by Matt Wright , Filed under: Celebrity,Trek on TV,Web , comments closed

As we reported a couple of weeks ago LeVar Burton had started a Kickstarter fund to bring back beloved children’s show Reading Rainbow. It made their first goal of funding within a day, but the need for funding isn’t over, in an update this week Burton announced that he has enlisted Trek alumni to help him read stories, there will be exclusive Reading Rainbow Live! events for Kickstarter  pledges.

Reading Rainbow Live! is a series of one-time-only events where I’m inviting you to bring your child and join us for a few hours. My friends and I will read from a few children’s books. We’ll all watch a classic episode of Reading Rainbow together, and everyone will go home with some special goodies. And afterward, there will also be a smaller Meet & Greet reception where a small number of families can join us to take photos, sign autographs and talk!

The first performance will feature the “Men of Star Trek,” which include: Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, and Robert Picardo. The second performance is themed as the “Women of Star Trek,” with Marina Sirtis and Gates McFadden, Jeri Ryan and Kate Mulgrew appearing. There are also two special solo performances planned, one with William Shatner and one with Patrick Stewart. All of the live readings will be Los Angeles, except for Patrick Stewart’s, which will be held in New York City.

Read on for the full details.

LeVar Burton’s Reaction as Reading Rainbow Kickstarter Surpasses Goal of $1 Million in Less Than a Half a Day May 29, 2014

by Kayla Iacovino , Filed under: Celebrity,Web , comments closed

Just 11 hours after its launch, LeVar Burton’s new Kickstarter campaign to bring back the hit children’s show Reading Rainbow (1983-2006) surpassed its goal of $1 Million. And, this was before LeVar had a chance to advertise the cause during today’s Reddit AMA. At the time of writing, the campaign is only a day old and reached nearly $2 Million in donations. The crowdfunded campaign is raising money to “bring Reading Rainbow’s unlimited library of interactive books and video field trips to kids everywhere” and to help classrooms in need. Perhaps LeVar underestimated the impact that the show had on the Millennial generation during their childhood. See his reaction when the campaign officially went over their goal.

Immediately after the Kickstarter campaign surpassed its $1 Million goal, the team posted this video of LeVar Burton’s reaction to the outpouring of support.
