Donald Faison: 50,000 Pairs in 50 Days!

Scrubs star Donald Faison called up JustJared.com while on the set of his top secret Funny or Die video. The 35-year-old actor talked about the latest cause near and dear to his heart — The 50,000 Shoes Challenge.

JJ: How did you get involved with The 50,000 Pairs in 50 Days Challenge?

DF: I had a lot of shoes and sneakers in my closet that I wanted to get rid of. My girlfriend [Cacee Cobb] and I were hanging out in my closet and works for a shoe charity called Soles4Souls, so she asked me if I could give them away.

CaCee told me 300 million kids in the world don’t have shoes, so I thought it would be a good idea to give those shoes away to the kids that can’t afford it. That’s how I got on board. She then took me down to the mission and I gave out shoes to homeless people down there. Since then, when you realize that you’re helping people out, it makes you want to do more. Since then, CaCee‘s gotten Zach [Braff] involved, and a few others.

JJ: How many shoes have you donated yourself?

DF: I want to say 30 pairs, but I don’t think I have that many sneakers, so about 15 pairs.

JJ: When do you get back to filming Scrubs?

DF: The 31st! Very excited.
