The long journey to get answers, have brain surgeries, and recover!
"Due to all the issues expressed earlier, I would like to announce that 1B4C does NOT endorse nor have we granted ANYONE to do/perform/accept donations on our behalf. ANYONE wishing to support Chris and 1Boy4Change, please do so by submitting the donation DIRECTLY TO CHRIS AND 1BOY4CHANGE.
We have too many people performing fundraisers to pay for Service Dogs In Training and Service Dogs while no income is being turned in to Chris or 1Boy4Change. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We will now perform fundraisers on our own, since those we helped can't be trusted with the generosity they receive from supporters and followers."
P.S. IF you are found to have hosted a fundraiser on behalf of Chris Carswell/1B4C in any capacity...we will seek punitive damages. We are too good to you to steal from a 15 year old that gives of himself freely thru the generosity of others.
It's a rare occasion for us...
But while conducting the Public Access Test on Cup Of NooDy 's MagicMo Mo, we observed these two notifying the staff on the presence of a SDiT (Service Dog in Training), and then volunteered their time to assist in the examination.
It's people like THIS that make Island Grove Kennels of Tennessee, Inc. efforts worth while. A very special THANK YOU to Mrs. Lewelling & Mr. Lewelling of Peak Fitness!
Congratulations to Magic Mo - now, officially SD Mo!!!
Thank You to everyone that helped with this journey! We are moving mountains and changing lives! THANK YOU!

Chris will be honored at the Youth Heroes Breakfast on Friday, April 11, 2014!
"We would like to identify and recognize youth heroes who have honorably chosen to give back to their community through volunteering for any agency, organization, church or other charity."
The mission of the American Red Cross is to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
Volunteers make up more than 95% of the Red Cross workforce and we could not accomplish our work without them. I know that I speak for us all when I say that there would be no charitable agencies anywhere without dedicated volunteers.
A study of youth development indicates that youth volunteers are twice as likely to get better grades in school, 25% more likely to positively contribute to their family and community and twice as likely to continue their volunteer efforts as adults. Through volunteer initiatives, youth adopt mentors who lead by example, serve as a source of guidance and inspire young adults to achieve their goals with confidence.
This is why the American Red Cross is excited host the 1st Annual Youth Heroes Awards Breakfast in Statesboro at Georgia Southern University on Friday, March 7th and the 2nd Annual Youth Heroes Awards Breakfast at Savannah State University on Friday, April 11th.
During the awards breakfast, we will also honor two local community leaders, Chris Yaughn from Fostering Bulloch at the Statesboro event and Cathy Hill, Vice President of Georgia Power Coastal Georgia Region in Savannah.
Corporate, Individual, Table Sponsorships and Donations are available for both events. Please consider supporting the Youth Heroes Breakfast today! Sponsorships, Tickets and Tables are available NOW! to Sponsor in Savannah CLICK HERE. To Sponsor in Statesboro CLICK HERE. For more information call 912-651-5300 or firstname.lastname@example.org
