Reading Rainbow Kickstarter

"Reading Rainbow" was suddenly on everyone's mind this week when LeVar Burton announced a Kickstarter on Wednesday. The goal? To raise $1 million in order to revive "Reading Rainbow" and bring interactive books and video field trips to kids everywhere. It would also help classrooms in need. Burton made the Kickstarter a generous 35 days long — but was shocked when it surpassed its goal on the first day. Burton released an emotional video thanking everyone for their donations. Then he embarked on a press tour, where he's done everything from a Reddit AMA to interviews with media outlets like People Magazine. Check out more about the Kickstarter here.
