Seth MacFarlane Pledges $1 million to Reading Rainbow
LeVar Burton's camaign to bring back Reading Rainbow has been nothing short of astonishing. While it might seem like a no-brainer to support something as important as children's literacy, the frantic pace at which donations have come in is still incredible. After blowing past the $1 million goal in half a day, Burton set a new goal of $5 million. With three days and roughly half a million dollars to go, Seth MacFarlane has stepped in and pledged to match all donations beyond the $4 million mark up to $1 million.
