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.

Why are they wanting their donations to be made so public? Is this all about publicity?

This is a nice gesture. I'm sure there will be many mothers n fathers of young children who can't raise this type of money to save their childrens lives. This will break their hearts.

stevie may have given more than charlie, but charlie was first to be touched by the needs of this little girl. her father worked with stevie and i think it wonderful that stevie gave to help family. but have to give charlie kudos for what he did. it is really hard and sad for anyone to have cancer and the cost is out of sight. anyone who donates to cancer fund is a hero in my book.

It's nice that these celebs are throwing their cash around to help someone in need, but she is not the only kid with cancer. How about getting off the bandwagon and spreading it around a bit more. It makes me kind of sad for all of the desperate families who see this sort of good will but don't get a slice of it themselves.

Hey Cha~lie, instead of throwing your dirty money at that selfish, ungrateful bag-of-wind named Lindsey Lowdown, you should donate it to people who aren't going to snort it up their nose.

These 2 girls aren't the only children with cancer. It should've been spread around instead of just giving it to 2. Stevie is blind, but I'm sure he knows he's black. Why 2 white girls, couldn't find a black child with cancer!

I love stevie but this actually made me see him negatively. He knew the father all along, why didn't he donate money before charlie sheen? And why does his have to be public. Charlie did it privately.

EVERYONE below that talks about how these people should spend THEIR money and how it would work best for YOU are stupid. If he wants to give that money to a child of someone that has PROTECTED him for 2 decades then leave him the f alone! And just because you see this ONE video you think he(they) don't help others??! Pfffft! Like the blind man doesn't support other charities...like for BLIND PEOPLE?!!!! But nooooo... this act of kindness just wasn't good ENOUGH for you miserable f
