Briefly: LaVar Burton‘s Reading Rainbow may have reached it’s $1 million goal in a day, but fans would keep backing the project for days and weeks until it reached its $5 million goal. And now that the 35-day campaign has come to an end, it’s time to count how backers donated to the project. We recently reported that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane promised to match every dollar donated to the campaign when it reached $4 million. That must given the campaign the extra push it needed to reach the $5 million goal, plus approximately $400K of interest.

Mashable is reporting that the Reading Rainbow Kickstarter’s final numbers are $5.4 million. You can add another million that will be donated by MacFarline as promised, which would make it a grand total of $6.4 million. The campaign first started back on May 28, and as aforementioned, the project reached its $1 million target in a day. Then it reached $2 million on day two.
