Charlie Sheen hasn't spent all of his money on crack and hookers ... in fact, the Warlock has announced he's donating ONE MILLION DOLLARS to support our men and women in uniform.

Sheen has pledged to give at least $1 million to the U.S.O (United Service Org.) ... the largest single contribution the USO has ever received from an individual.

Sheen says he will donate 1% of the profits from his "Anger Management" earnings ... with a minimum of $1 mil ... and an unlimited cap. So the more $ he makes from his show, the more $ goes to the USO.

Brig Gen (ret) John Pray, EVP and Chief of Staff, USO released a statement saying, “[Sheen's] support is greatly appreciated, especially from our wounded warriors and their families.”

Sheen also released a statement saying, "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."

He adds, "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.”

I'd respect this a lot more if he didn't feel the need to announce this, he's doing this for publicity not out of generosity.

THIS is the sort of winning we need to see more of. Not just from Charles, but all people who get paid stupid amounts of money for not much effort.

I don't usually appreciate Mr. Sheen, but when I do, it's because he is one patriotic rat bastard. Stay gracious my fiend.

Good for Charlie. Too bad he made it look like a desperate plea for attention and ratings.

You ROCK, Charlie!!
THIS is what ANYONE who makes this kind of money should be doing with it. No one person needs millions and millions of dollars, all to themselves! Are you listening, Pro-Sportsmen/Women??

One way to try and buy ratings..... Support our troops and get Anger Management the additional 90 show order. Pretty tricky. Win/Win... or should I say, Win/Winning!?

Truth    

SOUNDS LIKE A PR MOVE TO INCREASE RATINGS FOR AN OTHERWISE CRAPTASTIC SHOW. MORE PEEPS WATCH THE HIGHER THE REVENUE AND GREATER THE DONATION. YOU LINE SHEEN'S POCKETS AND AT THE SAME TIMELINE THE USO'S POCKETS. NICCCE MOVE TO CHARLIE'S PR TEAM! #WINNING #TRUTH!!
