The "A Series of Unfortunate Events" books wrapped up when we were still in the throws of youth. But their author's story continues. Daniel Handler, commonly known by his pen name "Lemony Snicket", resurfaced to donate 1 Million dollars to Planned Parenthood , an organization that has been called into question by bigots of all shapes and sizes.

He tweeted:

"@lisabrowndraws (his wife) and I are giving 1 Million dollars to @PPFA. We've been very fortunate, and good fortune should be shared with noble causes."

This is a series of extremely fortunate events for the organization, which has been fighting tooth and nail against the swinging hacksaw of the Republican party, which fully plans on dismantling it for a conservative agenda. Twitter users came to Handler's defense and applauded him for his kind efforts. Planned Parenthood's official account thanked him immensely as well. A little kindness goes a long way...huh?
I'm pretty impressed, and am glad that someone is drawing attention to an organization that is often viewed thanklessly. What do you guys think of this fortunate event?
@nicolejb I hope a Bill Gates comes in and funds them entirely
Wow this come at a good time too! When PP is unsure of their budget they will get from congress! should be interesting what other funders come through if they aren’t getting gov. money.
Hahahaha I don’t know if I can actually see him doing that...but hey, it’s worth dreaming @InPlainSight
right @nicolejb I think that's why he stepped in. Very conscientious.
@InPlainSight agreed! ^_^
