That’s not all Charlie Sheen has been up to.

Last Wednesday, Dawn Williamson, founder of CHERUBS, challenged Mr. Sheen via Twitter to get his millions of fans to throw her charity 25,000 votes in a Facebook contest. Her efforts paid off and Mr. Sheen accepted the challenge. Tweeting and re-tweeting for the charity this week, Mr. Sheen has made it a personal quest to help CHERUBS; “I'm down with Dawn!! @ncdawn RT @cherubs Help critically ill babies with CDH. Take Charlie's challenge to vote! www.voteforcdh.org”

Currently at 3rd place, CHERUBS is a regional finalist in the 2011 Vivint Gives Back Project. CHERUBS and 1000’s of families of children born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) are counting on a miracle from the former “Two and a Half Men” star. “CDH families in 38 countries are cheering him on and so very grateful for his support and the awareness he is raising for our cause” says Williamson.

A child is born is born with CDH every 10 minutes. With a 50% mortality rate, this means 3 babies die from CDH every hour. Winning the contest will help fund research to find the cause of CDH. “50% of money won will go towards genetic research of CDH through Mass General’s CDH Research Study. The other 50% will go towards family support services and awareness” says Williamson. Information about the contest and where funds will go can be found at www.voteforcherubs.org
