We already know how the Reading Rainbow kickstarter campaign was able to accumulate the $1 million funds needed to relaunch the PBS series into a readily available scholarly program for the youth. In fact there were some really cool incentives for fans should they give larger amounts. But with the campaign drawing to a close in a few days, a new backer has emerged, and he will donate up to $1 millions, of his own money towards the program.

That person is comedian Seth MacFarlane. Hit the jump to see how he is helping the Reading Rainbow Kickstarter campaign out.

MacFarlane has agreed to match whatever comes in after the $4 million mark; Reading Rainbow has brought in over $4,119,000 so far. Although the $1 million goal has been met, Lavar Burton’s hopes to reach the $5 million target. So if it ends up earning that remaining $1 million, the campaign would have a $6 million total backing. Sounds great right? Head over to the official Reading Rainbow Kickstarter page to contribute to the campaign and earn whatever incentives are left.

Here’s what Burton had to say:

“With his help, we can make an even bigger difference for an entire generation of kids.”
