In my attempt to bring more awesome into people's lives, I just had to share this with you. Reading Rainbow is coming back via Kickstarter! Don't click away yet! : I pledged at the $400 level and LeVar Burton is going to record the voicemail message on my phone. I know, so awesome right?! The only trouble is, I have NO idea what I should have him say. So now, IT'S A CONTEST! Just submit your idea on my Facebook page to enter (link).
|Yes, this LeVar Burton|
- One submission per person, so make it a good one :)
- You must submit on Facebook, mainly because it's the best way to do this "in public"
- Obviously nothing rude or offensive...just have to say it
- Be creative, I have a business phone and personal phone but only one gets THE voicemail.
- Feel free to describe the what/why of your idea, beyond just what you think he should say.
- The winner will be the idea I like the best :)
- The contest will be open for at least 30 days
- It will stay open as long as it takes to find a great idea
- Or until LeVar actually needs to make the recording
- Alpha Ready-Made flashlight (w/ battery & charger)
- Alpha Pen (EN/Ti/special edition brass)
- Lambda Top (one off) with a hand-machined tungsten ring
The show was launched in 1983 and canceled in 2009. I was surprised to find it lasted that long, but it means a lot of people "still" know the show. Even some people who are still kids! I haven't watched it since I was little. Really, I swear. Anyway, they are raising money to bring the show back, not to TV, but to the internet, and deliver it to kids for the price of FREE. We have a little boy that just turned 2, and I think it will be pretty cool for him to watch Reading Rainbow some day (for free) and I can tell him it's possible because of people like you and me.
