Kindly Done

Charlie Sheen is donating $1M to the USO.

It's the largest single contribution ever from an individual to the USO.

Charlie Sheen announced today that he'll donate 1% of the profits from his new FX show Anger Management to the USO. He guaranteed a minimum of $1 million will go to the organization. And, there's an unlimited cap on the final donation, he says in a release from his rep.

"His support is greatly appreciated, especially from our wounded warriors and their families," says Gen. John I. Pray, Jr., executive vice president of the USO.

I have to label this one as hoodah thunkit? But it's kindly done. I have plenty of good memories of the USO, both as a serviceman availing myself of their services and as a USO volunteer helping other servicemen. It's a great organization.

@Old NFO: I'm shocked, actually. My two regular charities are the USO and Navy/Marine Corp Relief.
