LEVAR BURTON: He's KICKSTARTING his way to bringing back READING RAINBOW!

 

 

OMG THIS IS GOOD FOR THE PLANET!

 

 

 

Actor LEVAR BURTON, who famously starred in the iconic movie ROOTS, and who played STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION's Geordi LaForge, is also known for something else... 

 

... as the guy from PBS's show READING RAINBOW. 

 

The show went away from PBS, but kids... still need to learn to read. They need to know that what they find in a book is important. And so, BURTON is trying to raise A MILLION BUCKS to bring READING RAINBOW back as a web-series... along with specialized classroom episodes and more... 

 

... because KIDS NEED TO LEARN TO READ. And so, he wants to make the show available to every kid... everywhere!
