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!

I have volunteered for Chris Carswell at 1Boy4Change for more than 3 years. Chris runs a very professional foundation and I am always impressed how much one teenager can get accomplished. He does so much for others! Great foundation to support!

I am the very proud mother of Chris Carswell. He has overcome so many health problems and struggles everyday with his health, but through it all he wanted to do something - something positive! He came up with the concept of 1Boy4Change and ran with it! He has done it all - designed the logo, worked with a web designer to get all of his ideas into a professional website and keeps his BLOG current. He picks what he wants to support and he never "goes with the flow"! IF he decides to support a project, a family, or a cause then that is what he does and he expects to get it done! I am so proud of what he is doing and for all the lives he is touching! Keep up the GREAT JOB Chris!

I don't even know where to start with RAVING how amazing this foundation is! They give way beyond anyone's dreams! Chris is such an amazing human being and to be all this at such a young age means there is even more amazing things to come from him. Not only am I a board member but also a mom to a child he placed a service dog with. A service dog that has made my child in to a completely different loving child. He also helped save my husbands K9 partner by installing a heat alarm in his patrol car. I could write how wonderful he is for hours!!! But instead come join our team and find out for yourself just how wonderful and amazing this young man is!!!!
