[Video] - LeVar Burton Launches a Reading Rainbow Campaign on Kickstarter - Raises $1 Million in Less Than 24 Hours

LeVar Burton launched a kickstarter campaign to raise funds to expand the 'Reading Rainbow' experience to children everywhere...for free. 'Reading Rainbow' is an award-winning program that was initially on the PBS network for years until it was cancelled.

However LeVar Burton has kept 'Reading Rainbow' alive with an app, and now wants to expand that concept. An excellent idea.

In less than one day, LeVar Burton's kickstarter campaign raised over $1 million dollars.

To date, the campaign has raised over $2.7 million and has over 63,000 backers...those numbers continue to rise. The campaign ends in 33 days. If you would like to become a backer for this amazing project, go to the 'Reading Rainbow' kickstarter page here --->
