DAY 15: My Star Trek Friends Are Joining Our Mission!
Good morning, y’all!
We’ve had two amazing weeks so far, and we’re on the way to reaching our first stretch goal of $5,000,000. But now, we’re getting to the hard part. Together, we met our first goal so fast that a lot of people think this project is already over!
But you know, and I know, that it isn’t true! Our cause matters as much as any project that’s ever been on Kickstarter. Between now and July 2, we still have the chance to help so many more children discover a love of reading.
For over thirty years, I’ve loved sharing stories with children and meeting families. That’s why our pledge rewards already include the chance to attend a few special live storytime events that we’re calling Reading Rainbow Live!
But if you grew up with Reading Rainbow, you might remember that I didn’t read most of the books on the television show: on each episode, a special guest joined me to read a book.
To keep us moving toward our next goal, I’ve enlisted some friends to join us.
READING RAINBOW LIVE… with the cast of Star Trek!
Starting today, at 2 PM PST, we’ll be adding new pledge rewards for four special Reading Rainbow Live! events, where I’d like you and your child to join me and some special guests:
Reading Rainbow Live! is a series of one-time-only events where I’m inviting you to bring your child and join us for a few hours. My friends and I will read from a few children’s books. We’ll all watch a classic episode of Reading Rainbow together, and everyone will go home with some special goodies. And afterward, there will also be a smaller Meet & Greet reception where a small number of families can join us to take photos, sign autographs and talk!
These are going to be truly special events, so I hope you and your child will come out and join us. (And remember, we’ll be reading childrens’ books -- so please use at least one of your three tickets to bring a child along!)
We’ll release tickets in three rounds, starting with a few “Early Bird” discount tickets this afternoon at 2 PM PST. More will be available tomorrow at 11 AM PST, and a final round will be available on Friday at 1 PM PST.
That’s all for now. I’ll see you next time -- and I hope to see you at Reading Rainbow Live!
