      Hi... I just recently backed another project and thought to myself, "Wow I wonder if they're ever going to ship out the Reading Rainbow rewards," so I came on to check and discovered... that apparently they were all shipped out last year? I never received mine, and I'm very sad. I know that the calendar isn't even relevant anymore, but still. Sad.

      Hello legendary of Reading Rainbow! We are back for a new Kickstarter! A Sci-Fi this time! :) And I am checking all the old projects we had back... And I would really love to watch it somewhere! It's any way that I can pay and watch it? Or maybe part of a subscription? VOD? Everything will work :) we just want to watch it again :) please let us know...

      @Lando and @Jenny, if you email us (, we can help you get your rewards! Thanks :)

      I have still yet to receive my shirt from this project. Literally the entire reason why I backed it

    5. Jenny Schinke on October 4

      I haven't received any digital download codes. Has anyone received them?

    6. Christine Tine on September 1, 2016

      I gave up after months of looking for my email about my tote. I was glad to contribute, but bummed I never got my pledge items.

      I never got my VHX link for the Collector's Edition episode. I've gotten every other reward from my tier. Thanks for any help!

      Hi, I didn't think it was a big deal that I never received my pledge items, but now that I know they are actually sending them out, is there a way to update my address?

      I never received the poster signed by the artist and Mr. Burton for my additional $300 pledge. It is disconcerting but comforting to read that I am not the only one who did not receive items.

      Not the biggest deal but I never got my mug from this campaign.

      I haven't received any info on items... then again I wasn't in a specific hurry to get them.

    12. Jay Allen on July 15, 2016

      Still haven't received the items I was promised. Personalized voice mail message and the other things. It's been a while. Would be nice to have an update.

    13. Mad1316 on July 2, 2016

      A heads-up for everyone. I have spoken to someone on the subject. If you comment on here, they should be reaching out to you individually to answer questions and deal with concerns. If they don't, please let me know and I'll pester them about it personally. I see no reason why anyone's questions or concerns to go un-addressed. I may not have direct pull or influence, but I am more than capable of pestering the right people to get things handled. So, just let me know on here if you haven't been properly taken care of and I'll do what I can :)

    14. Lisa Ellery on June 29, 2016

      Never did get what I was supposed to from backing this.

    15. Diggeh on June 29, 2016

      Remember the events that were supposed to happen? Good times.

      I paid a lot for my pledge and haven't received my items. How do you get in touch with someone in line with customer support?

      It has been 2 years now, and there are still things like the Donald Glover boat episode that haven't been done, or any apparent effort to do so. What gives?

      Are pictures posted anywhere from the William Shatner Patrick Stewart event?

    19. Derek Velez on May 26, 2016

      You can keep your free month subscription. I'll be going with ABC Mouse now.

    20. Derek Velez on May 26, 2016

      While I am happy that this has taken off I am a bit disappointed that I paid 25 dollars and only get one month when the 1-month subscription being offered is 10 dollars. Seems as if backers got the short in of the stick. Usually, it's the other way around and backers get the perks.

      Still waiting on my iTunes codes for the entire collection. (or for the entire collection to even be on far I see only 16 episodes of 152)

    22. Andrew Smith on April 24, 2016

      Never received my DIGITAL DOWNLOAD of the special Reading Rainbow Collector's Episode.

    23. Lando Ruiz on April 24, 2016

      I never got my shirt :/

    24. Ryan Read on April 14, 2016

      On the phone with Reading Rainbow for the school subscriptions. Norma, Caroline and Natalie. If there are any problems, let me know. I put down your names so we could get things together.

    25. Allen Tran on April 12, 2016

      I'm not happy it's a subscription based model.

    26. michelle D on April 8, 2016

      Donald Glover and LeVar on a boat.. was that already broadcast? I never got an email about it....

    27. Ryan Read on March 22, 2016

      Still hoping I get an answer on my classroom dedication for my school. I haven't heard anything.

      Is the Patric Stewart even in NYC ever going to happen? We're coming close to two years after I donated to Reading Rainbow, and while you all raised quite a bit of money, clearly, no one has paid much attention to fulfilling your promises.

    29. Nance Cedar on March 3, 2016

      I teach language arts at Van Buren Middle School in Albuquerque, NM. How can we apply for the Reading Rainbow Skybrary for our school?

    30. Gregory Maddox on January 28, 2016

      will LeVar's 1/28 speech be posted online? I know it just happened today but I could not find it anywhere.

    31. Leetcat on January 28, 2016

      Where do I find the list of schools who got the free subscription?

    32. Leetcat on January 28, 2016

      @T.J. Brumfield who is going to pay developer costs, and maintenance? Also the creators of the lessons have to be paid, they use subscriptions to pay for continuing cost of developing more programs.

      I think it should be free if feasible, but you just might get popups like wikipedia asking for donations for maintenance.

    33. T.J. Brumfield on January 28, 2016

      I get that end users at home will pay for this, but why isn't this free for all classrooms?

    34. Ryan Read on January 26, 2016

      Sent an email about my classrooms. Hopefully get an answer soon.

    35. Robert Uy on January 26, 2016

      I received all the items I requested. My wife, son and I all wear our t-shirts with pride.

    36. Ryan Read on January 16, 2016

      Waiting to on my 3 sky library classrooms still

    37. David Benedict on January 13, 2016

      So I never got my reward, even though Kickstarter said I did... who do I contact to discuss this?

    38. Phillip Pickett on January 12, 2016

      Got the adopt a classroom sky library access! When will the personalized videos go out?

    39. mannclay on January 10, 2016

      Has anyone heard about the NYC event dates yet?

      James Geary on January 2, 2016

      Anyone know how to get the collector's episode? Was reviewing my pledge rewards and there was a special collector's episode we were supposed to get. Digging through all my RR emails I couldn't find any info on it.

    41. Fred J. on December 24, 2015

      Donald Glover and LeVar on a boat Update??

    42. Ryan Read on December 11, 2015

      I had 3 adopt a classroom and I no longer work for the school but I want to give it to them but at his rate they might not get it until the following year. Luckily I'm doing my dissertation work at the school still. So, I'm in contact with the staff.

    43. Leonardo Corbucci on December 9, 2015

      Great Job! From a project creator to another project creator... Thanks to be here and make it happen! :) you rock!!!!!

    44. Andrei Freeman on December 1, 2015

      I am also in the adopt a classroom bucket. My son is in grade 3. It was aimed at grades 2 and 3. I'm going to feel horrid if he is out of the classroom before it arrives.

    45. Phillip Pickett on November 13, 2015

      Still waiting on the Adopt a classroom package. No answers...I ask for updates about once a month. Get the response "it will roll out next month" answer... I dont know what to do anymore. If you guys are legitimately behind why not update the people that backed you?

    46. Tracey Switek on November 10, 2015

      It says it shipped Jan 20 of this year but I never received anything. =(

    47. Tracey Switek on November 10, 2015

      Hi! I never received my rewards. Who do I contact about this?

    48. Bonnie Presser on November 6, 2015

      I still haven't received anything from what I backed. The book. The thirty etc?

    49. Catherine Williams Clark on November 5, 2015

      I think this whole thing is a sham and I for one am totally disappointed. I will never give money to this project again and I feel really let down. The starter pack didn't give me what was promised and I thought the whole idea was to bring Reading Rainbow back. Where is it? I'm done. This is just another way for you guys to get money out of people. Shame on you!!!!
