Daniel Handler is finally trying to make the world a less unfortunate place.

The Jewish author of “A Series of Unfortunate Events” and his wife, illustrator Lisa Brown, have pledged a million dollars to Planned Parenthood, Buzzfeed News reports.

Handler, known to readers under the pen-name Lemony Snicket, tweeted out the news on Tuesday afternoon:

Planned Parenthood responded with expected glee:

Brown explained the couple’s commitment to the organization in a statement to 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.”
