Have you ever wanted to have dinner with LeVar Burton? Or maybe try on his Star Trek visor? Also wanna help kids all over the world read and learn cool things? WELL NOW YOU CAN!

LeVar Burton– my dad– has started a new kickstarter (click the link) to fund his awesome Reading Rainbow app. The prizes are really cool and involve people like Patrick Stewart and Laurence Fishburne!

If you can donate 5 dollars, please do. If you can afford more, you rock. If you can’t, please signal boost to do your part!

We’re counting on you, Tubmlr– the community of nerds and awesome people.

LeVar Burton Weeps in Gratitude Over Donations for Reading Rainbow

It’s been one day since LeVar Burton began crowdsourcing funds to reboot beloved television series Reading Rainbow as an educational app and he’s already raised over $2 million, more than twice his original goal. Butterfly in the skyyyyyyyyy! You can go twice as hiiiiiiiiiigh!

There’s still most of a month to go, and the more funds they raise, the more kids they can reach.  Even if you can’t donate, would you pass the link on?

Congratulations to everyone at Reading Rainbow - $2,000,000 in two days! $3,000,000 in three days!

(x)

ETA:

Since people have been so generous so far, the new target is $5,000,000. This would allow Reading Rainbow to be made available to 7,500 of the poorest classrooms in America free of charge!

Additionally, some of the rewards that had previously sold out have had extras added!
