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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Call Obama and demand $1mil to purchase a delivery vehicle and purchase property to build the ultimate 20 run service dog training facility to allow 1B4C to continue its journey.
