About the Founder

Ray L. Harper is a native of Fayetteville, North Carolina.  He has been strongly influenced by his wonderful parents and inspirational grandparents.  The sense of caring and helping others impacted him at an early age.  Simply put, it is a way of life that all should do. He believes that he was designed to impact the world through The O.H.O.P.  Way. Ray has worked in the community with at-risk youth, students with special needs, and the homeless for the past 20+ years.  His life experiences and interactions within the community caused him to expand his influence of helping others to make a positive change in the world.   O.H.O.P. Apparel was created from his love and compassion for people. It is a representation of himself in every word: OTHERS HELPING OTHERS PROSPER (OHOP).


We are genuine, authentic and stand by our motto: OTHERS HELPING OTHERS PROSPER.  The proceeds from our products are used to spread love, hope and care through multicultural & diverse projects in the community the O.H.O.P. way. We provide clothing and other necessities for the homeless, programs and intervention for at-risk youth and community support to various agencies.
