Mark here. It's 9pm on Wednesday night here in LA, and I am trying to compose our first backer update, but it’s hard with all the emotion built up over the day. We’re all somewhat in shock.
About an hour ago, I left LeVar on the set of PERCEPTION, where together we watched you guys make the unimaginable happen.
We shot this iPhone video for all of you, right then and there:
As you can see, it was an emotional moment. We all dreamed and believed we could hit $1,000,000 in the 35 days of the campaign… but never, ever did we imagine you would get us there in 11 hours.
From the bottom of our hearts: thank you.
To the 30,000+ of you who have pledged so far: there is so much we want to share with you, starting tomorrow. If you sent in questions, I promise, FAQ’s are being written RIGHT NOW! (So many of you commented and wrote questions that our mail server froze. #happyproblems)
Tonight, I can tell you that, as excited as we are, there’s a lot more we can still accomplish together, and that every single dollar pledged to this Kickstarter will go to the same two goals: put Reading Rainbow onto more platforms, and get Reading Rainbow into even more classrooms for free.
From all of us: thank you, thank you, thank you.
