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 keeps promises to help others in need through volunteerism and works to become better citizens through personal development workshops. 

Because I said I would Akron is a force for good in our community. Our members hold a meetup each month that acts as a personal development group. We work on our 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.


What do our chapters do?

1. Personal Development for members.

We work together to grow. Through thought-provoking content and workshops we improve and refine the practice of keeping promises. We also learn about how promises and humanity are affected by history, psychology, philosophy and culture. 

2. Unified charitable promises in our city.

Make and keep unified promises as a team. Our volunteer projects help people and causes in our local community.
