"UpEffect has certainly surpassed my expectation for a crowdfunding platform. The team is very supportive and available 24x7, always on their toes, solving issues faster than you can raise them. There are so many social problems in the world, many problem solvers and so many people who are willing to support. Something like UpEffect is so much needed. Many more crowdfunding campaigns to come from me."Rohit Nayak

"My experience with UpEffect was wonderful. From regular Skype sessions, to make sure we were on track, to valuable guidance on marketing and film making, I had a thorough learning experience interacting with you. Once again, I cannot thank you enough for your support. This campaign has provided me with quiet a few eye openers and encouraged me to take similar initiatives in the future having learnt from our shortcomings. Moreover, your flexibility in times of unexpected issues was extremely helpful and I appreciate you for it."Fareeha Ali
