Just when you thought you were sick of his bad-boy antics, self-proclaimed warlock Charlie Sheen surprises us all by making a generous donation to the USO.

In what will become the largest single donation to the non-profit, Sheen has pledged to donate a whopping $1 million to the USO Operation Enduring Care campaign, which will use the funds to build an entertainment center for injured troops in Bethesda, Md.

“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, via CBS News. “They put their lives on the line for us every day, and I’m just happy that my work on ‘Anger Management’ can bring a little bit of relief to the troops and their families.”

Sheen declared he will donate 1 percent of his profits made from his new “winning” sitcom Anger Management, which premiered on FX earlier this month. He’ll donate no less than a minimum of $1 million with no cap on the final amount.

He’s expected to make the first $250,000 installment to the USO this week.
