Man that is crazy Kickstarter success!

LaVar Burton reached his $1 million goal in just 11 hours! This isn't even a day and a half old and it's at $2,548,047 with 57,458 backers!

The numbers are going up literally every 2 or 3 seconds. Amazing! And there's still 33 days left to the campaign!

Thanks for posting this. It's very important. Not only do we have another celebrity going the crowdfunding route to revive a canceled series, the project is educational and schools can really use the content behind Reading Rainbow.
