If you haven’t heard or checked Levar Burton’s “Reading Rainbow” Kickstarter campaign — you will be elated to hear he has already reached over two million dollars in donations!

Check out Burton’s reaction to reaching the one million dollar mark and 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.”
