The world is ready for more Reading Rainbow. A Kickstarter to bring back the series for the web launched just two weeks ago and blew past its one million dollar goal in less than 24 hours. LeVar Burton and his team have their eyes on stretch goals now, and they’re aiming for five million dollars. To help them get to that milestone, Burton has recruited the help of fellow Star Trek actors for four special Reading Rainbow Live! events. The line-up includes Patrick Stewart, William Shatner, Gates McFadden, Jeri Ryan, Brent Spiner, and many more. Yes, you can pledge to buy tickets for story time with Captain Kirk. Neat.
To be able to attend one of these magical sessions you have to pledge $1,200, travel to either New York or Los Angeles, and bring a kid with you. Also, the project has to get to five million dollars. Whew.
