What's Good? Omar Epps and Marlon Wayans!


The actors have teamed up to raise funds for the victims in the Philippines who were devastated by Typhoon Haiyan. The pair hopes to surpass their goal of $25,000 for World Food Program USA.


Their page reads:


"From day one, WFP has quickly mobilized to deliver food and emergency supplies to the children and families hardest hit. We're ready to help and we want you to join us.  How much do we want you to jump in and make this happen for people in need in the Philippines? So much that we're going to match your donations, up to $25,000. Are you in?"


Epps and Wayans are offering up retweets for those individuals donating $25 or more to WFPUSA. The guys join a growing list of celebrities who are doing their part in the wake of the tragedy; Naomi Campbell, Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, Barbra Streisand and others have found ways to help in their own way.


You can catch a full hour of Marlon on The Wayans Bros., airing every day at 5 p.m. on Centric!
