Smile Project Louisville

Michael Ray, is the founder of Smile Project Louisville, an organization created to affect attitude and behaviors through smiling with strangers. As the oldest of 7, Michael has seen life take many twists and turns. After 20+ years in the tumultuous mortgage industry, the death of a child, the challenges of a non-verbal special needs daughter and divorce, this father of 4 acted on a once dreamt desire of inspiring others through small acts. This leap of faith has since turned into Smile Project Louisville.

Today, you can find Michael’s daily encounters with total strangers on several social media platforms with active followers all over the world. He has been on numerous pod casts, news stories, radio stations and has recently ventured into public speaking.
