Reading Rainbow Is Now An App... And It Needs Your Help.

When I was a little girl, I loved Levar Burton on Reading Rainbow... I remember singing this song in my head all the time...

I'm sure you've heard about the Kickstarter campaign to fund Burton's new tablet app and get it into schools, and that there are only 2 days left (it's over July 2nd!!).  And I'm also sure you've heard that Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Ted and Family Guy, is matching the next $1MM in donations.

This is just a friendly reminder to those who haven't had a chance to donate yet, that you're running out of time.  That your chance to help bring this to children on the web, or in their classroom, is waning.  The goodies are great, and if you donate at a level that includes a membership, and you don't have use for a membership, you will be able to donate it to a child in your life or school in need when you fill out your backer survey.  So, as Levar said,

"Let's do this, y'all...we can genuinely change the world one children's book at a time."
