Charlie Sheen Makes Record Donation to USO

by at . Comments

Charlie Sheen has made it the tiniest bit harder to hate him now.

The actor announced today that he will donate 1% of his profits from Anger Management - which is off to a solid start on FX - to the USO, guaranteeing that military organization at least $1 million and leaving the final donation figure uncapped.

It's a record donation from one individual.

"The USO would like to thank Charlie Sheen for his very generous $1 million donation to our Operation Enduring Care Campaign and his interest in helping us lift the spirits of those who have endured so much to protect the freedoms we enjoy daily,” said General John I. Pray, Jr., Executive Vice President and Joint Chief of Staff, U.S. Air Force.  “His support is greatly appreciated, especially from our wounded warriors and their families.”

Look for Sheen to hand over the first installment ($250,000) later this week. Says the now Twitter-free star:

“It’s an honor for me to be able to give back to these men and women of the military who have done so much for all of us. They put their lives on the line for us every day, and I’m just happy that my work on Anger Management can bring a little bit of relief to the troops and their families.”

That's the Charlie I love. He didn't lie about his show before, he knows he made a lot of money that wasn't deserved, because 2 and a half men was Awful, and now he is giving back, even if it's a ratings ploy, because the new show is just bad too. At least he is making a move to do something nice. Thanks Charlie. If every celebrity gave a million to end hunger in the US, a big dent would be made. Helping wounded soldiers is huge too. The US military does not take care of their own after they come home. I know from experience, my brother died from neglect in caring to protect those on the field.
