Charlie Sheen To Shell Out $1 Million For U.S. Troops In Record-Breaking Donation
Charlie Sheen is a giver — in a really big way.
The actor has announced he will donate one percent of the profits from his new FX sitcom, Anger Management, to the United Service Organizations (USO), promising a minimum of $1 million and an unlimited cap on the final donation, according to a press release sent to Celebuzz.
And Sheen is making history with his charitable contribution to support the troops.
The gift marks the largest single donation in history from an individual to the USO.
"The USO would like to thank Charlie Sheen for his very generous $1 million donation to our Operation Enduring Care Campaign and his interest in helping us lift the spirits of those who have endured so much to protect the freedoms we enjoy daily,” said General John I. Pray, Jr., Executive Vice President and Joint Chief of Staff, U.S. Air Force. “His support is greatly appreciated, especially from our wounded warriors and their families.”
The actor, 46, will tender the first payment of $250,000 in a private ceremony later this week with Sloan D. Gibson, President and Chief Executive Officer of the USO.
“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,” Sheen said. “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.”
