Margaret Cho Busks for San Francisco’s Homeless

by REERA YOO | @reerabo

Margaret Cho has launched a two-month-long busking tour in San Francisco to raise awareness and funds for the homeless.

On Monday, the Korean American comedienne, actress and singer arrived at the corner of Haight and Ashbury and set down a guitar case with a handwritten sign that read, “If you have give. If you need, take (please remember your fellow man).”

Joined by Gerri Lee Lawler, Cho performed to a modest crowd and encouraged passerby to donate clothes, blankets, food and money to the homeless.

According to Demotix, Cho aims to busk the streets of SF every day for the next two months in memory of Robin Williams, who co-funded Comic Relief to help raise funds for the homeless. Today, Cho is performing on Castro and Market from noon.

Cho will announce the location and time of her performances each day via twitter. If you’re in the Bay Area, go find Cho and donate what you can to help raise awareness for a good cause!
