Alex Sheen
Founder of Because I Said I Would

Alex Sheen is the founder of because I said I would, a social movement and nonprofit dedicated to bettering humanity through promises made and kept. Sparked by the loss of his father, Alex and his organization send “promise cards” to anyone anywhere in the world at no cost. Alex Sheen’s father died of small cell lung cancer on September 4, 2012. His father was good with his promises, so Alex titled his father’s eulogy “because I said I would” and created the promise card in his memory. Eventually Alex would decide to resign from his corporate position in order to advance his mission.

His charitable projects and awareness campaigns have been featured on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, CNN, The Today Show, NPR, The Los Angeles Times and many other programs.


Due to the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the convocation on Wednesday, September 6th, we will not be requiring students, for which the convocation was mandatory, to make-up the program.
