Stevie Wonder to Charlie Sheen

I See Your $75K Cancer Donation & Raise You $25K!

Stevie Wonder is following Charlie Sheen's lead -- donating a TON of cash to help a little girl fight cancer ... and not that size matters, but Stevie's check was bigger.

Stevie was performing at the Nokia Theatre in L.A. last Saturday when he invited 10-year-old Jasmine Faulk on stage -- and presented her and her dad with a giant $100,000 check.

Stevie crowned the gesture by serenading Faulk with a rendition of "Isn't She Lovely" -- so if you don't feel like getting teary-eyed ... don't watch the video.

Oh yeah, Jasmine also grabbed the mic and said, "I love you Stevie!" before giving him a big adorable hug. Take that, feelings.

TMZ broke the story ... Charlie donated $75,000 to Jasmine's fund last week when he caught wind of her story through his stunt double Eddie Braun. Eddie had already donated $25,000 himself.

As for the Stevie connection ... we're told Jasmine's father -- a Hermosa Beach police officer -- has worked privately for Stevie since 1997.

What? The fathers worked privately for Stevie since the 90s? How come he is just now coughing up the cash?

I think the reason the check's so big was so Stevie wouldn't miss when he signed it.

Some people on here are so fvcked up. When a celebrity fvcks up money you say...oh give it to charity. Then when they give it to help, some say it is a PR stunt, or why a white girl. How many of you donate to charity instead of b i t c h i n g What a sorry azz bunch

Youre the king, Stevie! Dont listen to these naysayers, $100,000 is a lot of cash no matter who you are.

Opinionof1 I love how you assume all white people are racist. Many they just don't like you because you appear to be a very close minded, uneducated person...which there is no room for in this country anymore. It seems to me that you are the racist here and maybe you should move somewhere that is willed with people to your liking. And I would outright call you the name you are so eagerly praying someone will but it would be a waste of time because you know exactly what you are.

This really made me cry .. I am so happy that there are people out there to help people in need.

People lets not judge weather this is for publicity or anything else i from my point of view think this is a great generosity from Charlie and also from Steve now, and lets hope the little girl fights the cancer as she deserves to live a happy healthy life.
Love from far far away :)
