Charlie Sheen Makes Single Biggest Donation Ever To USO

It looks like the USO is in the "Winning!" category, thanks to actor Charlie Sheen. Sheen has promised to donate at least $1 million, the largest single donation ever given to the USO.

Sheen has agreed to give 1 percent of the profits from “Anger Management,” the new TV show in which he stars, with a donation of at least $1 million guaranteed, according to the Military Times.

The New Jersey Star-Ledger quotes a statement released by Sheen as saying:

“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.”

The USO, or United Services Organization, is a 70-year-old group whose goal is to lift "the spirits of America's troops and their families."
