How it all started


In their decade long friendship, Ray Lewis and John Brenkus have bonded over one common principle: spreading positive energy, especially to those in need.

Here’s an example:

John asked Ray to record a short video giving words of inspiration to a friend who was newly diagnosed with brain cancer (Grade 4 Glioblastoma).  The very next day, a friend asked John to record a short, uplifting video message for a high school athlete who was paralyzed in a freak accident.


The video requests for both Ray and John kept coming…it was almost like something in the ether granted people permission to ask for a simple favor which, John and Ray in turn, gladly fulfilled.  The positive energy began to perpetuate itself and, thus, the idea for “Ray of Hope” was born.
