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.
