“You can pretend to care, but you can’t pretend to show up.”
– George Bell
My team and I are working on a number of initiatives that we hope will make a positive impact on humanity. We want to build structured programs with schools, addiction treatment centers and other nonprofits to help keep people committed to good. We are building a plan to start because I said I would chapters around the world that will make unified promises for good. We are even contemplating publishing a because I said I would book where all the proceeds would benefit the nonprofit.
As our efforts continue, I want to thank everyone for all the love you have shown the movement. Without your promises, your contributions and support, we are nothing. See three incredible promises stories and other announcements below and never forget the importance of a promise.
On March 21st, Alex Sheen, Founder of because I said I would, spoke to 3,600 high school and middle school students at a Future Business Leaders of America conference in Florida. Alex reminded the students that life isn’t just about money and financial success. A true leader honors their commitments and uses their strength to help others in need.
The students were encouraged to write promise cards at the end of the session and the results were amazing. We have compiled a photo album of some of the promises that were written.
Colonel Parker Schenecker served in the U.S. Army for 27 years. While serving in the middle east in 2011, both of his children in Tampa Bay, Florida were killed by their mother. The Colonel’s story of perseverance and leadership after such heart-breaking tragedy is truly inspiring.
The Colonel is now speaking on behalf of because I said I would and 100% of his speaking fee goes to charitable causes. To learn more, click here.
