Help Reading Rainbow And Have Star Trek Actors Read You Stories

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!
