Charlie Sheen has a (well-earned) reputation for his bad boy behavior, but the "Anger Management" star is also showing that he has a softer side, too. Sheen - along with his stunt double, Eddie Braun - just donated $100,000 to the family of a Hermosa Beach, California, girl

"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 family wrote on their Facebook page. "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."

This isn't the first time Sheen's donated cash to a good cause. Earlier this year, he pledged to donate one percent of the profits from "Anger Management" to the USO. He also just donated $100K to Lindsay Lohan to help her pay off tax debt.

Sheen's not the only celebrity getting into the Christmas spirit.

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt has done a lot of charity work over the years, including a lot of work in post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans. His most recent charitable donation came while in the U.K. on Thanksgiving.

Pitt donated all of the money in his wallet -- $1,100 - to Southampton General Hospital's neonatal unit. A rep for the fundraiser asked Pitt's bodyguard about donating and he came back with the money a few minutes later.

"I couldn't believe it, I was completely dumbstruck," Tricia Wilson-Hughes said.

"He said if he had more he would have given it. I said honestly that is more than enough, but if he wants to do anything in the future that is absolutely fine. You hear negative stories about A-listers but I won't hear a wrong word against him, I am in awe of him."

Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys really is a "Girl On Fire" - especially when it comes to raising money for good causes. The singer raised $1.3 million last week for her AIDS-relief charity, Keep a Child Alive.

The largest donation of the night came from billionaire Stewart Rahr - he pledged $1 million. Wish we had that kind of money to donate.
