I love this idea. LeVar Burton wants to bring the ‘bow back, and he needs our help! Sort of.
Reading Rainbow began in 1983 (it went off the air in 2009), but Burton is starting a Kickstarter campaign to bring it back to every kid, everywhere.
But don’t take my word for it.
If you want to know more, here’s a link to the campaign page, but it has already surpassed its goal.
Sooooo if you want to help with another literacy initiative, our very own Jeanne Pengelly was selected to be among 40 participants to write a novel in three days for the Muskoka Novel Writing Marathon! It is a fundraiser for literacy in Muskoka and Jeanne is 1/4 of the way to her goal.
So if you love reading, and want to help with someone who needs it on a more local level, throw a couple bucks here.
Love you, byeeee!
