I always dreamt of making my family's dream come true

The Vinicius Foundation has existed for a year. As a result, the Real Madrid footballer commemorated his achievement by hosting a gala in Rio and raising 120,000 euros to fund digital resources for students in classrooms. The Brazilian could not help but cry when asked to deliver a few words.

Vinicius has proven to be more than just a talented football player. The Real Madrid player is in charge of an initiative in Brazil that benefits students all throughout the nation.

The winger held a banquet in Rio to celebrate the first anniversary of his nonprofit organization, the Vinicius Jr. Institution, and was able to generate 120,000 euros to fund technical resources for students in classrooms.

The Brazilian reportedly broke down in tears while discussing his upbringing, according to 'AS': "I've always imagined this time. Making my family's goals come true—helping others in need just as much as I did when I was younger—has always been a goal of mine. Even though we've only been in the Vinicius Jr. Institution for a year, we've already had a big impact on many lives ".

"For me, scoring a goal in the Champions League final is not as significant as celebrating a year of my Institution and everything we are doing. I've had a very special season, and now I want more "Vinicius tacked on in the 'AS' remarks.
