Actor Charlie Sheen is still trying to make up for his cringe-inducing public meltdown of 2011. And, all things considered, he’s doing a pretty decent job. He scored a major hit with his new show Anger Management, he hasn’t been arrested or started any feuds, and he’s throwing his money at one very good cause and one very lost cause.
It all started when Sheen heard about the 10-year-old daughter of a Hermosa Beach police officer. Jasmine Faulk is facing a rare form of pediatric cancer called alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. Her treatment costs a staggering amount, and the Hermosa Beach Police set up a fundraiser to pay for her medical bills. Sheen wrote a check for $75,000 and his stunt double Eddie Braun wrote one for $25,000.
The fundrasier’s organizers and Faulk’s family is extremely appreciative of Sheen’s generosity stating, “Big news today for the Faulk family. Together, Eddie Braun and Charlie Sheen donated $100,000.00 to the HBPOA in support of Jasmine’s fight against cancer,” the organization posted on their Facebook page Sunday. “All proceeds go to the Faulk family to support their daughter. On behalf of the HBPOA, the Faulk family and those who support children fighting cancer, we thank you for your generous donation.”
Unfortunately, not everyone is rolling out the ‘thank you’s.’ Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan co-starred together in Scary Movie 5. When Sheen heard of Lohan’s trouble with the IRS, he forked over $100,000 to help cover her bill. You’d think that would at least reward Sheen with a text of gratitude from the troubled starlet, but he reports no appreciation on her end whatsoever.
Telling Entertainment Tonight, “I’m still waiting for a text to say ‘thank you.’ Anything, anything, you know?”
Fear not, Charlie. Jasmine and her family appreciate your monetary gesture more than Lindsay Lohan will ever make of her
seventieth second chance at a fresh start in life.
