52 promises


A New Year’s resolution is often the first promise we make in a new year. Alex Sheen, Founder of because I said I would, was inspired by a friend to create a 52-week New Year’s resolution. He wrote out 52 separate week long goals on promise cards and each week he randomly selects one out of a hat. Every week he records a video about the experience and dedicates it to a nonprofit organization or social cause. Click here to Subscribe to our YouTube channel!
