Never Enough: A Promise to Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight
Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were imprisoned and sexually abused for over 10 years. Two days after they were freed, Alex Sheen, founder of because I said I would, promised these women that he would give them 10 days of his life to serve in acts of kindness in their honor. To keep this promise, Alex will walk 240 miles across the state of Ohio in ten days working to raise awareness for the victims of sexual violence. But no matter how many miles he walks, it will never be enough to make up for what has been taken from these women. "Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it." -- Gandhi Find out more at www.becauseisaidiwould.com/neverenough June 15 -25 Join the Journey.
