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

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.

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
