ARTE: Reading Rainbow

Reading Rainbow has a kickstarter that began a month ago and I was one of the early contributors that pledged with in the first 24 hours.  When the campaign launched the goal to reach was 1 million.  After the campaign went live they surpassed the million dollar mark in just a few hours. By day 2 they had surpassed the 2 mill mark and by day 3 they surpassed the 3 mill mark.  The raised their goal to 5 million and are just half a million shy. At just over 91,000 backers it is the largest crowd sourced campaign in history.  I gave because Reading Rainbow was one of the television shows that I was most excited by when I was a child.  The way they used art, music, dance and theater to make reading seem cool are one of the main reasons why I love reading and the arts!

They have a little under 47 hours left so get to it!
