(Newser) – Actor LeVar Burton's campaign to make Reading Rainbow available in classrooms has gotten a big push from Seth MacFarlane. The Family Guy creator has pledged to match donations up to $1 million on Burton's Kickstarter page, reports AP. Burton hosted the beloved PBS show until its cancellation in 2006 and subsequently created a tablet app. Now he's looking to raise $5 million to create a web series that teachers can show in the neediest classrooms, explains Time. The fundraising campaign ends on Wednesday.
