Watch: LeVar Burton Celebrates 'Reading Rainbow' Campaign Success

Television host and actor LeVar Burton celebrated his Kickstarter campaign to bring an online version of the former TV show “Reading Rainbow” to needy schools raising $1 million on the first day.

Burton said that the money is “going to allow us to do a lot of good,” and that the donations were “literally changing the world one children’s book at a time.” WILX reports that the campaign raised $1.8 million on day one, and that contributors can win prizes, including a chance to wear the visor Burton wore when he played Data on “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”
