About because I said I would

Because I said I would is a social movement and nonprofit dedicated to the betterment of humanity. Our mission is to strengthen humanity’s will. Because I said I would encourages and supports making and keeping promises to end suffering, establish peace and build happiness.  We created the Promise Card to help hold people accountable to their commitments, but the movement has grown into something far greater than just its origin. Our programs help the world get better one person at a time:

  • Character education programming for school-aged children
  • Volunteerism through our local chapters 
  • Awareness campaigns with global reach

The world faces many challenges. In this adversity, we often hope for miracle solutions; an incredible new technology, a huge policy change or billions in funding. What if we really just needed to keep our promises? Report child abuse. Volunteer. Stay in rehab. Graduate from high school. Recycle. Sometimes we don’t need a miracle solution. Sometimes we just need people to do what they said they were going to do.

Make and keep a promise to improve yourself, your family or your community. If you need a promise card to make the commitment real, we will send you one. The world is in need, so you are needed.

Alex Sheen, Founder, and others give speeches around the country about the importance of a promise. If you would be interested in sharing the because I said I would message with an audience, please let us know! Click here to get more information.
