Charlie Sheen Donation

Charlie Sheen's latest charity is donating $10,000 to the family of Parkland, FL teen Teagan Marti to help her in getting a therapy dog for following a 2010 accident in which she fell 100 feet on a ride at a Wisconsin amusement park, suffering brain, spine, pelvis and internal injuries.



 
"I like to pay it forward," Sheen was quoted as saying. "People come into your orbit for a reason. You don't always know what that is ahead of time, but if I ignore these requests then I don't have any opportunity to see where these things lead us, or lead me."


Teagan, who was injured at Extreme World in Wisconsin Dells, was paralyzed for months, with no use of her arms or legs, but she can now walk with the help of a walker. Her mother Julie revealed that the family has encountered frequent financial woes in the years since the accident. Their house is in foreclosure and insurance because Teagan's therapy has ran out.


"I think he's a very kind person for helping me and my family and very generous," Teagan claimed of Sheen, while her mother Julie stated she was in "such disbelief".

"I was crying … what a guy, what a guy," Julie added.


It has to be noted that Sheen, 47, learned of the family's woes through his godfather, who is a family friend of Eau Claire resident Lucia Wilgus, who previously held a fundraiser for the Martis. When she explained to Charlie the teen's therapy dog would be in the neighborhood of $6,000, he gave $10,000 and left the door open for more, if necessary.


It seems that Charlie is truly kind and generous. What do you think?
