Charlie Sheen donates 25k to Philippines aid

CHARLIE Sheen has donated $25,000 to a Philippines aid charity.

The 'Anger Management' actor has reportedly given the money to the PREDA Foundation, an organisation working to help those affected by the typhoon in the country.

According to website TMZ, Charlie's donation will be used to provide food for shelters set up for those who lost their homes in the natural disaster, as well as to locate missing children.

The generous act comes after the former 'Two and a Half Men' star donated $10,000 to another good cause earlier this month.

After Casey Jones, a crew member on 'Anger Management', put up a poster asking for donations for The Walk To End Epilepsy, the actor instantly wrote out a cheque to help the fight against the disease, which Casey's grandson Dylan was diagnosed with when he was three years old.

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 cancer.

Charlie made the generous donation to help a 10-year-old girl called Jasmine, who is battling an aggressive form of muscle tissue cancer known as Childhood Rhabdomyosarcoma, after meeting her police officer father on Hermosa Beach in Los Angeles and hearing of her illness.
