Founded by Alex Sheen after delivering a eulogy at his father’s funeral, an “average” man who always kept his promises and was true to his word, Alex began this social movement by offering to send 10 promise cards to anyone, anywhere in the world.
Since that day, because I said I would. has
- Distributed over 10.3 million Promise Cards
- Delivered Promise Cards in 153 countries
- Spoke to 389,246 individuals in Speaking Engagements
- Accumulated over 175,000 total social media followers
By covering all their overhead costs with their Founder’s speaking engagement fees, because I said I would. is able to put 100% of their donations towards their charitable programs, such as Charter Education in Schools, High School Chapters, Awareness Campaigns, Promise Cards, and other Charitable Projects.
