      Is there ever going to be the episode on the Boat? I mean, it has been 3 years since the Kickstarter ended, and you promised more updates a year ago, but have failed to do so.

      @LeVar Burton & Reading Rainbow - Did you guys know that the website "www.helpreadingrainbow.com" has expired?

    5. LeVar Burton & Reading Rainbow Creator on April 5, 2017

      @Jenny Owens & @PersonalGenius - We emailed you!

      @HaikenEdge - Hi! Just wanted to let you know that we did get your request for a refund, and it's being processed right now. Thanks for your patience :)

      The subscription model is very money grabby, and poor people can't afford it.

    11. PersonalGenius on March 27, 2017

      I also never got my rewards. I see in the updates that the download URL was sent...just not to me. The link is dead now.

    12. HaikenEdge on March 26, 2017

      I emailed fulfillment about a refund on the Donald Glover & LeVar Burton livestream on the 23rd, but haven't heard back from them since then. Is this standard practice?

      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.

    14. Leonardo Corbucci on February 11, 2017

      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...

    15. LeVar Burton & Reading Rainbow Creator on October 24, 2016

      @Lando and @Jenny, if you email us (fulfillment@rrkidz.com), 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

    17. Jenny Schinke on October 4, 2016

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

    18. 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?

      Denise J. Khorey-Harriman on July 28, 2016

      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.

    24. 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.

    25. 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 :)

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

    27. 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?

      Hellmark on June 17, 2016

      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?

    31. Derek Velez on May 26, 2016

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

    32. 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 iTunes...so far I see only 16 episodes of 152)

    34. Andrew Smith on April 24, 2016

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

    35. Lando Ruiz on April 24, 2016

      I never got my shirt :/

    36. 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.

    37. Allen Tran on April 12, 2016

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

    38. michelle D on April 8, 2016

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

    39. 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.

    41. 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?

    42. 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.

    43. Leetcat on January 28, 2016

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

    44. 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.

    45. 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?

    46. Ryan Read on January 26, 2016

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

    47. 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.

    48. Ryan Read on January 16, 2016

      Waiting to on my 3 sky library classrooms still

    49. 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?
