LeVar Burton Weeps in Gratitude Over Donations for Reading Rainbow

It's been one day since LeVar Burton began crowdsourcing funds to reboot beloved television series Reading Rainbow as an educational app and he's already raised over $2 million, more than twice his original goal. Butterfly in the skyyyyyyyyy! You can go twice as hiiiiiiiiiigh!

Yesterday, after the Kickstarter hit the million dollar mark, Burton recorded a video tearfully thanking everyone who donated:

"I am overwhelmed. Thank you so much. This is going to enable us to really, really do a lot of good. I am so proud that this community has come together to support this effort and it's a people's thing. It's the $5, it's the $10, it's the $25, it's the $1 pledges and it's unbelievable. Or actually, it's very believable. Thank you do much. We are literally changing the world, one children's book at a time."
