charities.

  • Donate to Cancer Research and Macintyre Charities to egg us on to finish our hand drawn Euro 2016 Panini album!
  • The top 100 donators will get a personalised Panini Cheapskate picture, ideal for printing out and sticking in the 'My Panini' section of your Euro 2016 Panini album (if you have one). When Euro 2016 has finished and the dust has settled, the top 100 donators will be emailed so you can send your photo to us, which we will attempt to draw as best we can. You can also choose your country or club and what kit you want to wear.
  • Please note the personalised Paninis will be completed after our challenge has finished and may take some time, and may be absolutely awful as well despite what I can assure you will be our best efforts.
  • Please be sure to leave your email address to be in with a chance of receiving a picture. Anonymous donors may be exempt due to details not being shared. Pictures will be hand drawn and sent to you via a png/jpeg file. All you need to do is print it out onto a sticker and pop it in the front of your own album!  
  • Lastly, if you're the philanthropic type, donate £10,000 and you'll get the full, completed album with all 800 hand drawn stickers to keep! 

We really appreciate all your support and a huge thank you in advance for any donations! Why not follow us on Twitter (@CheapPanini) for a constant supply of very dodgy drawings? Oh, and tell your friends!

Thanks,
Sian & Alex
