because I said I would:
This movement was built from the incredible promises of our supporters and the stories they have shared. As
because I said I would has grown, many have suggested that we write a book.
For years we neglected this incredible opportunity for a simple reason: We wanted to first build a program for local chapters of
because I said I would. We wanted readers to finish the book and be able to join or start an effort to better the world around them. After all, we
are not here for emotional entertainment. Our mission is to better humanity through
promises made and kept. We need to provide actionable ways to do that.
Our local chapters launched in May
of 2016. We have been working diligently to improve and prepare this program. When our book is released, we hope that it will inspire thousands around the world to apply to start a because I said I would chapter.
An advanced reader copy of the because I said I would book
will be finished on or before December 31st, 2017. That is a promise. It will be a collection of supporters’ promise stories, along with perspective on commitment and how to get better at keeping promises.
How has a promise made, kept or broken affected your life? Many of the promise stories have already been selected, but we have reserved room in the book for stories that may still be out there. If you would like your story to be considered for the book, please submit your story as soon as reasonable through this page:
Thank you to everyone who has helped because I said I would make an impact on the world. Over 6.6 million promise cards have been distributed to over 150 countries. I believe we are just getting started.
