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!

1Boy4Change is a wonderful charity, run by a young man who believes in honesty and integrity. He supports our law enforcement community particularly K9s by raising funds to obtain heat alarms for the cruiser so that a K9 is not going to suffer from excessive heat. Working with We Ride To Provide he assists K9 teams in obtaining first aid kits. Chris also supports our military by sending 'care' packages. Despite having medical conditions and an up hill fight he still thinks of others and their needs and concerns. Helping this young man to succeed is a worthwhile investment of your time and any donation you can make.

My husband and I have been donating to 1Boy4Change for quite awhile. We know every dollar we donate will be spent very wisely. Chris is an amazing young man and does so much good for others. He purchases heat alarms and first aid kits for the handlers of Police K9s. He also gives out Warrior Beads to sick kids and adults to help them keep track of everything that they've been through. We are honored to donate to such a worthy charity.

I feel that 1Boy4Change, is awesome. I truly believe that this young man truly loves his work. He provides K-9 units and handlers with equipment to do their job safely.
He provides young people with a distraction during their illness with his Warrior Bead program. He is a example of what young people should be.

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

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.

Chris is such an amazing and inspiring young man. Despite all of the health issues he has to battle, he still wants to help others out with his amazing bead program, K-9 First Aid kits, and K-9 Heat Alarms. I have supported his endeavors in the past and will continue to do so.

I first met Chris and his mom at the Camp Boggy Creek Epilepsy Family Weekend 2012. I just don't have any words to describe them that have not already been said! This young man is my inspiration to go on and to also do good for others. I can't afford much (yet) but I have sent a donation to them for the tablets for special needs project, and have also issued a challenge on my website (http://edu.dhovey.com) for everyone to meet or beat it! In addition, I am pledging a small percentage of my profits from teaching to their organization. Janet is an awesome mom, and there is nothing in the world she would not do for her family or a friend - even a "new" friend! And CHRIS.... well... he is the heart and soul of the organization, and truly my personal hero. I am as proud of him as I would be of my own child, and love them as if they were family. You can do it Chris... go move some more mountains!! All our best... from the Hovey family
