Charlie Sheen has launched a website to raise money for victims of the deadly storms that raged through Alabama last week.

Sheen set up the site, dubbed Torpedoes Against Tornados, to raise money for victims after seeing the destruction firsthand.

"I'm in Tuscaloosa. it's beyond words," Sheen tweeted Monday.

According to the website, those who donate at least $100 will receive a baseball signed by Sheen.

"Our hearts and minds remain with the strong, proud, enduring people who continue to be affected by this tragedy and who have lost those dear to them," the site reads.

It's not the first charitable act Sheen has initiated recently.

During his My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option tour, which ended Tuesday night, he organized a fundraising walk for bipolar disorder in Toronto. At an auction held in conjunction with the walk, a signed Toronto Blue Jays jersey went for $1,000, with a warlock shirt going for double that.

And Sheen raised $20,000 -- which included $7,000 of his own money -- for the Bryan Stow Fund during his San Francisco tour stop over the weekend. Stow, a San Francisco Giants fan, was brutally beaten last month outside Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles.
