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.”

If this prosti$ute loving, porn addicted, boozed up crackhead degenerate really wanted to do something great for the troops, he would donate anonymously. Lots of people, even narcissistic Hollywood types, do good things and don't broadcast it to the world.


Better yet, if he really wants to do something great for the troops and for our country, he should volunteer to clear mine fields in Afghanistan. That I would love to see.

Ah, so he isn't really digging into whatever money he has left...he is banking on the good publicity value and the hope of making money with his new series.

LOSER.

IF THIS GUY( AFTER WHAT ALL HE HAS DONE), CAN BE FORGIVEN, STILL BE ON TOP, SO SHOULD MEL GIBSON.
MEL GIBSON IS BY FAR A BETTER ACTOR THAN CHARLIE SHEEN.

Unsurprisingly, a whole lot of sad sacks start bitching about Sheen not giving that donation anonymously, as if making it public somehow devaluate the whole gesture and/or the actual sum of that check. Of course, what those people actually have a problem with has nothing to do at all with the money, its public knowledge or how it is given away, but everything to do with the person who will donate it. Let's be real: you wouldn't hear any complaint if Clooney, Pitt, Hank or Washington gave up 1% of the money they make on any of their projects to the U. S.O. - actually, any of them would probably receive nominations for sainthood or something over this... But Sheen? That junkie fornicator? Oh no, thous shall not be right! He is the devil spawn! Only nefarious reasons can explain any acts of kindness from such a beast! BURN HIM! BURN HIM BACK TO HEEEEELLLLL!!!

Here's the bottom line, though: the U.S.O. desperately needs that money, because, like it or not, the American public DOES NOT support the troop the way it should have. Oh yeah, when it comes to TALK ABOUT how much you love your army, America is number one by a long shot, no doubt about it. But, when it comes to DOING SOMETHING to show your support? Well... that's where the problems start, doesn't it?

So say whatever you want about Sheen, this time, HE'S DOING SOMETHING RIGHT. I don't know why he's doing it, nor should I, or anyone else, give a flying f*ck, cause it doesn't matter why. As long as THE CHECK CLEARS, he's the good guy here. The largest single contribution the USO has ever received from an individual - and that comes from the U.S.O. (yes, via TMZ) themselves.

Hate him all you want, you can't take that away from him. The troops are the big winners, and it's all because of him. Deal with it.

So he makes this huge donation, but also makes sure everyone knows about it. So self serving; typical addict behavior.

True charity is anonymous.

I won't question his motives. This is a great gesture and should be commended! He could donate to any other organization for ratings but he selected the one that needs more exposure. I applaud him because our nation could do a better job taking care of its soldiers and he took a step that hopefully more Hollywood actors will follow.
