Because I said I would is an international social movement and nonprofit dedicated to the betterment of humanity through promises made and kept. Our Akron chapter seeks to end suffering, establish peace, and build happiness through local volunteer projects. As we help build a stronger community, our members also look to improve as individuals through our personal promises and thought-provoking learning opportunities.

Because I said I would Akron is a force for good in our community. Our members hold a meeting each month to plan unified charitable promises, act as an accountability support group for individual promises, and learn new and interesting ways to get better with commitment. After planning our unified charitable promises, we execute these projects in a separate gathering every month or every two months.


What do our chapters do?

Accountability support for members.

1. Work together as a support group to help members meet their commitments and keep their individual promises.

Unified charitable promises in your city.

2. Make and keep unified promises as a team to help people and causes in their local communities.

Thought-provoking content and learning topics.

3. Improve and refine the practice of keeping promises by learning about how promises and humanity are affected by history, psychology, philosophy, and culture. We also learn practical methods that make us better at keeping promises.
