Mission Statement

Because I said I would is a social movement and nonprofit dedicated to the betterment of humanity. Our mission is to strengthen humanity’s will. Because I said I would encourages and supports making and keeping promises to end suffering, establish peace and build happiness. We created the Promise Card to help hold people accountable to their commitments, but the movement has grown into something far greater than just its origin. Our programs help the world get better one person at a time.


Promise cards help you remember the importance of your commitments and goals. We have sent over 8.42 million promise cards to over 153 different countries, by request only.

Because I said I would is a social movement and nonprofit organization dedicated to bettering humanity through promises made and kept. People use promise cards to remember the importance of their word, for promises both big and small. It might just seem like a piece of paper, but promise cards have motivated people to stick with their commitments to better humanity. A heroin addict’s promise to stay in rehab. A young girl’s promise to stop cutting herself. Or a simple promise to volunteer at the local food bank.
