Because I Said I Would

 Yesterday I got to do something really cool, I got to speak to 2,000 High Schoolers in Colorado Springs on behalf of Because I Said I Would. I met the 2 sweet girls below in November when they reached out and asked if they could get involved with our chapter in Denver even though they are in High School.... and OF COURSE they can. They heard our founder Alex Sheen speak at a DECA conference in Philly and it really resonated with them!
Over the past few months Matt and I have had the pleasure of getting to know these girls and they went to their principal and presented their idea to bring the heart of Because I Said I Would to their High School. They want all the student body to make and follow thru on promises which will better themselves, the school and the community!
 They even made it happen where we had 15 minutes at the Winter Sports Assembly yesterday and they asked me to speak and show a video! I think everything went so well and we got a really positive response... I just wanted to live up to the girls expectations. I was just so proud of them. I planned my speech out during the week, practiced, memorized and made sure that it spoke to teenagers and resonated with them.
After yesterday it wasn't goodbye for me with this school or these girls, I am excited to continue the relationship and help foster their budding desire to volunteer!
