Such an amazing charity! My son received warrior beads from 1boy4change to tell his medical story with. As a mom it was a little somber but it also showed me everything we have overcome with our little guy so far. We cannot thank them enough. My son is proud to show off his warrior beads and tell his story:)

1boy4change changed my daughter's life by giving her Service dog. This dog is amazing, he detects every seizure with out fail. Her service dog has allowed my daughter to be independent and she has a companion and friend for as long as her Service dog can do it. Thank you 1boy4change. Our Family has earned a special friendship and a place in our hearts with Chris, Janet Carswell and Bronx.

Chris at 1boy4change is a wonderful young man that has helped my family and son so much. He has helped to supply my son with a much needed service dog and now he sends warrior beads to my son. These beads may not seem like much to others but to a special needs child they mean so much! Thank you Chris!

I am a mom. Just like every mom, I want what's best for my children. My middle son has spinal muscular atrophy. He is wheelchair bound, and has an amazing personality. 1boy4change is helping my son by giving him a service dog. My son will now enjoys the benefits of feeling a little bit of this freedom that many of us take for granted. SD Abby is going to open many wonderful doors (both physically and emotionally) for my son. I just can't thank Chris and his mom Janet enough. They are giving my baby hope fit his future.

Chris is doing a great job with his bead project, where he gives beads to children who have serious illnesses for every procedure they have done. what a great idea. I know of one of the children who has personally benefited from this free service. For a young man who has had to fight illness all his life he is doing a great service for others what a fine example he is setting for others. May god Bless him as well as his mother who helps him so very much .

1Boy4change is a great example of what the youth of today can do just by doing something. The young man who started 1Boy4Change did just that. He helps raise funds for police K9 teams so that they will have special first aid kits and heat alarms for their cars. Chris lives a life of service to others all the while battleing his many health issues. His latest idea to help children with health issues is his worrier beads progam. He is an amazing young man who is changing the world one good dead at a time

My son was involved in an accident in February and once he got home from his hospital stay I looked into the 1Boy4Change Warrior Bead program. My son's life has changed drastically from that accident and with the beads from Chris he is able to tell his medical journey. Adding new beads to his string is not only therapeutic for him but also feels like a sense of closure for those procedures. I would have never thought that a simple program like this could make such a huge difference to children during their medical journeys.

1Boy4Change is a great nonprofit that has helped and continues to help so many people including children and adults as well as the military and those that serve including K-9's . I cannot begin to say how impressed I was when I read about 1Boy4Change. One thing I check out with nonprofits is where the money goes, just know when you donate to 1Boy4Change your donation will help many and be wisely spent.

Chis is a wonderful young man who volunteers his time to others in need. His causes are near and dear to my heart. His love and concern for very ill children and K9s who need First Aid kits shows his caring nature. Chris, SD BRONX and Janet are loved by many for their tireless volunteer work. I will support them always.

1boy4change is absolutely amazing - thinking of others before himself and truly making a change one person at a time. Rest assured that any donation goes exactly where it is intended.

I have personally had officers in our area receive the K9 alarms which they would have had no other way to receive them without 1boy4change. I have donated and seen the impact it has.

Thank you to Chris Carswell and his entire team.....will continue to follow and be a donor for many years to come.
