Stevie Wonder to Charlie Sheen

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.

Charlie gave his money quietly and out of the public eye, did not want or seek publicity, just gave cause he cared, Stevie obviously also gave because he cared. He also made the little girl feel special publicly , who cares abt the whys they gave .... They GAVE ! Everyone who questions the WHYS, shd question them selfs on the whys THEY didn't give some .... Merry Christmas !!! Eddie
