He'll donate proceeds from merchandise sales at his San Francisco show to benefit a man who was beaten outside a Giants baseball game.

Charlie Sheen is getting charitable.

The actor has launched Sheen's Korner to "benefit those in need," his rep, Larry Solters, tells The Hollywood Reporter in a statement.

Sheen's Korner will launch its fundraising efforts at Sheen's April 30th San Francisco show at the Nob Hill Masonic Auditorium. All the profits from his merchandising sales will be donated to the Brian Stow Fund, to benefit Stow's family and defray medical costs stemming from the vicious attack against Stow outside a San Francisco Giants baseball game last month. (He was beaten and put into a medical coma; doctors have said he's showing signs of brain damage.)

Sheen also coordinated a bipolar awareness walk and auction at his Toronto show earlier this month.

He hosted several episodes Internet show called Sheen's Korner shortly after being fired from Two and a Half Men.
