During his interview, Alex shared the story of how he became the founder of a wildly successful social movement. Sheen’s organization, “Because I Said I Would” was built upon his father’s principles and morale. The concept stemmed from his father’s accountability and commitment to his word. In 2012, when Alex was just twenty-seven years old, his father passed away from cancer. In memory of his death, Sheen created this movement to inspire others to follow in his footsteps.
His dedication to keeping promises started with delivering relief supplies to families devastated by Hurricane Sandy. He made a promise to himself to raise $2,000 in order to purchase the supplies. To solidify his commitment, he said: “If I cannot raise this money by November 9th, I will use my own.” Furthermore, he didn’t want his goal to stop there. His vow evolved into Sheen volunteering at fifty-two other nonprofit organizations. At the time, he was working in the software industry, but he soon left to devote all of his time and efforts to “Because I Said I Would.”
Alex took his efforts to the next level by becoming a keynote speaker and traveling the world to inspire others through good will and good deeds. Today, Sheen continues to deliver his empowering message and is dedicated to the betterment of humanity through promises that are made and kept.
