The great news first: Synergia Effect is officially recognized by the Federal Government (not just the State of California) for tax-exemption as a 501(c)3 public non-profit organization! This is HUGE news!

Now, what does this mean? This means that we are full steam ahead in our fundraising and business outreach efforts. This includes our first Kickstarter campaign. We are in need of a videographer to shoot and edit our Kickstarter video.

This will be an unpaid roll, but whomever chooses to take the job on will be able to write off the work put in when filing for their 2014 taxes. Our goal is to find someone as soon as possible and have our campaign up and ready to go by December 1 at the latest. If interested please contact breanna@synergiaeffect.org. Help us take the first step towards changing the world.
