Charlie Sheen donates $50,000 to charity

CHARLIE Sheen has donated $50,000 to charity.

The 'Anger Management' star, who is reportedly worth $125 million, gave the money to My Friend's Place, which works with young homeless people in Hollywood.

The organisation's executive director, Heather Carmichael, sent the 48-year-old actor a thank-you note, obtained by gossip website TMZ.com, that reads: "On behalf of the homeless youth My Friend's Place (MFP) serves, thank you for your generous gift of $50,000. Your support helps us provide life-changing services that nourish the body, inspire the mind and equip for a brighter future. Together we are able to care deeply for each of the 1,700 who walk through our doors by supporting their journey of homeless and into stability and well-being."

Charlie has donated a lot of money to various organisations this year.

Last month, he gave $25,000 to the Philippines aid charity, PREDA Foundation.

The former 'Two and a Half Men' star also wrote a cheque for $10,000 and gave it to Casey Jones, a crew member on his comedy series, who put up a poster on the set asking for donations for The Walk To End Epilepsy.

In January, the actor donated $12,000 to pay the funeral costs of a paparazzi photographer who died after being hit by a car while crossing a road to follow Justin Bieber's car.

And the month before that, the wealthy star gave $75,000 to a little girl, who was battling an aggressive form of muscle tissue cancer known as Childhood Rhabdomyosarcoma.

Charlie made the generous donation to help a 10-year-old girl called Jasmine after meeting her police officer father on Hermosa Beach in Los Angeles and hearing of her illness.
