LeVar Burton’s campaign to raise $1 million on Kickstarter has reached the end of the rainbow, finishing its 35-day crowdfunding effort with a $5.4 million pot of gold. The donations from 105,855 backers will be used to bring Burton’s cult TV classic, Reading Rainbow, to a new generation of readers by building a web version for families at home, creating a classroom version for teachers and providing free access to it for schools in need. Burton had huge help in the final days thanks to comedian Seth MacFarlane, who promised to match every dollar pledged from the $4 million mark to the $5 million mark.
