In this video, Alex Sheen, founder of Because I Said I Would, describes how his organization is a social movement and nonprofit dedicated to the betterment of humanity through the importance of a promise. Sparked by the loss of his father, Alex sends "promise cards" to anyone anywhere in the world at no cost and honors commitments made to charitable efforts. In less than two years, Because I Said I Would has sent over 250,000 promise cards to over 82 different countries. The promises written on these cards have made headlines around the world. Alex himself is someone who truly honors commitment. 

Alex Sheen believes that we live in a society that often does not respect the importance of a promise. It is too easy to say "I'll get to it" or "tomorrow." In many ways we have become numb to disappointment and broken commitments. This expectation starts to fade into our character as individuals. Alex Sheen believes that every individual has the strength to become a person of their word. As the Founder of an international social movement, Alex shares his insights and action steps on how to become better at fulfilling commitments. He inspires others to become more accountable to their promises through compelling and real-life examples from the because I said I would movement. Alex convincingly illustrates how integrity and keeping your promises are forever interwoven. He discusses how holding ourselves and each other accountable truly changes humanity for the better.
