You've heard of the wonderful, phenomenal success actor LeVar Burton has had on Kickstarter in his attempt to bring back Reading Rainbow to a new generation. But with just a little more help, Burton can bring the show to 7,500 classrooms free — and all you need to do is let the cast of Star Trek read to you.
Yes, you have the chance to join Burton and a variety of Star Trek stars as at an event where they read to children. For $500, you get three tickets to see either...
• Burton and William Shatner
• Burton and Kate Mulgrew, Jeri Ryan, Gates McFadden and Marina Sirtis
• Burton and Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, Robert Picardo, Jonathan Frakes
...in Los Angeles as part of Reading Rainbow Live. An extra $300 ($800 total) gets you all in to a private Meet and Greet with Burton and his guests after the show. But whether you do the Meet and Greet or not, these rewards also com swith a signed copy of LeVar Burton's new children's book, an exclusive Reading Rainbow calendar, a year's subscription to the Reading Rainbow app, a t-shirt, tote bag, coffee mug and more.
And if for some insane reason you love Reading Rainbow but aren't enthused with Star Trek, there are still a ton of other great reward packages, including reading sessions from the cast of Veronica Mars, Sir Patrick Stewart, and others.
Reading Rainbow is less than $500,000 away from its goal, with just over 50 hours left to go! Sure, helping a child get into the wonder of reading is its own reward, but getting to hang out with the stars of Star Trek isn't a bad bonus Check out the remaining reward packages here!
