I can't even begin to thank 1Boy4Change for all the encouragement he brings to myself and others. First of all, I'm amazed that he does this completely by himself. I know it takes a lot of time and dedication, especially for someone who also has chronic illnesses. When I applied for my warrior beads, I was having a tough time coming to terms with the many diagnosis's I had recently received. What Chris does makes it very obvious that I'm not alone in my battle. Each color or type of bead represents something different in my medical journey. I was astonished when I received them and saw just how many there were. I now hang them on my IV pole when I do my infusions. It reminds me just how far I've come and just how strong I am. I now keep count of things so I can apply for more beads in the future. None of this would be possible without donations and the generosity of others! Thanks again, my warrior beads are the best!

My name is Nancy and I volunteer at 1Boy4Change counting and packaging Warrior Beads. I love the Warrior Bead program and how it impacts so many lives! I have watched the program go into an International program - it amazes my that this magic all began with the program designed by a 16 year old! 1Boy4Change is magical and I am so glad to volunteer there!

I heard of and about Chris through a mutual friend (Peg H.). In June 2013, slightly before midnight, I received a phone call from Peg. Against Pegs suggestion, I accepted and acknowledged that I would submit an application to 1B4C to become a Volunteer Trainer, and did so that moment. To my surprise, I was accepted as an Evaluator/Trainer. I can tell you countless experiences witnessed, but that would violate the privacy of the "family" members 1B4C extends its heart to. But, you can look at any photo from any delivery and its evident....intimate...compassion...pride...family.
