Sunny Days Ahead For New Sunglass Company That's Helping Feed America
This small business that started in its founder's basement, is now making a big difference!
Founded by Chris Ratterman, Shady Rays makes the business of giving back its mission. The small, American owned sunglass company started 5 years ago in Louisville, Kentucky. Although it's still young, it's making great strides.
With the motto Live Hard. We Got You.™, Shady Rays focuses on making the best and most stylish sunglasses for anytime/anywhere wear and thanks to their high-quality shatterproof lenses and durable construction, they offer a Lifetime Craftsmanship Warranty and Free Replacements for any lost or broken glasses. But that's not the most impressive part about this company!
Every order purchased through Shady Rays secures 11 meals for hungry Americans through the nonprofit program, Feeding America. The ultimate goal - to provide 1 million meals to hungry Americans every year.
Shady Rays is a next generation company, full of action seekers who provide innovative sports gear meant for everything life throws at you. They're building a dynamic team full of Brand Ambassadors and Sponsored Athletes who have a passion for change. Among them is Buffalo Bills running back LeSean "Shady" McCoy who has his own special edition Shady Rays sunglasses line. 25% of all his sales go to his foundation Shades of Greatness, which supports both inner city youth and ALS research.
Now that Shady Rays has a fulfillment center in Lexington, (where it's able to ship its merchandise around the country) and a team of difference-makers on the field working hard for the company, the future is looking bright for this sunglasses company on a mission.Are you ready to make a difference?

Tennis is a popular and fun pastime, in that it requires mental focus and athletic ability. But due to the cost of equipment and court time, lots of kids never get the chance to try their hand at the sport. Leaders of the Junior Tennis Champion Center (JTCC) recognized this cost challenge, and decided to do something to change it. In 2009, JTCC launched a Community Outreach initiative, with the goal of introducing underserved kids in Prince George's County, MD, and Washington, DC to tennis. And the program has become an indisputable success.
