LeVar Burton's Reading Rainbow Kickstarter Campaign has already been an enormous success. The Star Trek star and former Reading Rainbow host reached out to fans to help him bring an updated Reading Rainbow program back to the public and the fans responded and then some, helping the campaign reach its goal within the first day. Since then, the Reading Rainbow Kickstarter campaign has set a new goal, which it hopes to reach within the next five days and Seth MacFarlane has offered to contribute in a big way.
LeVar Burton announced on the Kickstarter page that Family Guy creator and A Million Ways to Die in the West actor/director Seth MacFarlane has agreed to match every dollar pledged passed the $4 million mark, up to a million dollars. The campaign has currently raised $4,137,194.
