Author Daniel Handler (more widely known as The Series of Unfortunate Events’ Lemony Snicket) and illustrator/artist Lisa Brown, a married couple, have generously pledged to donate a whopping $1 million to Planned Parenthood, just as it’s being threatened with a loss of funding from the federal government.
Brown told Buzzfeed:
“My husband and I have supported Planned Parenthood for years, for obvious reasons: it’s a great organization that has provided top quality health care for countless women and families in our lives. This year, Planned Parenthood has gone through a series of unfortunate events, and it felt right to make our support more public and more dramatic.”
Planned Parenthood is grateful for this fortunate turn.
