A Kickstarter Project That Could Just Become The Biggest Ever
It won 26 Daytime Emmys and a Peabody and was shown in the living rooms of American families for 26 years. And guess what? "Reading Rainbow" is coming back, via the Internet. This is a Kickstarter campaign, likely to go down as the most successful ever. Originally, this project sought $1 million. After hitting that goal in 11 hours (!!), they decided to up the goal to $5 million. Looks like they'll hit that as well! This is a wonderful example of how crowdfunding can help make possible projects that can have a huge impact, especially in communities that have been hit by funding cuts to education.
