'Reading Rainbow' Hits $1 Million Kickstarter Goal Within 11 Hours of Launch!

By now you may have heard that LeVar Burton launched a Kickstarter to bring back his hit show Reading Rainbow as a web series.

Eleven hours after launching the campaign to bring back the hit series, it reached its one million dollar goal, and numbers are still rising!

At the moment, the Kickstarter has raised $1,768,482. Congratulations – we cannot wait to see this educational series brought back to life.

“Our goal is to cultivate a love of reading in all children, not just those that have tablets. To reach kids everywhere, we need to be everywhere: we need to be on the web.” the campaign urges in its mission statement.

Check out the Kickstarter and donate if you can!

wow that’s nice. most kids will be on their computers than watching tv in this age so this is the best idea. i hope teachers are informed of this so they can encourage their students to watch this online cause it was a great show and LeVar was the nicest guy. raising 1 million in 11 hrs is impressive though.
