Former “Two and a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen pledges $1 Million donation to the USO (United Service Organization) in support to the injured service members.
“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 in a statement featured on ABC news.
The donation is 1% of Sheen’s profits from his new show, Anger Management, which airs on FX network. According to the USO, the actor’s donation is the largest single contribution ever made to the organization. The money will be used to build two new USO Centers that will support ill and injured troops and their families. The facilities which will be erected in Bethesda, Maryland and in Fort Belvoir, Virginia are part of USO’s Operation Enduring Care campaign.
“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 of the USO. “His support is greatly appreciated, especially from our wounded warriors and their families.”
