Diagnosed with severe Aplastic Anemia, Sam and her sister sold their cars, bought a van and road tripped across all 50 states to sign people up for the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry. Despite finding life saving matches for over 100 people, Sam still takes 20 pills a day to fight off her disease and has been unable to find her cure.
Members from because I said I would chapters in Denver, Cleveland and Tampa made a commitment to sign up for the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry through Delete Blood Cancer . We held swabbings in all three of these cities.

Our character education lesson plans ( free for download) are spreading across the United States. We are ramping up for the 2016-2017 school year. Last year we conducted in-person character education programming with over 30,000 students.
Over the next 12 months, our goal is to release 20 more lesson plans for teachers to use in classrooms. We are also expanding our Teacher Advisory Council in the near future (stay tuned). After completing the initial phases of our local chapters for adults, we hope to start because I said I would clubs in high schools and middle schools. This will take some time, but we are dedicated. If we want the next generation to have determination in their character, then we must continue to invest in building these programs.
In the meantime, if you’re interested in having a series of because I said I would assembly speeches in your school district, please contact us here.
