    Philanthropy

    On September 4, 2012, Sheen’s father passed away. While giving his father’s eulogy he spoke of how his father treated his promises. The speech he later titled “Because I said I would”, was the first time Alex introduced “Promise Cards”. Later that year, Sheen founded because I said I would, a non-profit dedicated to the betterment of humanity through promises made and kept.

    In his time as CEO and Founder, Alex Sheen has walked across Ohio to raise awareness for the victims of sexual violence, carried out a promise to volunteer for 52 non-profits in a single year, and he continues to help others understand the value of keeping their promises.

    One example is when Alex filmed a man confessing he killed another driver in a drunken crash.
