While I was growing up, one of my favorite shows was Reading Rainbow. I help instill a love for reading that I still have to this day. The massive stacks of books in my bedroom and living room bookshelf is a testament to that. LeVar Burton has been working on bringing back Reading Rainbow as an app for children to use both at home and in schools. A few weeks back he started a Kickstarter Campaign and reached his goal of $1 million in less than 11 hours. Since then, he has set the goal progressively higher so that the app will be available free to as many schools as possible, and now he needs your help. It is the final two weeks, and he is trying to reach the current goal of $5 million and break the record of Most Support with 91,600 backers.
