TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Actor Charlie Sheen quietly donated $25,000 to help tornado relief in Alabama, making good on a pledge to help survivors of the deadly twisters even though some had doubted his promises.
The head of Tuscaloosa's tourism agency, Don Staley, said a representative of Sheen recently turned over money that came in through a fundraising website that the actor set up after tornadoes last spring killed about 250 people in Alabama, including 52 in the west Alabama city.
Sheen wrote a check for about $15,000 after the website generated just $10,000 in contributions.
"He said he wanted to raise $25,000, and he made good on that," said Bob Maron, one of Sheen's managers.

Gee Charlie...better late than never I guess. Despite the fact I'll bet he drops $25,000 on a weekend get-away for himself, it's better than nothing. Timely assistance might have helped a tiny bit more...but it's certain there are still plenty needing whatever $25k split so many ways for aid efforts comes to. Hmmmm...
