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!
Hello My Name is Norma Jean Grass and I live in the great state of Maine...I met Chris Carswell thru facebook a few years ago and seeing what he did and has gone thru in his short life time just made me to want to help him any way that I could..I support all the good things he is doing with the Warrior Bead Program what he does with the Dog Programs he has been in and not with the Program he is in with horses...He is 1 awesome young man making a huge difference in this world today...May God Bless him in what ever comes his way for he never turns down a challange...
I've been following Chris Carswell and 1Boy4Change for several years now. He was a child of 13 or 14 when I came to know of him through SD Bronx and his warrior beads program. I have never met a teenager with so much love and care in his heart for others. Chris puts his own pain and suffering to the side for the benefit of children who are ill, and his K9 protection program. He brings joy to both young children and adults. Chris Carswell is truly a young hero who will do great things in the future.
A wonderful young man is responsible for starting 1boy4chang. Even though he has had to deal with many health issues including multiple brain surgeries he lives his life in service to others. His warrior beads program helps others chart their own medical journey
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
This is an incredible organization that I am always glad to help! Chris is tireless in his efforts, he's focused on what's important, and has no doubt changed the lives of many. His selfless acts always get my attention, and every time I see one of the 1Boy4Change posts, it makes my heart happy!
It doesn't take long to look through 1Boy4Change's site to know that he and his mother are selfless, genuine people. Without hesitation or reservation I was glad to help the many causes that this organization supports. Although his main focus is protecting police K9s and helping those in need of service dogs, Chris never seems to back away from a challenge. When NJ asked for help, Chris stepped in and said YES! He never sees obstacles, only results. I have a lot of respect for this child and his mother. They work harder in a week than many people do in their lifetimes. He is truly an inspiration and for all his efforts he asks for so little in return. I have never met Chris but his works and words speak volumes for his character. I believe he has one of the biggest hearts out there and want to see him continue to exceed by helping others. That's what he wants and that's what he should get!
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've donated to this charity & have to say Chris is a wonderful young man doing great things.
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 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
My absolute favorite charity!!!! It is an honor to be involved with 1 boy 4 change!! Absolutely incredible. Alisia McIntyre / Highlander German Shepherds
