**8 days left** For Future Kids: Star Trek Friends team up to bring Reading Rainbow back as they read stories to kids and inspire their magical worlds of imagination. 8 days left & Reading Rainbow still needs your help to get into 7,500 disadvantaged classrooms for FREE! Here's why:
1. Yes, they passed their first goal of $1,000,000 and that means they are able to provide Reading Rainbow for free to at least 1,500 classrooms in need.
2. Their next goal is to reach $5,000,000 and they will be able to provide free access for over 7,500 CLASSROOMS. That's 5x MORE CLASSROOMS.
3. I hope you will consider contributing even $1 toward this worthy cause. My personal goal of 100,000 backers, will be nice to reach. It will send a clear message to the State boards of education in the United States and they will see that we want them to work with Reading Rainbow. I loved this program as a child and I continue to have a passion for reading. I don’t have any children of my own, but I think it’s important to instill the love of reading (and imagination) in our children. I hope you’ll join me in supporting this cause by paying it forward with a share link, which is as generous as $$. (http://kck.st/1kKwSrD)
