What is "because I said I would"?
This is an "about video" for because I said I would, the international social movement and nonprofit dedicated to the betterment of humanity through promises made and kept. Some people think we are just a Facebook page. Some people think we just give out promise cards. Everybody understands the importance of a promise, but not everyone understands what Because I said I would. actually does. If you've ever wondered who we really are… if you've ever struggled to explain the movement to a friend… watch our new "about video."

Because I said I would | Alex Sheen | TEDxUtica
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
The Four Year Anniversary of because I said I would.
On September 4th, 2012, Wei-Min "Al" Sheen died of stage 4 small cell lung cancer. Today marks the four-year anniversary of his passing and the beginning of a movement to better humanity through promises made and kept. Alex Sheen, his son and Founder of Because I said I would., recorded a video today in reflection of an unfortunate event in his life. This video is not edited or polished and Alex didn't really feel like making it. If you have ever lost someone, you may understand the type of thoughts that come with an anniversary like this. We encourage you to make four promises in honor of someone you know or love.
