You loved LeVar Burton in Next Generation. You loved him in Reading Rainbow. And now you get to love him for just being plain awesome. And you'll know how awesome he is, because you'll get to hang out with him, Skype with him, go to Comic-Con with him... if you donate to the Reading Rainbow kickstarter.
In the video below, LeVar starstrikes (is that a word?) everyone in a school, and then drops some bomb info on us about why Reading Rainbow is so important. And, being the smart guy that he is, he leverages the fact that EVERYONE LOVES HIM. The more you donate, the cooler your opportunities are.
So, most of us probably don't have $10,000 laying around to donate so that you can have dinner with LeVar and Brent Spiner. But if you donate $110 or more, you'll get something cool, even if it's just a signed headshot.
But even if you don't donate, let's just all revel in the awesomeness that is LeVar Burton. This guy is legit. Can you imagine the world without him? Don't even answer that. We don't want you to.
